I am a therapist specializing in individual therapy, and maintain a private practice in Wheat Ridge, CO.
I know that many people are finding that this season in their life has become overwhelming. Current events, traumatic events, major life changes, and even just the ongoing stress of daily living can become too much to cope with effectively. That's when I can help. My goal is to work with you to help you learn and manage coping skills and find your balance once again whether it's just a temporary stressor that won't go away, a lifetime of dysfunctional and invalidating relationships or a personality disorder. Life doesn't have to be overwhelming: You can gain resiliency and the strength to life live to its fullest. I am honored to provide a Christian perspective on mental health and incorporate prayer and scripture into the counseling session when desired.
Every person's struggles are unique. My goal is to work collaboratively with you to find a plan that meets your needs and caters to your strengths. Whether you struggle with depression, worry, panic attacks, traumatic memories, grief, or unhealthy behaviors, you can find peace. I draw from several counseling theories to collaboratively created the perfect treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
I was raised in the Hispanic culture of New Mexico and moved to Colorado to help one of my children pursue an Olympic dream. I stayed in Colorado because I love the mountains, opportunities and healthy lifestyle mindset. I am a mom, grandmother, and widow. I get that life doesn't always go according to plan. When I'm not in the office, I enjoy reading, cooking, crafting, gardening and visiting with my grandchildren.
