Psychologist in Louisville, CO
I truly admire the clients I work with and learn from them every day. I have unconditional positive regard for them and by believing in them and their innate abilities, I know they can overcome their difficulties. I am here to guide, support, and provide tools to my clients on their journey to complete their goals (e.g., to relieve anxiety, feel less depressed, succeed at work). I help my client's develop insight into what is happening in their lives and get back in touch with their best self.
ACT is an exciting type of therapy that I have seen help many individuals. It incorporates mindfulness concepts and uses metaphors as a tool for healing. I have had extensive training in ACT and am always excited to learn and work more with ACT concepts and techniques, which are always growing and evolving as the ACT community is thriving. As with the other techniques I use, I like to integrate ACT tools with other approaches for a best fit for each client depending on their unique needs.
I have extensive training and experience in CBT. CBT typically works well for those individuals who like a hands-on approach to therapy and don't mind having worksheets to fill out on a weekly basis. I like to integrate CBT concepts and skills with other approaches for a best fit for each client depending on their needs.
Anxiety can be debilitating. Sleepless nights and missed/avoided lunch dates are just a few of the casualties of anxiety. You might be worried excessively about most things, worried about your loved ones, your own health, afraid to leave the house, talk to others, or spend hours replaying conversations in your head. I have treated many types of anxiety throughout my career as a psychologist and would like to share my favorite coping skills with you to help you achieve some peace of mind.
Everyone experiences life transitions but sometimes they can be difficult and take a toll on our mental health. I have worked across the life span from ages 5 - 90+ and have seen many clients through challenging life stages as well as unexpectedly difficult times (e.g., illness, loss, divorce). Getting the right kind of support during a difficult time can make all of the difference, and seeing my clients through these transitions is some of the most rewarding work I have done.
Most of the clients I have worked with are experiencing stress of some kind. Whether it's worry about finances, relationship stress, work-related stress, or family stress, I am well versed in the impacts stress can have on one's well-being. I have a toolbox of coping skills I would like to share with you to help relieve some of the pressure you've been feeling.
