About Me

As a couples, individual, and family therapist, my mission in life is to help alleviate suffering and disconnection as well as create more safety, joy, and love in this world. To me, there is something magical about sharing in others’ worlds, connecting to a sense of humanity that we all share. I feel so grateful to be able to do this every day.

Before becoming a therapist, it was my life long dream, rooted from an aspiration to help others and an avid interest in psychology and relationships. I see this life as my true calling. In addition to being a therapist, I enjoy teaching courses, guest lecturing, and conducting research at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. I also love to stay involved in the community, and I am the founder of the Fort Collins EFT Community. Another interest of mine is writing; I am a writer for Psychology Today. I have been featured in various media outlets as a writer and/or expert. If you’d like more information on my science-backed and compassionate approach to couples, individual, and family therapy, you can learn more here.

In my free time, I love spending time with those close to me, being outside, being active, learning new things, and sometimes being very lazy. I do a lot of camping, biking, jogging, hiking, white water rafting, and shaking it out to live music. There are often headphones in my ears, because I adore audiobooks! I listen to all things psychology (especially mindfulness and relationships). Another hobby of mine is hula hooping, and I was even lucky enough to be featured on a TV show and America’s Got Talent. And then, with other free time, who doesn’t enjoy watching a little Netflix?!
