Growing up my family had its issues, as most everyone’s does, but counseling wasn’t as available or as accepted as it is now. Today there are talk shows that help people learn to be better parents and better people. But for those of you that can’t watch Oprah or Dr. Phil everyday for the answers, there are people like me who can help you understand your world, and guide you through the changes that will make it better.
The process of Play Therapy and Counseling is truly amazing. I am proud of the work that I do counseling children, teens and adults including senior citizens. It feels wonderful to help people become unstuck and find their life path. I love my work because I am helping people, which is what I do best.
I have a special interest in children and divorce, grief/loss, abandonment, depression, aging, chronic pain and stress. Since I enjoy people in general, I am also interested in helping those that are tired of feeling sad and hopeless and may be afraid to make a change. There is hope.
My Masters Degree is in Counseling/Psychology from Regis University and I have a Bachelors Degree in Education from Northern Michigan University.
I have extensive experience working with Children, but also Teens and Families in a variety of settings including in schools, camps and athletics. I have been a Big Sister, a Birth Doula and a strong presence in a young girl’s life since 1985. I also was the first female District Executive for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I currently am a member of the St. Vrain Safe Schools Coalition and participate regularly with the Longmont Restorative Justice Program, Longmont Case Conference, Longmont Play Therapy Support Group, Longmont Peer Support Group and The Boulder Interdisciplinary Committee. (I hope to continue this work when Covid has lessened its impact on our lives).
I am a fully Licensed Professional Counselor in the beautiful state of Colorado, with an office located in my home due to Covid. All sessions are conducted via Telehealth using Zoom. My clients have been from many of the neighboring towns including Mead, Berthoud, Firestone, Frederick, Longmont and more.
So what are you waiting for? Please contact me now or call 303.817.4330 and I will get right back to you. I look forward to meeting you and help start your journey to growth and change for You, Your Child and Your Family.
