Children and Family Therapist



I work online using Skype or Zoom

I strive to bring a warm, intuitive, and highly attuned presence to my sessions. I offer traditional talk therapy, and incorporate play-based and animal-assisted therapy with my two dogs, Ruben and Farrah, when applicable. I have extensive experience working with children, families, and adults experiencing transitions such as divorce, postpartum adjustment, and relocation. I acknowledge the fundamental role of the therapeutic relationship and emphasize empathy, congruence, and unconditional positive regard in my work with clients. I believe we can all expect some degree of pain in our lives, but the suffering we experience in relation to that pain can be mediated with therapeutic support.

Over the last 25 years, I have worked with children and families in a variety of settings, from expeditionary learning with adolescents to advocating for children within the criminal justice system. I hold two masters’ degrees; a Master of Health Education from Columbia University, USA and a Master of Social Work from the University of Southern California, USA. I am a Licensed Social Worker in the state of Colorado.

I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Motivational Interviewing. Most recently, I trained in Risk Need and Responsivity principles and employed structured decision-making processes using Functional Family Therapy, Multisystemic Therapy and Trauma Focused-CBT. I maintain a broad specialty in my practice with an emphasis on trauma, abuse, and family.
