If you are looking for a qualified, experienced, licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in CO (with teletherapy for clients in CO and WY) who specializes in working with individuals, couples, families, and groups, please contact me.

My education is varied and highly specialized. I am a first generation college graduate who finished a bachelor's degree in Psychology at North Carolina State University in 1991. I got my first master's degree in Sociology in 1999 from George Mason University. I earned a second master's degree and a Ph.D. in Marriage & Family Therapy from Virginia Tech. My clinical internships were at Inova Kellar Center, the Family Therapy Center in Blacksburg, VA, Vanguard Services Unlimited (now Phoenix House), and Virginia Tech's Center for Family Services.

I am a former tenured associate professor in Human Development & Family Studies with a specialty in Marriage & Family Therapy where I trained graduate students to become outstanding therapists. Many of those former students are now practicing across the US, or they went on to get their PhDs and are now working in academic settings. I decided after many exciting experiences as a professor to follow my former students into private practice so I could focus all of my time and energy on helping individuals, couples, and families with grief, loss, and trauma. 

I am the Past President of the Colorado Association of Marriage & Family Therapy. I then become the Chair of the Council of Division Presidents for the American Association of Marriage & Family Therapy, followed by being appointed as a Director on their Board of Directors. This matters to you and your family because it shows I am committed to ongoing professional development and advancing my profession. I strive for excellence in my work, and you deserve that in a therapist.
