As an approved Internship site for CACREP accredited Universities, our mission is to offer our Graduate Student Interns a one year program in a private practice setting where they will be assigned to a mentor to work directly with them. This provides them with the opportunity to gain experience on how to be an integral member of the Mental Health Community as well as gaining unprecedented knowledge of how to have a successful private practice. Interns are well trained and provide competent supervised therapy for individuals, couples, families, and groups. They are able to offer these services at affordable rates.
You are taking the time to make mental health a priority, and that is something to be proud of. I look forward to walking beside you while you navigate life while working towards your goals and aspirations. I think about your problems from a holistic perspective because I believe that everyone contributes to the problem. As such, I encourage the whole family to join our sessions to get a better picture of how the problem started and is maintained. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming roadblocks along the way.
I believe the foundation of therapy is to develop a safe and trusting relationship. Therefore, I emphasize building rapport with clients and developing a relationship that is supportive and conducive to the healing process. You are resilient, and my job is to help you remember your strengths and worth.
I am a student at Syracuse University where I am completing my M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am passionate about the work I do to help individuals, children, adults, and families navigate anxiety, depression, family conflict and parent-child relationships.

I believe that everyone is the expert of their own experience. As a therapist, I am here to help you explore your experiences and achieve your goals in a way that makes sense to you, rather than solving your problems for you. I view counseling as a collaborative process in which we will work together to address the things in your life that are causing you discomfort and focus on the areas that you want to grow, or your goals and aspirations. It is my goal to provide you with a safe, comfortable, and non-judgmental environment to work through these things, while also tailoring the specifics of our work together to your unique needs.
As a graduate student intern at the University of Western States, my therapeutic approach is integrative, and primarily focused on developing a collaborative, genuine, positive, and empathetic relationship with my clients. I believe that people are good, trustworthy, and capable of directing their lives from within but often struggle when they lack a sense of meaning or develop ways of thinking that don't fit with their self-or world views. Seeking help is beyond brave, and I am both honored and excited at the opportunity to be alongside you throughout your journey!

In life there are inevitable challenges as well as great joys. I am interested in facilitating resilience through an integrative approach that primarily draws from strength-based cognitive behavioral therapy. How we think, act and feel work together in a feedback look that determines how good we feel. As a therapist, I listen for the entrenched patterns that exist on the surface (thoughts, behaviors) and what lies beneath the surface of the conscious mind as we confront challenges. I also incorporate a mindfulness approach and I am very tuned into the present moment content of the therapy process. Warmth, gentleness, directness and humor are the hallmarks of my styles.
I am a student at Adams State University where I am completing my M.A. in Counseling. I have an M.Ed and have over 15 years experience working with youth as a teacher and social worker. My focus is working with teenagers and adults. When I am not counseling, you will find me hiking, ice skating and spending time with my family.

“What happens if you know that there is nothing you can do to be better? When you’re freed from being out to improve yourself, your own nature will begin to take over.”
— Alan Watts
I love this quote: our inner self-critic constantly tells us that we’re dropping the ball,
doing the wrong thing, living the wrong life. But the hard truth is that we’re all doing the best we can with what we’ve been given. My approach is based on the belief that we all have the power to heal and find meaning in our lives — whether it comes from nature, spiritual practice, or simply our own selves — but sometimes we need help finding it. Ultimately, the path is up to you. You can consider me both a therapist and an advocate.
I’m a Clinical Mental Health Counseling graduate student at the College of William and Mary, with a certificate in Ecopsychology and currently completing another in Depth Psychology & Neo-Jungian Studies. I’m also a father of two, a writer, musician, and lover of the outdoors. I’m hoping the pup in my photo (Callie) will one day be my partner in animal-assisted therapy.
Please feel free to reach out and set up a free consultation to see if I’m the right fit. I look forward to hearing from you!

People are naturally inclined to strive for personal growth and fulfillment. As a counselor, I use a positive, empathetic, and non-judgmental approach to create an environment where you feel safe and supported in your counseling journey. I believe you know yourself best and that counseling is a collaborative process. We will work together to explore your experiences and emotions to facilitate a richer understanding of yourself and work towards achieving your goals. Deciding to reach out for support takes remarkable courage, and I am thrilled to be embarking on this journey with you.
I am a graduate student at Portland State University, completing my degree in marriage, couple and family counseling. I have several years of experience working with children in preschool programs. I work with children, adults and families.
