Do you feel as if something is missing? Are you unable to fully connect to your authentic self but you're not quite sure what is holding you back? As human beings we all have a drive toward healing and wholeness, the degree to which we are aware of this drive and can listen to it informs our ability to show up completely with our own unique authenticity in the world. The first step to healing is awareness. With awareness comes the opportunity for acceptance and choice, and therefore, change. Though I specialize in working with survivors of sexual trauma and the transgender/gender non-conforming community, not everything has to be about trauma or gender. Sometimes when folx come to me after having spent years working on their trauma or transition the one most important question on their mind is "Does everything have to be about trauma/gender? Can't I just talk about the other stuff that's going on in my life that I need support around?" The answer, of course, is yes. When you get to that point you'll know that my physical and virtual offices are safe spaces for you to bring your full self. TRAUMA: Your trauma may have defined you for survival purposes, but it doesn't have to anymore. We can work together to identify your triggers, set up a self-care plan and resolve your traumatic memories so they no longer control your life. Some of my modalities include: EMDR, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, body-centered psychotherapy, and mindfulness-based interventions. GENDER: There is no one right way to experience your gender. When you are questioning your experience of gender the most important thing is an openness to be with whatever comes up, and hold the space for self-discovery. In most cases, I can write letters of support for various stages of transition as required by insurance companies, when requested and where appropriate. I serve all across the gender galaxy including, but certainly not limited to individuals who are transgender, genderqueer, non-binary, neutrois, cisgender, agender, and bigender. I am a strong proponent of the informed consent model of care. Transformational Psychotherapy is available throughout Colorado, in person at my Golden, CO office, or virtually. Mindful-Empowerment Coaching is available anywhere online. The world needs your authentic voice; not who you think you should be... but who you truly are.

As a transformational psychotherapist with trauma and gender specialities I work from an integrative, growth-centered model.
