As a Licensed Professional Counselor since 1990, I counsel children, adults, couples and families in my private practice in Colorado Springs.  I added Calmness Creative to my title to describe my passion for creating calming experiences and calming auditory resources.  While my practice is generic in nature, and I keep it that way intentionally, I especially enjoy working with persons experiencing anxiety disorders, agoraphobia, panic attacks, OCD, and insomnia.  I am very experienced and effective with couples, adults coping with ADHD, working caregivers, and those dealing with grief and loss.

Hypnosis is a tool I use frequently to promote calmness and behavioral changes in a variety of situations including pre-surgical anxiety, childbirth, smoking cessation, and weight loss. I also use EMDR (learn more) as a means of helping people who have suffered trauma to make meaningful and lasting change in their lives.  My approach to counseling is "to do what works" and what works for one client may not work for the next.  My counseling tends to focus on the present and future as opposed to the past and focuses on finding solutions, brainstorming strategies and trying on new behaviors to help clients make the changes they desire.  Of course, sometimes we have to explore the past to get to where we want to be, but we don't have to stay in the past.

My ideal clients are those who come for counseling because they want to, not because they have to.  People who enjoy being my clients are those who value being spoken to honestly and appreciate being challenged to hear the hard things, who value a compassionate listener, who appreciate a calm, peaceful office setting and my calm, accepting presence.  My ideal clients demonstrate commitment to the counseling process by regular attendance, being timely to appointments, following through on homework assignments, and respecting our financial agreement.

We all face challenges as individuals, families, partners, parents, grown children, and siblings. I bring my life experience, my clinical experience, and most of all, my presence -- who I am as a person -- to be there for my clients at each session. I'd like to be present for YOU.
