As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in practice for more than 25 years, I’ve been helping individuals, couples, families, and college students remove obstacles and adapt to some of life’s most difficult challenges. Philosophically, I believe that supportive, effective therapy allows people to gain an emotional resiliency to process and cope with stressful situations and crises. We are at our best when we know how to manage negative experiences.
Originally from the East Coast, I received my BA in Psychology and English Literature from Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania in 1992. I earned my master’s degree in 1995 from the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 1997. I feel so honored to help people find strength within their lives, and I can’t imagine doing anything else.
I’ve been married for more than 25 years and have two children, a son in college and a daughter in high school. As part of my personal mindful approach to life, I consider it part of my life’s work to help others, meditate and express gratitude. I practice yoga regularly and love to cook, read, and spend time with friends and family. I enjoy anything that allows me to be active and relish the beauty of the outdoors.
