Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I offer a free 15-minute consultation via phone or online to help us see if I might be the right therapist for you. If we continue from there, we will set up an hour-long intake appointment in which I will gather information for you - some relevant history, details about your primary complaint(s), and what your goals are. I try to adapt my approach to each client, as much as possible and incorporate mindfulness where applicable.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have over 12 years of experience working as a mental health counselor and psychotherapist. I have a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado. I am trained in Gottman couples therapy. I regularly attend various trainings in order to improve my work and stay up-to-date as a therapist.
