Philosophy and Therapeutic Approach

It is brave to begin therapy and take a step out of where you are to pursue a better life–I am honored to share this sacred space with you. I want to create a safe space for you to be yourself in our sessions free from judgement. Being vulnerable and honest is a huge step toward healing and reaching the life you want to lead. It can be overwhelming at times, but you are never alone in this process.

My goal each session will be to create a safe and inviting environment so that you feel comfortable sharing your story. I will guide your session so that you are able to discover new possibilities and reach your goals. It can be difficult to open up about the struggles you are facing, but I will be by your side with the best approach and treatment specific to your needs.

What to Expect in Therapy

In the beginning of our time together, I will make sure any questions you have about therapy are answered. From there, we will get to know each other, set goals for you (or your marriage, or your family), and work together toward more fullness for your life. I believe that God intends for you to “have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10).

I understand that we find ourselves in many different places on our spiritual journeys. I am happy to incorporate prayer, scripture, and spiritual practices into your sessions, only with your permission.

Personal Qualifications and Experience

After graduating from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 2001, I became a pilot. Throughout my years in the Air Force, most of my time was spent teaching and leading people. I have always loved people and enjoy hearing their stories. After I left the Air Force, I became a coach in fitness and nutrition. I found my clients needed more than fitness and nutrition to battle their struggles and realized counseling was my true passion. So, I dove into a Masters of Mental Health Counseling at Colorado Christian University.

My heart is to help married couples and families heal from trauma. I have also focused my studies on grief counseling and helping people through major transitions in their lives. I am passionate about helping members of the military, veterans, and their families as they deal with separation from deployments and the transition back to life together.

Personal Interests

I have had a lot of varied experiences in my life from teaching people how to fly airplanes, traveling around the world, flying combat missions over Iraq and Afghanistan, transitioning to being a Stay-At-Home-Mom, to becoming an adult student. Adventures fuel my soul and I hope to share enthusiasm and joy with everyone I meet. I enjoy cooking for friends, playing with my kiddos, and getting outside as much as possible.

I am married to my best friend and fellow pilot named Ryan, and we have three amazing kids. We also have two dogs, a cat, and a hamster. This is my fourth time living in Colorado and I love it here! I relish the rare opportunities of sitting in silence (because my three kids are LOUD) and looking at the beautiful world God has created for us to enjoy.
