WHO WE ARE
Our group practice consists of mental health providers dedicated to serving families of young children.
Co-Founder, Licensed Clinical Social Worker
I have been in the human services field since completing my Masters of Social Work from University of Denver in 1996. While I have worked in a number of different settings and agencies, I have always come back to my love of children and my passion for helping them become their best selves.
I specialize in Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health, which includes lots of social and emotional development and support, as well as coaching for parents and caregivers. I utilize play therapy as the primary tool for connecting with children and allowing them an avenue to express themselves. I am also trained in EMDR with additional training on healing early developmental trauma for children.

Co-Founder, Child & Family Therapist
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I received my graduate degrees from Colorado State University in Marriage and Family Therapy and Applied Developmental Science. Since then, I have focused my work on learning as much as I can about infants, children, their families, and how to best support them.
In working with clients, my first step is to build a trusting and respectful relationship. With children, this often includes using play as a way to connect with children and learn about how they view the world. I also work closely with parents, recognizing the pivotal role theiy play in their child's growth and healing. When working with individual adults, treatment typically involves discussing the impact of current and past stressors, identifying areas of strength, and building resources for self-care and emotion regulation.
Circle of Security: Parenting
Licensed Social Worker
I received my graduate degree in social work from Colorado State University. My social work background offers me a broad perspective of the concerns that clients bring to therapy and an appreciation for how these concerns are impacted on individual, family, community, and societal levels. I combine a variety of theories and perspectives to best support the unique goals of each client, including trauma-informed therapy and mindfulness.
Reaching out for support takes courage and vulnerability, and I feel privileged to work alongside each client I meet. I believe that supporting clients always begins by building a safe, respectful, and
genuinely caring relationship. From this foundation, we can work together to build upon clients’ strengths and work towards meaningful change.
