I have been practicing since October 2014.
I am gender affirming, sex positive, and supportive of all orientations, lifestyles, and relationship dynamics.
People 18 years or older of diverse backgrounds including heterosexual, pansexual, homosexual, bisexual, queer, questioning, cisgender, transgender, non-binary, and autistic (type 1).
Couples of diverse dynamics including monogamous, polyamorous, and sexually open.
I can meet online or over the phone with anyone who is located in Colorado at the time of the session.
Why I Do This Work
Mental illness is real and it can feel soul-crushing. I have faced my own mental health challenges and I want to help others learn what I have to overcome them. I realized many years ago that I not only have a strong interest in counseling psychology and techniques but that I also have an obvious aptitude for it. This is hard work but it typically comes easy to me. I believe in science and I enjoy using proven strategies that create lasting change. Love and compassion are among my top values and I believe the world will be a better place if we foster them in ourselves and each other. I believe healthy relationships are vital to our wellbeing. I understand that addiction is not a choice but getting help and quitting is. I know that far too often people with autism feel the need to change themselves to suit others. I realize people who are not cisgender and/or heterosexual can have a harder time finding a therapist who they feel comfortable with. Helping others be happier and healthier, and watching their successes along the way, gives me a deep sense of personal fulfillment that I can no longer imagine my life without.
