About Me

Being in a relationship can be one of the most uplifting and beautiful experiences we can have. But there are also times when our communication breakdown. When we lose trust and don't know if we can continue. This does not need to be the end of the conversation though. Together, we can begin the walk back toward understanding and connection. Sometime this takes time and each person may need to learn new ways to communicate and reconnect. We will work on this together. I will work with both of you through this process. Even the best relationships experiences times when things "just seem off." That does not mean that the relationship is over. Sometimes, these are the growing pains that bring us together.

I am a licensed professional counselor in Colorado with over 10 years professional experience helping people. I have successfully worked with Clients to address: Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Grief and Loss, Divorce, Parenting Challenges, Physical and Emotional Trauma, Family Conflict and Communication, Substance Use, etc.

I also have a lot of experience working with couples and families. This include building stronger communication and understanding for one another, which is essential for any healthy relationship.

My counseling style is supportive and goal oriented. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. Depending on my clients’ needs, I draw from diverse counseling techniques that can include: Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI), as well as psychodynamic therapy techniques. Every client is unique, so all counseling is individualized to meet their individual strengths and challenges.

At times, we all can find ourselves feeling isolated...alone...without understanding. It can be hard to reach out to someone and seek the support you need. There is hope, though. The support is there for you when you are ready.

I look forward to working with you!

Don is a great support to me. He values me which in turn is making me start to value myself again. Each time we have a session he is involved and detailed. He gives great advice which is easy to follow. He doesn't show any judgment about anything we discuss even when it makes me embarrassed. He has helped me find coping skills for my anxiety that I feel confident using in times of stress. He has been fantastic. I highly recommend him.
