Anschutz Health Sciences Building1890 N Revere Ct Anschutz Health Sciences Bldg, Suite 4020, Aurora, CO 80045
Clinical Interest for Patients
My many clinical interests include treating obsessive compulsive disorder/obsessive compulsive personality disorder/obsessive compulsive traits, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, family systems and dynamics, health and wellness, and resiliency building/stress management. My therapeutic approach is mixed, focusing on the mind-body connection, building coping skills and life skills, providing support, and promoting overall well-being.
I believe in treating each client as a whole human being, focusing on both mental and physical health. My therapeutic style is eclectic, incorporating, ACT, CBT, DBT, ERP, EFFT, SE, CPT, IFS and more into my practice. As a clinician, it's important for me to show up authentically as an empathetic, even-tempered, driven person, who loves to laugh. By showing my authentic self, I feel it promotes self-acceptance in my clients. I strive to meet my clients where they are at and to give the best care that I can provide.

Interests & Activities
The top of a mountain is my happy place, particularly the top of one of Colorado's 14ers. In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my dog (whose name is Harrison Ford), hiking, snowshoeing, finding new ice cream spots in Denver, watching The Office, skiing, and dancing.
I am passionate about advocacy and prevention of eating disorders and other mental health issues. I work with a number of organizations and groups on reducing mental health stigma. I have also worked with the National Eating Disorders Association in planning national conferences, participating in walks and panels, and working as a helpline volunteer. I volunteer with the local chapter of the International OCD Foundation. Outside of mental health, I am dedicated to wilderness conservation. Each summer, I volunteer as a Peak Steward for the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, educating hikers on nature conservation, Leave No Trace, and how to recreate safely in the wilderness.
