MY BACKGROUND

I completed my undergraduate degree in Fine Arts at Metropolitan State University and my Masters of Counseling at Regis University.  I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate, which means I am pursuing the highest level of certification for counselors in the state of Colorado. 

I've followed my passion for fostering healthy relationships by pursuing extensive training in the areas of EMDR, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), mindfulness, attachment, and trauma. Along my journey I have provided counseling to individuals and groups at Noeticus Counseling Center and Training Institute in Denver, Colorado and in private practice.

 
“...Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. 
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? 
Actually, who are you not to be? 
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. 
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. 
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

-Marianne Williamson, ‘A Return To Love’ (1992)
