Thank you for being interested in working with me.

I work from a model called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and I specialize in working with women on issues related to non-acute eating disorders, negative body image, sexual assault trauma, divorce, grief and major life transitions.

I especially love helping people answer the following questions:

  • If not this, what?
  • Should I stay or should I go?
  • What’s stopping me from living the life I want?
  • How do I get past the blocks that are keeping me stuck in the mud?
  • How can I get past this pain?
  • I know there’s a better life for me. What do I need to do to get there?
  • What would get to happen for me if I truly, madly and deeply loved myself and my body like my life depended on it?

If you have any of these questions, chances are you already have the answers. You just need someone to help gently coax them out of you. 

Seeking therapy is courageous. Doing the work that therapy requires is even more so. But by allowing yourself the space to understand who you are, where you come from, and where you’d truly like to go, you will – without question – create a new path you’re excited to walk.  

Knowing yourself is the most interesting and powerful thing you can do. And it’s a gift you deserve to give yourself.


I work with people in my home office in Boulder or in my downtown Louisville office.

Rates are $85 an hour or $115 for an hour and a half. I take cash, check or you can pay ahead of time via paypal. (I do not take insurance.)

The first 30 minutes are free so we can get to know each other and make sure we’re a good fit. If after 30 minutes, we’d like to continue working together, I’ll prorate the rest of the session. If it’s not a fit, I’ll do my best to offer a referral I believe would be a better one.

I currently see people in my home office on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. And in my Louisville office Thursday – Sunday. (I like to offer weekend hours whenever I can to accommodate my clients’ work schedules. 

If you’d like to schedule your first appointment, please email me or call 720-422-9067. 

I look forward to hearing from you.
