Where is your office?
The office is in downtown Colorado Springs, just south of Old North End and Colorado College. The name of the building is TheNextUs. It is a mix of shared workspaces and private office suites. I am on the second floor. I typically ask clients to sit in the second-floor lobby and text me when they arrive.

What are your hours?
How long are your sessions?
How much do you charge?
Individuals with insurance can expect to copay, which varies by policy. Please check with your carrier before you make your first appointment. I do have limited access and can check this information upon request.
Therapy is an investment in yourself, your family, and your well-being. Clients paying out of pocket can expect to pay the following:
Individual Sessions are $130. Couples sessions are $140.
A sliding scale may be available for clients in financial need.
Do you take insurance?
I only accept the following In-Network Plans: Aetna, Meritain Health, Optum, Oscar Health, UMR, UnitedHealthcare, and VA Community Care Network.
I process insurance through a third-party service called Headway. This service eases the burden of processing claims and paperwork. Clients must set up an account and upload their insurance information before our first visit.

What modalities do you use?
My practice is holistic in its foundation. I have learned from some of the best minds in Psychology and Spirituality. I operate under the premise that we have all the answers inside of us already. I want to help you learn how to look for and trust what you already have inside.
I assist clients in processing trauma with Mindfulness and Internal Family Systems. I also use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to treat depression and anxiety. I aim to help you learn enough about yourself that you no longer need therapy.
What's your professional training and experience?
I received a Bachelor of Arts in History and Philosophy from Arizona State University in 2012. I have over a decade of experience counseling soldiers, wounded warriors, and military families. In 2018, I started my clinical work for the Department of Veterans Affairs, where I worked with combat veterans.
I received my Master of Social Work degree in 2019 and my independent clinical licensure in 2022. I opened my Clinical Practice in August of 2022. I have over 10,000 hours of clinical and non-clinical counseling experience and am an expert in helping clients heal from past trauma.
What else must a client know to make the most out of working with you?
When will I know I am better?
You are getting better when you get a flat tire on the side of the road and can laugh about and enjoy your misfortune.
When we hurt, we take life way too seriously. I know a client has made progress when we can begin to laugh about things that used to be hard to discuss. When we start participating in small talk and laughing, it might be time to terminate or space out our sessions.
I am also starting a new therapy business where I whisper jokes to people with anxiety – I call it Calmedy.
