About My Clients
Are you ready for a change, and lost about how to make it? Many of us spend a lot of our lives struggling with what should be and the challenges of what is not. Whether it be substance use, relationship orientation and desires, grief, issues of depression and anxiety, or something else that is bothering you, I hope to co-create a journey in which you can allow yourself to let down, reflect, and gain skills to change the aspects of your life that you want to see improve or shift.
My Background and Approach
I truly appreciate the privilege of providing a safe and nonjudgmental space for clients to explore their needs, concerns, hopes, and dreams. My goal for that space (I like to call it the “therapy cave”) is to allow clients to authentically let down, feel supported with useable tools to address their challenges, and to create meaningful change and reflection in their lives and relationships. I graduated with a Master of Social Work degree from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2020 and have over 8 years of experience providing coaching and support to individuals with persistent mental health challenges and their families. Additionally, I have received specialized training in, and/or have worked with, clients facing challenges associated with identifying with the LGBTQIA+ population, those struggling with opioid and substance abuse, depression, anxiety, grief, relationships, sex therapy, monogamous and ethically non-monogamous relationships, and prenatal and postpartum issues.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I bring a plethora of practices and interventions to sessions to create the most supportive and beneficial experience for clients. Some of those practices include: mindfulness and somatic awareness tools, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. As an individual who identifies as queer and non-binary, it is very important to me that clients feel supported in exploring all aspects of themselves, their relationships, and their experiences. Regardless of what aspect of your identity and experience we are working with, I want you to feel free to be your whole self in our shared space.
