My Story

I’m a Colorado native who loves the outdoors, spending time with my family, being active, and reading. I’ve always been curious about people’s stories and how we make meaning out of our experiences. Growing up, my two loves were school and sports. I was perfectionistic and always striving to improve – which led to the feeling that no matter how hard I tried, nothing was ever good enough. Eventually, I felt like I wasn’t good enough. These feelings of shame, among other things, led to my own struggle with an eating disorder, depression, and anxiety for many years. I’ve been in recovery for over 15 years now and as a recovered professional, I am passionate about supporting others in finding recovery.

I earned my master’s degree in counseling from the University of Colorado Denver and started my private practice in 2011. I am President of the Denver Metro Chapter of iaedp (International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals) and teach master’s level counseling courses at The University of Colorado Denver. I also provide clinical supervision and professional consultation services through my private practice. Below, you’ll find more information about my education, training, and community involvement.
