While working toward and after obtaining my Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology in New York City, I realized that working within a community to help individuals heal was the focus of my passion. I initially worked with disenfranchised women to regain their stability, confidence, and independence. Many of these women were victims of domestic violence and/or street crime. I continued to work with individuals who were struggling to be effective within their communities. Since 2005, I have specialized in working with adolescents with histories of trauma to address their attachment, mood, emotional, and behavioral disorders.
I have experience working with individuals with a wide variety of mental health symptoms, histories and experiences. I have been described as having a calming presence as well as a supportive yet firm demeanor.
I am a provider for the Give an Hour organization, which provides no-cost therapeutic services to members of the armed forces, as well as a provider for the Second Wind Fund of Metro Denver, which provides no-cost treatment to adolescents who are at-risk for suicide.
