Providing Counseling and Psychotherapy in the Fort Collins, CO area

Couples/Family/Individual Counseling, Grief and loss, Depression, Anxiety, Sexual Assault/Abuse, Trauma, Transitional problems

Are you dealing with issues surrounding grief and loss? Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, difficulties with a past trauma, or struggling with relationship issues? Do you simply wish you had someone to talk to who is impartial and non-judgmental? Therapy is about finding the right “fit” with a therapist, and I pride myself in creating a comfortable environment in which to foster growth. Sometimes all we need is to have a place to talk things out before we can move forward and feel better. My goal is to help you get to that place.

I specialize in grief work, but I also do a lot of work with people who are struggling with difficult life transitions, people who have experienced past trauma, sexual assault survivors, college-age adults, young professionals, children, teens, families and couples. We all have areas of our lives we could improve on. My job is to help nurture that change and walk along the path with you.

I work collaboratively with you to help you gain a sense of control over your life. Whether you are looking for couples counseling, family therapy, or someone to talk to individually, I work hard to provide an environment that is free of judgment. Contact me to schedule an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you!

What is grief?

Grief is normal. Grief is complicated. Grief can be lonely, confusing, and disorienting. Initially, we may feel like we’re in a fog. Later, as we come out of the fog, we may feel profound sadness that can feel very physical. We may suffer from insomnia, low energy, lack of appetite (or an over-active appetite), anger, depression, anxiety… The list of potential side-effects of grief is long, and no two people grieve in the same way. There is no wrong way to grieve. Grief has no timeline. Grief is normal.

What is couples therapy?

Couples often get caught in cycles of fighting that activate our primitive behaviors of fight, flight and freeze. Couples therapy helps to identify how we are triggered (and how we are triggering each other) in relationships, and how we can relieve some of these reactive states in each other.

Couples often report that their experiences with PACT differ from other therapy experiences because PACT can be fun. Each person is able to learn about themselves and their partner in a way that is not possible with normal talk therapy. PACT allows couples to learn to soothe each other, even in the midst of an argument. This is a powerfully transformative type of therapy for many couples.

PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy) is a therapeutic modality that utilizes developmental neuroscience, arousal regulation, and attachment theory to inform that therapeutic process. It is an evidence-based modality that strives for secure attachment within couples.

PACT is a therapeutic modality that requires extensive post-graduate training to become a certified PACT clinician.

What is individual therapy?

According to, individual therapy is “a collaborative process between therapist and client that aims to facilitate change and improve quality of life.” In my office, individual therapy usually consists of a 50-minute session where we explore your target concern. Depending on what this concern is, therapy may consist mostly of talking and processing. Other concerns may be better treated with art therapy, EMDR, mindfulness, homework or worksheets, experiential activities, or any number of other therapeutic interventions. The beautiful thing about therapy is that the options are endless. Therapy is a multi-faceted experience that can be truly transformative.
