Are you looking for a therapist? Are you wondering if some additional support is needed right now?

Life is complicated and can feel overwhelming at times. There are times in our life when we can easily juggle work, family, self-care, friends, social networking, the news and our relationships; we feel like the world is our oyster and we are living large. And there are times when it all feels like too much - like were are failing and falling apart. It is at these times when some additional support can help. I help individuals as they go through life transitions (getting married, having babies, moving, divorcing), experience grief or losses, and process trauma.


Therapy can help.

Therapy offers a calm, quiet space to sort out all that life is throwing at you. My work focuses on mindfulness and understanding the logic of emotion. I help bring perspective and encourage the big-picture goal setting to take place.


Training is important.

I am a trained Relational Psychotherapist with a focus in Self Psychology and Attachment Theory. My work focuses on mindfulness, communication skills and the logic of emotion. 

I received my MSW from Catholic University and did my post-graduate training in both psychodynamic psychotherapy and couples work with the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis in Washington, DC. I am also a practicing Buddhist and focused on bringing mindfulness into everyday experiences.


What is Relational Psychotherapy?

The focus of Relational Therapy is to bring insight and understand to the role that your relationships have in your life and how these shape your daily experiences, your self-esteem and your mental and physical wellbeing. One important aspect of Relational Psychotherapy is that the therapist is considered a co-creator of the therapy. This means that together we will look at what happens in your life, with your relationships outside the room as well as what takes place within the therapy room. 
 
One way that clients describe the difference from other therapies is that they say that it feels like I am more present in the therapy and in the room. I realize this is a difficult and strange concept. I find that the most helpful way to find out if I am the right therapist for you is to call so we can schedule a time to meet for a free consultation. I can be reached at 720-551-8084.


Will therapy help me?

Therapy is not the answer to everyone’s problems. It can’t solve everything. But I believe strongly that connecting with another person and finding a safe place to gain an understanding of what has its grip on you - can open up a path forward. And once the path is revealed - even just the first step - you have movement and this movement forward will begin the process to healing. 

 

How do I schedule with you? Can we talk in person before we schedule?

I offer a free 20-minute consultation so we can see if this is a good fit for what you need - I am happy to meet in person or we can talk over the phone. Please contact me here and we can plan a time to meet at my sunny 28th Street office.

You can also call me at 720-551-8084. I look forward to speaking with you.
