I am a licensed clinical social worker with twenty years of experience with a wide range of clientele. At Grit Therapy, I help adults gain the skills to work through depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, anger and chronic illness. I believe that life is short, and you deserve to live it doing what you love with a smile on your face. However, I also know that our fears, sadness, and pain can easily keep us from living our best life. Through an open, honest therapeutic relationship, I can help you overcome the barriers to joy and connection.
I have worked with people ages 0 – 100 in the fields of Adult Psychotherapy, Chronic Illness, Pediatric Oncology, Hospice, Hospital Social Work, Case Management, and Child Protection. This experience allows me to develop tailored therapy goals with my clients. My approach is deeply rooted in dignity and respect. I help my clients identify and develop their strengths, so they can feel empowered to make lasting, healthy changes.
I was born and raised in Upstate, New York. After attending college in Indiana I continued to travel West and settled in Colorado where I have lived ever since. I have a love for the outdoors and when I am not working or spending time with my family, you can find me running, camping, snowboarding, and looking for the next festival. I look forward to continuing to explore this beautiful state.
