    Relationships bring our greatest joy and our deepest pain. As an individual therapist, couple’s counselor, relationship and sex therapist for the last 14 years, I provide HOPE and practical tools to help individuals and those in relationships to heal past hurts, create stronger emotional bonds and bring more desire and intimacy into their relationships. I collaborate with my clients, welcome their feedback and meet them where they’re at to create positive lasting change.

    My work is my passion! I love watching individuals and couples grow to become happier and healthier than they ever thought possible. I am currently practicing teletherapy throughout the state of Colorado and internationally.

    In my free time I enjoy spending quality time with my adult children and friends, playing with my dog Buddy, listening to podcasts, studying health and wellness, cooking, reading, hiking, flyfishing, meditation, traveling and learning to paint with water colors.
