Its important when choosing a therapist to find a good fit, someone who you feel comfortable speaking to and feel confident in their ability to help you.
As a mature woman, I have experienced many of life's joys and challenges. All of these experiences contributed to my growth as a human being. I bring the lessons I've learned to my work with clients, with empathy and compassion for their struggles and confidence that they too will find their own path to contentment and success.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I received my Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Nova Southeastern University, a COAMFTE accredited university. I practice heart-centered hypnotherapy, a form of hypnotherapy developed by The Wellness Institute, one of the oldest and most respected providers of hypnotherapy certification in the country.
I am honored to be a contributing author of The Craft of Family Therapy, by Dr. Salvador Minuchin, one of the founding fathers of the field of Family Therapy. It was my privilege and honor to work with this master clinician and to serve as an editor of the videotape archive of Dr. Minuchin's work, which is available to students and clinicians at here.
In addition to my private practice, I am also a clinician with Growing Self, a boutique coaching and relationship practice based in Denver, CO.
As a complement to traditional talk-therapy, I also incorporate practices of mindfulness and mediation into my work. I have been a student of spirituality and mindfulness for many years, having studied both eastern and western spiritual disciplines. At their core, most religions and spiritual traditions (as well as classic philosophies) share a common theme: Know Thyself. From this place of knowing, right choices and decisions come more easily.
I see my role as a therapist as that of a mirror. I reflect what I hear and see back to my clients, so they are able to see their lives more clearly, without distortion that comes from emotions, fears and old programming. With clear vision, they are able to find solutions within their reach. If you feel my approach is aligned with your needs, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 786.548.2770.
