I may be trained in a variety of evidence-based practices, but that's not the foundation of what makes therapy effective. The core of my therapeutic approach is building trusting relationships and meaningful connections around life experiences. Meeting people where they're at, without judgement or agenda and often with a lot of humor, is absolutely essential. My professional practice is all about keeping this process safe. It's my job to keep things simple and straight-forward. If you're curious, the following are a few of the evidence-based techniques I have been trained in and often use. Questions? Send me an email or give me a call at 970.948.0709. 



DBT is an evidence-based therapy for adults and adolescents that targets and helps improve the management of emotions, increase coping skills and strengthen relationships. DBT is effective for self-harming, suicidal thinking, depression, anxiety, and imbalance.

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (Emdr)

EMDR is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma/PTSD. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches. EMDR uses the brain and body's natural healing process to change the way a memory is stored and remembered, reducing the disturbance and lessening trauma responses.

RRT reduces or eliminates the painful emotional or behavioral impact of traumatic events, whether remembered or forgotten. Unlike other forms of trauma therapies, RRT does not require re-living past events or re-experiencing the trauma. 

COgnitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a short-term, goal-oriented therapy that takes an active approach to problem-solving and change. Its goals is to change thinking patterns which can ultimately impact emotions and behaviors.
