My successful clients are active psychotherapy participants who are dedicated and motivated for change or other benefits. Introspective, he/she thinks about therapy outside of the office and attempts to use the knowledge and insight gained to improve relationships, behaviors, and life satisfaction. I treat a broad range of issues including life transitions, relational challenges, depression, trauma, anxiety disorders and mood disorders. At times, psychotherapy requires difficult work from both the therapist and client, and the outcome is predicated by the mutual effort vested in the therapeutic process.

I offer both short and long-term psychotherapy for adults and couples. My primary modality of therapy stems from psychodynamic and interpersonal perspectives, although I also employ cognitive/behavioral techniques as well. I have advanced training and experience with EMDR and extensive psychopharmacology and holistic knowledge. In couples work I utilize many Gottman principles.

I have been practicing psychotherapy for 23 years. My training includes a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Denver Graduate School of Professional Psychology (APA accredited program) and a Master’s degree in counseling from Appalachian State University. I’m a Licensed Psychologist in Colorado.
