How Can I Help You Create a Life that Feels Intentional and Purpose-Driven?
Picking someone to work with, open up to, and explore with is not an easy task. A Google search provides multiple options, and sometimes it's not clear what is best for you. For a quick reference for differences in providers, please see below.
I am a licensed psychologist and faculty member at the University of Denver's Graduate School of Professional Psychology. I have worked in the Denver Metro area for several years, as well as New York, Boston, and Los Angeles. During my years of clinical experience, I came to realize that traditional models of therapy were less efficient than I or my clients wanted them to be. I became focused on finding methods of collaborating with clients to help them quickly recognize their patterns, make sense of the pattern's origins, and re-write the stories that maintain them. The most important part in this process is working together to identify where you want to shift your way of being to create a life of joy, fulfillment and purpose.
My areas of expertise include trauma, addiction, and self-actualization. As the Director of the Substance Use Disorder Specialty, I train graduate students in the neurobiology of trauma and attachment, and how this becomes disorders of self-regulation (like addiction). I also serve as a clinical supervisor for students seeing their own clients. My research interests include the use of psychedelic substances as a valid treatment for mental health concerns, as well as personal growth and enhancement.
