Originally from the East Coast, I moved to Colorado nearly 13 years ago to pursue my education in the field of psychology and social work.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Colorado (License #9923212). I received my BA in psychology from the University of Colorado and my Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from the University of Denver.
This is a part of me, but these labels, these letters after my name don’t define me.
I’m a daughter, a sister, a friend, an athlete, a professional, an advocate, an inspirer. Oh and I’m also human.
And being human has allowed me the opportunity to have plenty of my own life experiences, work through my own life struggles, slowly (and painfully at times) learn to accept myself and the things in my life I was resistant to. I’m by no means perfect. I still have my own work to do, I have good days and bad days…but when all is said and done, what I know is this: I’ve learned to accept myself, I truly like the person I call “me” and I choose to really live and show up, each and every day.
I understand the courage it takes to face our unique demons, but I also know that coming out the other side is worth every ounce of pain along the way. I’d never wish to change my past experiences because I’ve learned from them, they’ve made me stronger and most importantly…they’ve made me, ME!
What do I believe…
I believe that every person deserves to live a life of health and happiness, regardless of your age, gender, religious beliefs, skin color or hair color. I believe that health consists of many components- including, but not limited to the mental, physical, spiritual aspects of a person’s life. That is why I am proud to house CORtherapy inside of the Denver Integrated Therapies (DIT) suite. At DIT, you not only get your mental health needs met, but we offer other complimentary services such as chiropractic care, massage therapy, acupuncture and functional, holistic medicine. If you choose, DIT can be your one stop shop, where you can be assured that YOUR needs are being taken care of at the highest regard. At Denver Integrated Therapies, we believe in “a truly integrated approach to a healthy lifestyle.”
