How do you pick a counselor?
Finding a therapist can feel overwhelming, especially if you have recently relocated to the Boulder County area and don’t know many people or if you just don’t even know what to look for in a psychotherapist. Whether this is your first time going to counseling or you’ve been in therapy before but are looking for a different approach, I want you to know that in my work with clients in my Louisville, CO office, I am constantly inspired. My clients work hard during their time with me and often experience “light bulb” moments outside of our time together, while navigating daily life. Those realizations in the moment, which result from the counseling work we’ve done together, help my clients to connect in healthier, deeper ways than they would have previously, even when – especially when – it was profoundly difficult to do.
I am consistently amazed by the capacity of people who have excelled in their lives, academically and in the workforce, to use therapy to redirect their power towards addressing challenges they experience in their personal lives. Every day, I work with people who are striving to deepen their relationships or separate from toxic ones, women who have suffered enormous or chronic loss and are making empowered decisions about how and whether to continue their efforts towards becoming parents, and people who discover ways to manage their anxiety such that their true personality can surface and shine, rather than disappear in the shadows.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (CO license number CSW.09924263) with advanced training and experience specifically in providing psychotherapy. I maintain a boutique therapy practice in Louisville, Colorado (Boulder County) where I specialize in helping dynamic, intelligent, driven people, like you, to gain agency over the challenges that overwhelm their capacity to live lives they love. It is important to me that my clients know that I welcome diversity and advocate for equality and justice for all including all body sizes, abilities, races, ethnicities, sexualities, genders, and religions.
