My professional desire is to provide meaningful, individualized, and supportive clinical services to all individuals seeking such. I practice therapy and consulting services on the belief that all individuals can heal, transform, and develop resiliency when he or she is able to address trauma, heal past harm, foster safe and healthy relationships, and is treated with integrity and respect. I realized my life’s passion to be a social worker and practitioner when working as residential staff with kids placed out of the home in the foster care system. My passion to be a helping professional blossomed from my earliest experiences supporting kids and families navigating challenging and traumatic family situations. My commitment to youth, families and each person’s integrity serves as my foundation of support for each client to achieve his or her individualized and therapeutic goals.
I hold a master’s degree in Social Work from The University of Georgia and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Colorado since June 2015. I have worked in the field of Social Work and therapeutic services for more than 20 years, serving adolescents, children and families, couples, adults, and individuals seeking substance use recovery.
Before developing my private practice, I have worked with adolescents, youth and families in residential treatment programs, county government, the juvenile delinquency system, schools, and outpatient treatment programs. I have worked in the following roles and continue to pursue additional education and training in relevant areas of clinical social work practice.

When I'm not working ...
You will find me spending cherished time with my family and friends; spending quality time with my adorable fur baby; wandering around in the great Colorado outdoors; yoga-ing, dancing, traveling to new places, adventuring, or cultivating life with my hands in the dirt.
