Education & Approach
I have a M.A. in Contemplative Psychotherapy from Naropa University in Boulder, CO. I have worked with couples, individuals, and kids as staff at various agencies. I continue to seek professional development through specific training, partnering with counseling agencies specialized in working with trauma survivors and play therapy.
Modalities & Approach
- Use the Gottman Method Couples Therapy
- Pragmatic/Experiential Therapy for Couples (PET-C)
- Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFTC)
I work with the WINGS Foundation to provide weekly support groups for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. I lead a weekly group in Boulder for men, and have worked with both women and men one-on-one to support their healing journey.
Boulder Center for Play Therapy (BCPT)
I work and train under the experienced guidance of the staff at BCPT. I believe that with a safe environment and authentic relationship each person has the ability to find healing and transformation: play becomes a medium for expressing what needs to be explored and transformed. I work with children five to thirteen along with their parents to help them have a great life, one in which they can meet life feeling empowered to explore, play, and overcome challenges.
Noeticus Counseling Center & Training Institute(NCC)
Noeticus Counseling Center & Training Institute, in Denver continues to be part of my professional life. I offer trainings to other professionals in Becoming a Love & Logic © Parent curriculum for parents. I have also assisted at Dialectic Behavior Training (DBT) with Ryan Kennedy, PSY.D for psychotherapists and professional counselors.
I am one of the counselors that leads Jumpstart Express, a Prepare-Enrich, relationship assessment weekends. Jumpstart Express provides affordable workshops for couples to explore their strengths and growth areas with professional therapists. Jumpstart Express builds on the work of Prepare-Enrich and adds in some of the latest findings from neuropsychology, somatic psychology, and couples research, such as the Gottman Institute.
