"Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."
I am currently working in the Colorado Springs area. I am a Certified Addiction Counselor One and a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado. I have a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology from University of Pacific in Forest Grove Oregon. I have over 20 years of experience in social services both as a clinician and as a supervisor for programs that address mental illness and substance abuse.
I have several years of experience working with youth around mental health issues, addictions, conflicts and issues transitioning to adulthood and life issues. I have consultation experience in designing programs to assist youth and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), ADHD, substances, and other conflicts. I also have extensive experience helping adults achieve success with substance abuse issues and reducing symptoms of depression, PTSD, and anxiety disorders. I am trained in the Prolonged Exposure methods to address anxiety issues and Combat Stress issues.
My previous clients have experienced great success in reducing the effects of once debilitating mental health and addiction issues by attending sessions and integrating the tools used in therapy. I take great pride in assisting clients reach the goals that they set forth in therapy and it is my goal to assist clients in achieving success as quickly as possible.
My hope is to reduce years and years of suffering by a client through addressing real problems with proved techniques. It is my hope that by addressing a clients goals using proved therapeutic techniques, a client may avoid a lifetime of need for pharmaceutical drugs, a history of severe legal and occupational consequences, episodes of suicidal behavior, stressful family conflict, and an inability to achieve life success.
