Philosophy and Therapeutic Approach

At the end of “The Wizard of Oz”, Glinda helps Dorothy understand that she had the ability to return home all along. One of my most important roles as a counselor is to empower and encourage you by identifying your existing strengths, resources, and abilities. I believe that emphasizing the unique set of “Ruby Slippers” that you already possess can promote positive change, resilience, and growth!

During Dorothy’s journey to Emerald City, she connected with friends who supported and cared about her. I believe that humans (in every stage of life) deeply desire to be understood and connected with another person. According to neuroscientist, Dan Siegel, positive changes can take place through the process of telling your story to an empathic listener who makes you feel understood and heard. I approach the privilege of creating a safe, relational home for the painful parts of your story with compassion and sensitivity.

What to Expect in Therapy

My priority is to create a space of acceptance, encouragement, and trust. I will dedicate our initial sessions to getting to know you, your values, and what makes you tick! I desire to foster the freedom and safety for you to be yourself (there’s only one YOU!) and ask any questions you may have about the time we will spend together. You can expect the therapeutic journey to feel collaborative, supportive, empowering, and hopeful. We are in this together! I consider it a great honor to be by your side as you navigate overwhelming feelings that seem to be getting the best of you.

My positive approach to counseling celebrates your victories and growth! I also make it a priority to consider the whole person (mind, body, heart, and spirit) in our work together. During our sessions, we will explore strategies and tools to practice together and at home. If you would like to incorporate your faith and/or prayer into the counseling process, I am happy to do so.

Personal Qualifications and Experience

I graduated from Denver Seminary with a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a Biblical and Theological Studies certificate. I also served as an elementary school teacher and hold a Master of Arts in Education from George Mason University. After fifteen years of teaching, I found myself having a difficult time prioritizing academic progress over the emotional needs of the students in my classroom.

During my internship experience with Knippenberg, Patterson, and Associates, I worked collaboratively with individuals and parents of young clients. I also led socialization groups with school-aged children where we explored communication skills, expressing big emotions, making friends, resolving interpersonal problems, and cooperating with adults and peers. Each day, it became clearer that the world of clinical mental health is where I belong!

Personal Interests

After spending the first 20 years of my life in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, I moved to Virginia where I served as an elementary school teacher in Newport News and Fairfax. In 2005, I headed west to Colorado, continued teaching, started a family, and established some roots. In 2015, I lost my husband to cancer and began an ongoing grief journey with my two daughters. I felt called to hang up my teacher hat and begin a new chapter in the world of mental health counseling.

In 2021, I married my dreamy husband, who lives in Littleton with my daughters, three sweet, crazy dogs, and me. I love to laugh with my husband and watch him sing with his band. Listening to my 17-year-old sing and play her new guitar and watching my 14-year-old shine when she dances fills my heart right up.
