About Me

Throughout my life I’ve been passionate about helping people realize their fullest, healthiest self. The modalities I draw on to support my clients include psycho-dynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, family systems, and solution-focused therapy. It’s an honor to get to know my clients on a personal level and witness great change in their lives.

I’ve been in private practice for over 20 years. I founded Life Counseling as an expression of my desire to help people address the needs of their whole self. In July 2011, I moved to the Denver/Boulder area to be near my extended family and close to the outdoors. I am licensed in Colorado as a Licensed Professional Counselor.

My Education

I earned a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Dominican University in San Rafael, CA in 1994. I received my Marriage, Family and Child Counselor license in California, after completing 3,500 hours of clinical work. Later, in Chicago, I managed a team of therapists, provided group and individual therapy supervision to therapists and interns, and created programs for an adolescent outpatient clinical program.

Before becoming a counselor, I earned a BA in Communications from Pepperdine University and pursued a career in public relations and marketing. In my practice, I draw on both my corporate background and my training in psychology to help people in their personal lives and their careers.
