I am a Licensed Professional Counselor [LPC] specializing in grief recovery and issues related to unresolved grief and loss, maintaining a private practice in Loveland, Colorado.
After attaining my MA at the University of Northern Colorado, I worked with youth who were abused and neglected, with many suffering the loss and grief of an intact family. Many of these youth sought out acceptance and support from local gang members who were also suffering from these type of losses; which eventually led to incarceration and complicated the root source of these behaviors - which was grief. I am currently in private practice, working with clients 12 and older.
I am an interactive, integrative therapist. My therapeutic approach is tailored to each client to provide support and practical feedback helping them effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach to each individual client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each client to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
