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!

We love Don!
Don has helped me achieve my goals little by little each week. He doesn't make me feel rushed or bad when I mess up. He takes the time to get to know me and my feelings and reactions and can even keep me in check. He has been a great support in times of crisis. He brings humor into learning to make the tough stuff easier to talk about. I have had several other counselors and he is the only one who has given me unconditional support. He knows when to be tough with you, and when to put things aside for another day. He is absolutely amazing at his job. I highly recommend him.
Don always has a happy energy about him and listens to your needs. He provides wonderful tools that fit our needs. If you are lucky enough to get him as your counselor you will not be disappointed. I am so grateful that we have found him!
