My  Story

Originally from New York, I received my BA from the University of Baltimore, Maryland. My early working life included such positions as: Program Director and Recruiter for a summer youth expedition company in Pennsylvania; Project Manager for a research and design company in Maryland; and Media Sales Specialist for an advertising firm in New York City. What all of these jobs had in common - and what I was particularly drawn to - was the high level of communication and collaboration. I realized that I had a passion for this kind of work and a degree in counseling would allow me to extend and explore that passion.

Shortly after receiving my MSW from New York University, I married and moved to Summit County, Colorado.  I also gained two adolescent step-sons.

While in Colorado, I worked in both Summit County and Boulder as a psychotherapist in private practice. I also worked with the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) as a therapist and a group leader, and as a facilitator for Strengthen Families Program. In 2011, I was fortunate enough to co-develop, and participate as a member of the therapy team for Legacy Camp (now Camp Forget-Me-Not), a therapeutic adventure for children coping with the death of a family member.

I have studied and continue to study the evidence-based model of therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), completing Level 2 with Dick Schwartz and Frank Anderson.

Additional modalities of training and accreditation include:

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

  • DARe to Connect/Attachment, Trauma & Intimacy with Diane Poole Heller

  • Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)

  • Active member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW).

  • Oregon State LCSW: # L7711 and Colorado State LCSW: #9925116

There are thrilling new frontiers being forged in psychotherapy and in brain science research. All of it has me excited to continue learning and collaborating with clients and practitioners.
