    I view life as a journey, with twists and turns along the way we may not expect. Ultimately, I believe a destination awaits us where we may find peace, contentment, and fulfillment. If you are feeling lost or overwhelmed, I will partner with you to discover your “inner compass” and navigate the path ahead with greater clarity and confidence.

    My own journey has traversed several careers before arriving at the practice of psychotherapy. After pursuing work as a writer, community organizer, and environmentalist, I recognized that the thread connecting these passions was a desire to promote greater connectedness and well-being among people and the planet we share. This led me to become a clinical social worker, supporting individuals along their path to growth and healing.

    After earning my Master of Social Work degree from Colorado State University in 2019, I worked in the Fort Collins community mental health system assisting adults with a wide range of psychological and substance use issues. I am a person-centered, humanistic therapist and use an eclectic approach drawing on my training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, and mindfulness-based therapy practices. I specialize in working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship issues, life transitions, psychedelic integration, and existential concerns.

    Following a lifelong interest in the transformative healing potential of psychedelics, I gained certification as a Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapist in 2019 and offer this powerful modality in my practice. Additionally, I am a meditator and, on request, can apply mind-body techniques in our work together to foster deeper self-awareness and psychospiritual growth.

    In my work as a therapist, I am continually inspired by the resilience and wisdom within each person I meet. Despite what our fears and pain may suggest, I believe we all possess an innate capacity to find relief from suffering and step into the stream of life with a purpose. This is true for you as well, and I would be honored to collaborate with you, step by step, towards realizing your goals.

    Whatever your background, beliefs, or struggles, I will help you re-connect with your own inner healer and arrive at the life that is waiting for you. I look forward to meeting you there!
