I am a narrative therapist whose work is informed deeply by attachment theory and trauma research. Our work together will be multifaceted and geared toward the restoration of your heart, and sometimes finding where your heart has ‘gone missing.’ Often, we need to change the focus of our thinking. At other times, we need to reconcile with our own bodies. And sometimes our bodies tell our story when we can’t find the words. My process will help you honor your spirit, soul, and body … listen to them … and give them the care they need.

Over the past decade, thanks to pioneering research, therapists have made monumental strides in understanding and treating the traumatized brain and neurophysiology. I have incorporated these truths into the care provided to my clients. We are not meant to live our lives ‘stuck’ in negative thought patterns and repetitive conflicts. It is so much easier to live well and love well when we feel well! I do Somatic work so that your body is part of your healing process as we work in areas of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy). Through the course of our work, we will address core change at the brain- and body-circuitry levels, which naturally create a greater sense of wellness. I am also trained in EMDR and, though it is not the sole focus of my practice, we can discern together whether it can aid your healing.

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in both Texas and Colorado. After teaching high school and college, I pursued a counseling degree and worked toward my Ph.D. To know more about me, click here.
