I offer a positive, relatable, support system for teens and adults. Working with me, you can expect a safe space to share and heal, with an emphasis on creativity, strengths, and empowerment to reach your goals. I specialize in challenging life experiences including, but not limited to: life transitions, coping with mental illness, managing learning disabilities, and fostering healthy relationships. Together we can process stress, build on your strategies, and find positive and healthy ways to move forward in a way that works best for you.
I have taken a variety of trainings throughout my career including Trauma Informed Care, Diagnostics and Interventions, Introduction to DBT, Cultural Sensitivity and Diversity Awareness. I have both a Bachelors and Masters degree in Social Work from Texas State University. Since graduating from my Masters program in 2020, I have learned significant amounts of strategies around de-escalation and communication (useful for conflict resolution, parenting, and couples), as well as developed expertise in helping individuals identify their triggers and develop coping skills. I am a Licensed Social Worker (LSW), offering therapy for clients in-person and virtually within Colorado for individuals of all backgrounds, identities, and ages. Please note for clients under 10 years old, depending on symptoms/behaviors, I may expect involvement from parents in treatment.
Aside from my professional experience, I am a 26 year old female, cat mom, plant enthusiast, and a person of many artistic hobbies. I strive to be and thrive as a creative, intelligent, and bold person in all aspects of life. I have learned throughout my personal life that the key to growth is outside your comfort zone. Count on me to be a therapist that will encourage you to grow while supporting you through any discomfort that process may bring!
