I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Addiction Counselor working in Fort Collins, CO. I received my Master's in Social Work in 2014 through the University of Sothern California. I began my professional career shortly after graduating and worked as a crisis clinician at a local community crisis center, then worked as an integrated behavioral health specialist in the medical field, and finally worked in residential addiction treatment before starting at Colorado Center Assessment and Counseling.
I take a trauma informed, collaborative, and client centered approach to therapy, where my clients set the pace of each session. I recognize that each of us has a unique story that has been shaped by people, places, events, and circumstances. I work to create a space that is safe, warm, and nonjudgement where clients can be themselves. In their stories, I work with clients to heal from pain that has impacted them and work together to develop strategies to grow into a life they want. I look forward to walking with you on this journey.
Personally, I am a Colorado native who loves to enjoy all the beauty that Colorado has to offer, especially in nature. I enjoy being creative through cooking a meal at home, exploring an art gallery, or taking my camera into the mountains for some nature shots. I am a foodie and love to find new restaurants and local coffee shops to explore, often grabbing a coffee and reading my current book.
