I am a child and adult therapist specializing in anxiety and OCD. I have a true passion for working with clients experiencing anxiety and OCD, and viewing progress and improvement through the clinical process. My enthusiasm for working with children and teens began during my postgraduate work, but was solidified while working with this population in a residential setting specialized in anxiety and OCD. There, I witnessed how anxiety work and exposure therapy can have a profound transformation on my clients’ lives. I find purpose working with my clients and their families, and in finding their path towards a balanced, fulfilling life.
I earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Management from Rice University and a master’s in Clinical Psychology from the University of Denver. I have gained experience working with children and adolescents in both a group practice and residential setting. My internships included Colorado I Have a Dream Foundation, Denver Adolescent Therapy Group, and Pathlight Mood and Anxiety Residential Center.
I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas (Go Cowboys!), but was excited to escape the heat and move to Denver with my chocolate lab. We can be found hiking, fishing, trying new restaurants, or exploring Colorado towns most weekends.
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas. Go Mavs/Cowboys! Love barbeque and Tex-Mex; May use “y’all” on occasion. But after moving to Colorado for graduate school and putting down roots here, I have to admit it’s pretty special and I feel lucky to be here.
The Crown. But I also love a good comfort show that I re-watch way too often, like Friends or Gilmore Girls.
I will do my very best not to talk endlessly about my chocolate lab, Dillon. But no promises.
Is ice cream a food group? I am a frequent customer of Sweet Cow – a must in the Denver area.
I may or may not have booked a family vacation abroad …only to arrive on the wrong week as the rest of my family. Thank goodness I was with my husband and we made the most of it!
I think they would say that my therapy is compassionate. That they feel respected and heard. That they feel supported and encouraged throughout our time together. And that they feel equipped with skills and tools for addressing the difficult areas in their life that brought them to see me. Some clients are likely surprised to find that there is quite a bit of laughter during sessions. It is an honor for clients and their families to share part of their lives with me, and I hope that shines through in my practice.
