Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Colorado.
I work to create a warm and authentic environment that we can utilize to explore different areas of your life that you feel stuck in. One area I specialize in is working with people struggling with eating disorders/body image in which I’ve seen that the need for stress management, comfort, or control is met by dangerous behaviors of bingeing, purging, restricting, or over-exercising which become all-consuming.
I seek to help you find understanding in these behaviors, validate those needs, and discover new ways to meet your needs. I also specialize in working with people struggling with depression, anxiety, life transitions, and women’s issues.
I also care deeply about working with women that are pregnant and postpartum. It is often indirectly communicated to mothers that they are expected to be self-less and put the needs of others before their own. How can we expect mothers to care for others when there is little care given to them?
While becoming a mother is filled with love and excitement it can also be scary, isolating, and emotional. Mothers often do not have a village to lean on for support and are left to try to manage their difficult thoughts and emotions alone. I believe that mothers deserve to be nurtured and cared for no matter where they are in their motherhood journey.
It takes a great deal of courage and vulnerability to pursue counseling and I am truly honored to be in this role of partnering with people on their journey. I believe that our emotions hold a lot of wisdom and power and should not be ignored but explored and validated.
