Throughout my career I have focused on advocacy for mental health care and learned the depth of need for accessible services in the Denver Metro area. I also learned the ins and outs of resources for mental health and crisis care in Colorado. As I worked for change in the system, I realized that working directly with clients is my strength and passion. I decided to follow my heart in my own practice seeing clients in a warm inviting office at Three Little Birds Counseling in downtown Littleton.
I'm almost a Colorado native, living here since the age of 11. I love the beauty of our state. My East Texas roots still inspire me: music, art, tall trees and the quiet experienced walking outside. My favorite activities are being with my family, playing guitar and enjoying the arts.
I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)
with over 20 years of experience working with clients as a therapist and social worker. With my diverse background in mental health and human services, I found my passion: helping clients of all ages find their strengths and discover satisfaction, peace and happiness in their lives. I specialize in guiding female clients through difficult life transitions from adolescence to retirement. I also enjoy working with male clients who find my specialties to be a good match.
Are you feeling stuck?
I understand key issues for adolescent girls and women that can lead to unhappiness:
Influence of cultural expectations/role dissatisfaction
Physical development/changes throughout life
Defining and creating boundaries
Recovery from emotional, physical and sexual abuse
My work is client driven and focused on your strengths. I consider my style to be relational and eclectic, drawing on diverse therapeutic styles and concepts, such as cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, and problem solving, so I can fine tune our work to your needs. I believe that change is a result of understanding patterns and finding motivation. My clients and I work collaboratively to find the source of problems and discover the influence of background and mental health on behaviors and decisions. Therapy with me is often fun, directive and empowering. Expect to do some homework and make positive changes.
