CALL TODAY! (719) 331-6754
I am a Licensed Marriage, Family and Individual Therapist. I have been counseling over 20 years. I believe it is a calling on my life. I love what I do. I love people and believe each of us has positive potential. I love helping people find their path to growth.


I know how experience such as divorce, parenting problems, grief, and loss can affect your life. Your relationships suffer, your self-esteem gets buried, you completely lose sight of your identity. Through my own life experiences, I have learned how to overcome these issues also.

Now I spend my life helping others do the same. Inspired by parents who encouraged me to help people, watching them help hundreds of people themselves through ministry and being a Military Chaplin. After raising my own children, I earned a Masters Degree in Psychology from Chapman University and opened a private practice.

Through my travels within the United States and internationally. I have studied family dynamics in many cultures, experiencing new insights in problem-solving. As a mother of adopted children as well as biological, I understand the issues faced by adopted children as well as their parents.
