I was born and raised near Chicago, and after attending the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I moved to Denver for graduate school. I have a bachelor’s in human development and family studies, and a Master of Social Work from the University of Denver. Additionally, I completed 4 years of coursework in marriage and family therapy from the Denver Family Institute. I consider myself very culturally diverse and enjoy learning about and experiencing new cultures and religions.
My specialties include working with individuals, couples and families. I particularly like working with geriatric patients who are experiencing life transitions. Another area I take special interest in is postpartum depression. I work as a team with our specialists, pharmacists and others to coordinate my patients' care. My goal is to provide the most appropriate care for my patients, so they aren't spending extra time or money to get the care they deserve. I am very mindful and present during the time with clients. I practice in a very honest, non-judgmental, empathic, educated manner.
Finding balance is something I am always striving for. I have two goofy dogs who keep me entertained. I love traveling, eating, spending time with friends, and sleeping. Since moving to Colorado, I have developed an interested in biking and climbing to push myself both mentally and physically.
