I am a white, millennial, cis woman with ADHD and anxiety. My pronouns are she/her. I am a mother, a wife, and a dog parent. In my free time I love baking with my kids, climbing easy trad, and going for hikes with my family.
I am a clinical therapist specializing in working with adolescents and adults who are neurodivergent (especially ADHD and ASD). I also work with adolescents who are struggling with identity and family conflict. I offer parent coaching for parents of adolescents as well as new parents working to integrate their new identity and role. My sessions are nature-based, walk-and-talk, or telehealth. I see clients in-person in South Denver, or anywhere in Colorado via telehealth.
I have a Master of Social Work from the University of Denver, and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Wittenberg University. Before I became a therapist, I worked at a summer camp, as a wilderness therapy guide, and as a recreation therapist.
*I put this first in my “about me” section because my identities, and your identities, are an integral part of who we are and how we appear in therapy sessions. In some ways my lived experience both deepens my understanding of my clients and can be limiting. I am constantly working to acknowledge the ways my identities affect my clients and welcome conversations about identity and privilege in our sessions. I deeply affirm the lived experiences of all members of the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities. I believe health can exist at any size. I am kink- and polyamory-friendly, and embrace all families and lifestyles.
