Meet the Providers
I am originally from New York, but have liked in the mountains of Colorado for the past 20 years. I enjoy all activities that involve being outdoors. I am an avid hiker and love to travel, but cycling is my passion.
I received my medical license from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine and did my residency at Michigan State University. I am board certified in generally psychiatry, working with adults only. I have worked in a variety of setting, including but not limited to: outpatient, inpatient, consultation, and telehealth.
I approach each patient from a wholistic perspective, encouraging patients to utilize a combination of physical exercise, healthy diets, and therapy to help maximize recovery.
I like to create a welcoming environment for clients using a casual approach that allows for a client to feel supported. There is no right way to do therapy and I want to collaborate with a client to customize therapy to their needs. I utilize psychoeducation, humor, and therapy techniques to help encourage clients to work towards their individual goals.
Therapy can be a space to talk to someone who's not part of your life, to have someone who will listen and who can offer a new perspective. Its about finding someone you connect with, and who can help you get unstuck or think in new ways. It's scary, but when it works its a great feeling - that's why I do it.
I believe humans are designed to grow, change, and be their best selves. Therapy allows for individuals for self-reflection and space to realize their potential in making change in their lives. I believe in using a collaborative approach, meeting the client where they are at, and giving them the resources/tools/confidence to become their own hero, self-advocate, and determinant of their own destiny in living the best possible.
I have lived in Colorado for a little over 2 years now. I have a passion for clinical operations and healthcare management. Being part of a team and organization that serves the community is my passion. There are many different pieces to a well-functioning clinic, and I am glad to be contributing with Family Care Center. I love to hang out with friends, go to thrift stores, and try new restaurants and coffee shops!
Perfect people do not exist. We all have our own struggles and hurdles throughout our life journey. There are times when the struggles are too much to handle on our own. Taking that first step to engage in the therapeutic process requires amazing strength and perseverance. You have the capability to be successful in your own life. Sometimes we just need a cheerleader to help us get there.
