About this pro

Do you feel as if anxiety and and angst are driving your life and decisions? How can you make sure that you’re being calm and rational when the media is feeding you fear?

Allow me to help you learn new ways of bringing calm and rationality into your everyday experience. Together we can train your brain to slow down and begin the transition to peaceful living in exceptional times. 

Right now everyone is looking to do the right thing for themselves and their families yet you and others are also caught up in the fearful news of a long term outlook of 2 years before life can resume what we call normalcy.

There are proven ways of overcoming your fear response. Training in a several modalities specific to anxiety treatment, allow me to assist you in learning how some of these tricks can help you almost immediately and allow me to teach you the treatments that will help long term.

I enjoy seeing the relief in my clients' faces once they realize how easy it is to find relief in rough seas as soon as the have a chance to recognize how much better they feel! It's almost like being locked in a chinese finger puzzle. They've been yanking so hard from both sides that they can't see how to loosen the grip of the fear brought on by the trapped feeling of the finger puzzle to see a way out. The way out is by relaxing the fear (not easy all the time) and realizing that they CAN relax enough to use their thumbs to losen and release and then feel free of the painful stomach tightening, sleeplessness, muscle tightness, and much more.

I've studied anxiety and fear for many years. I've run classes, groups, and my preference, one-on-one work with clients who deal with day-to-day anxiety. Especially now, with Covid-19 causing so much anxiety and fear, I want to help everyone calm down and assess just exactly what they need to do for themselves during these distressful times.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We begin by sharing a 20-30 minute free phone call to discuss if we will make a good team. The rule of thumb by most therapists is that the best results come from a great client/therapist relationship. Some have measured success to be 80% of that relationship! I want you to make sure that I feel like a good fit for you after we talk. Your goals are extremely important.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have received training from the Center for Mindfulness out of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. This training expanded on my learnings at Naropa University in learning how to teach stilling the mind as well as ways to calm the body.

My Master Degree is from Naropa University, the only Buddhist University in North America. This provided me with a deeper understanding of human needs and a great guide to actually providing meaningful therapy.

I have completed specialty anxiety treatment programs and teaching in neuro processing in the brain, both to learn new ways of counseling but also to connect the science of the brain to the way mindfulness takes advantage of this process these brain processes. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

My standard rate is $90 for 60 full minutes but will work with you to find a rate that works in your financial range. I use a HIPAA safe environment online called VT Connect Care. I work throughout the state of Colorado, USA.


How did you get started in this business?

I realized after receiving my Bachelors Degree in Accounting that I spent more time counseling with my clients than doing their accounting. There was so much going on in their lives. I felt like I could help them better with just counseling and allowing someone else to do the numbers.

I began coaching but coaching is encouraged as a telephone business and I want to see my client's faces and they usually want to see mine.

I received my Masters Degree in Psychotherapy and worked exclusively in my office but realized I could reach those who really wanted my specific help if I spread my wings to reach those across the state.


What types of customers have you worked with?

I've worked primarily with clients who live with a multitude of anxiety difficulties. Currently, anxiety is a problem because of our recent needs stay socially isolated, when as humans who need and crave community, we're restricted in our activities. Anxiety is a natural result of the fear we're being fed. We need to be cautious in these times, yet we all need to learn how to handle anxiety. Allow me to help you learn ways to approach your life with some calming habits.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My most recent fond event is Valentine's Day with my husband. It was our 40th shared Valentine's Day. It brought tears to our eyes when we realized the special love we share. Yes, we are fortunate, but we also realize that we worked to be here and that relationships are not merely found, but built.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Always look for a therapist whom you think you will bond well with. It's hard to know by reading. Take advantage of 20-30 minute phone calls to ask questions and talk over your concerns. You'll know by talking with a therapist if you'll make a good team.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

By asking for help you've already made the first big step. You've made the choice to be here. Now it's time to have a brief conversation to see if we'll make a good fit.
