About My Clients

Are you struggling to pick up and find YOU after divorce? Are you feeling overwhelmed about finding love again after a break-up? Do you feel pressure from your past divorce in your current relationship? Do you feel the weight of co-parenting with your ex, while you construct your new blended family? Are your struggling to connect with your children after divorce? If you connect to any of these questions and want to feel confidently connected to yourself and others, I can help get you there.

My Background and Approach

My therapeutic approach is based on attachment, solution-focused, and strategic therapy theories. I feel that serving my clients is to help them to use solutions that come from within, and work to fit your unique personal life and relationships. I am strategic in that I gather information to have a deeper understanding of how the problem(s) are affecting your personal life and relationships. I help clients to see what solutions are working in their lives, and what solutions are not working - only making the problem worse. I earned a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy through Regis University. Prior to being in private practice, my background was in Social Work and Human Services. I served individuals with severe mental illness and developmental/intellectual/cognitive disabilities, and their families for over 15 years.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My goal in working with individuals, couples, and families, that are experiencing and/or have experienced divorce is to break down the perspective of the “broken home”. As a child of divorce/blended family system and being a co-parent after my divorce, I believe that being informed in identifying the problem(s) and strategically implementing change will bring the best solutions. This defies the belief of a broken home, and leads to resilience. You are the architect of your relationships, and can build healthy connections.
