About My Clients

I guide professionals struggling with perfectionism and anxiety. And other healthcare workers or people experiencing COVID19 stress or relationship struggles. I guide people on epic life changing voyages through anxiety, depression, grief, terminal illness, trauma and violence. Expeditions through identity exploration, alternative relationships, major life changes, immigration and addiction. In over twelve years, I have guided hundreds of people along their journey in Spanish or English.

My Background and Approach

I have a BA in Psychology with a minor in Ethic studies from the University of Colorado Denver & a MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling Psychology from Regis University. I've additional training in addictions, trauma and I am DBT & EMDR trained. My clinical orientation is primarily person centered with some cognitive behavioral, solution focused, gestalt & existentialism woven in. I currently work full time as a Behavioral Health Provider in a family medical clinic as a generalist. There I collaborate with medical providers as part of a treatment team focusing on whole body health. This role has afforded me additional experience and hands on training in screening, assessment, diagnosing & understanding of pharmacology & correlations between physical/chronic illness & mental illness. We all have had or will have some mental health concerns at least once in our lifetime. Our body & mind work together. I believe this knowledge & awareness bridges us & reduces some societal stigma.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a huge social justice advocate. I believe Racism, Sexism, Classism, Ableism, Anti-Semitism, Ageism and Heterosexism, Couplism etc. still actively exist and thrive in America. I also believe that I do not earn some ally badge that says "I am done" or "have achieved something and can stop now". I am an active member of the LGBTQ* community. I provide community and organization presentations on this and other cultural issues. Currently I am tackling trying to create space and acceptance of the LGBTQ* population in rural Colorado.
