I am a counselor who gets people outside to get them feeling better.
we’ll work together in an outdoor environment to address anxiety, depression, stress, quality of life, identity, and other struggles we face in a busy, demanding world.
Imagine what your life might look like if your challenges weren’t holding you back.
When we do therapy outside, we’re engaging with the natural world that we’re meant to be a part of, and we’re re-connecting to movement, fresh air, and the environment that nourishes us. There is no “good” or “bad” in nature - it just is. What happens, happens. Thus, it is also a place of non-judgement (a great model for us to learn from).
Therapy is a conversation, and acknowledgement of your lived experience and wisdom. Therapy is permission to be yourself, defining your own relationship with your values, connections, motivations, influences, and community. Therapy is not advice, “analyzing” you, or judgment.
are an individual, couple, or even family looking for things to be different. You're looking for a fresh approach to the problems that you’re experiencing, and maybe you’ve even tried therapy before but felt like it just wasn’t that helpful.
You want something to change, but maybe you’re not quite sure what, or where to start. Maybe you’ve had a relationship with anxiety and depression for a long time, and want to move away from their influence on your life. Perhaps you’re feeling the cultural and societal pressures of being a certain age, trying to separate what you want versus what other people want for you, or working on your familial relationships.
It might be that you just moved to Denver and are looking support in this life transition, or another one - like marriage, getting out of a relationship, a new career, and so on.
Whatever it may be - Trailhead can help you define yourself, your goals, and your trail forward.

am not a blank slate. I’m a human being who cares deeply about community, wellness, relationships, and the human experience. I am not an expert on your life; but I do have the knowledge, training, and background to witness your experience and guide you in finding a trail that feels good to you. I can help you find meaning in your stories, create change, and experience the world in a new way.
Therapy looks like…
a walk in the park, or a conversation under the trees. We might stop for a moment of mindfulness and sensory awareness, or do a walking meditation. We’ll begin by checking in on what has your attention and how you’d like to use your time. Maybe it’s something that’s been on your mind during the week, or we’ll pick up where we left off in our last conversation.
We’ll focus on your priorities and identity in the context of your relationship with the world around you, and how you want to show up in that world.
