I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Sociology from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and my Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling from the University of Northern Colorado. I was honorably discharged from the United States Air Force after serving our country for six years. I served our community for sixteen years as a law enforcement officer in various assignments including Detentions, Court Services, Patrol, Special Victims Unit Detective, Downtown Area Response Team and Property Crimes Detective.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over eight years of counseling experience across a variety of treatment settings including private practice, juvenile detention center and Elementary & High School Military & Family Life Counselor.
I provide counseling to children (8-12), teens (13-17) and adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), depression, anxiety, trauma and similar emotional disorders. My experience includes working with special populations such as First Responders (Police, Fire and EMS), Veterans, Military, LGBT clients and their families.
I use an integrated therapeutic approach of evidence-based methodologies to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. Theories include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Reality Therapy. With compassion and understanding, I works with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
I am comfortable working with any age, race, religion, color, national origin, sex (gender identity, sexual orientation) and disability.
