Growing up in Idaho I had an inborn love for nature and the world outside. I have also always had a deep appreciation for our innermost experiences; I’m fascinated and interested in people’s lives, perspectives, and emotional wellbeing. I have a lot of empathy and compassion for others. Something I have noticed throughout my life is the way people naturally confide in me. This is something I’ve grabbed onto that makes me feel like I’m fulfilling my purpose.
I knew I would end up working in a psychology-related profession, I just didn’t know what specifically. It was during the completion of my Master’s Degree in Social Work at Idaho State University that I discovered a strong pull towards the working dynamics of relationships. I knew I found my path forward in couples and family work and I haven’t looked back since.
I’m grateful for working at Colorado Center for Couples and Families (CCCF), because it lets me live out my passion in full force. CCCF has a commitment to helping people navigate the challenges of relationships. All of the therapists here use Emotionally Focused Therapy, which is the most effective and best researched method for working with couples and families. We take couples work very seriously and are always striving to get better and better in our approaches.
