I like to think that we are our stories, and I am guided by the value of storytelling as a way for us to find harmony and connect with ourselves, others, and our environment. I also hold that we have the capacity to be flexible in how we hold those stories and how we think about them.
Recent studies in neuroscience support this idea that our minds have a plasticity that allows us to adapt. Just as an adverse experience can create a pattern of maladaptive thinking or behaviors, so too can positive experiences and a supportive therapeutic settling help you heal and live a meaningful life with positive relationships. You’re the best person to guide this; I’m just a compassionate helper here to honor your dignity and worth in a calm space.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate (LCSWA), and I received my Master of Social Work from the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work. My modalities include cognitive approaches like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), mindfulness, narrative therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), for a good night’s rest makes life far more manageable.
I see folks who are struggling with sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, personality disorders, and life transitions, including grief and loss. I also work with families and individuals struggling with a delayed transition to adulthood. This is often referred to as “failure to launch,” which I think is a limiting and inaccurate term, as it’s more commonly a delay towards independence that presents as an acute social withdrawal.
I’m available for virtual and in-person sessions, and I have a few evening hours available. I’m interested in hearing your story and helping you find peace and contentment.
