In therapy, clients will experience many ups and downs that lead to transformation.
These emotional experiences allow clients to regain a greater understanding of themselves so they’re able to return to their everyday lives with a greater sense of hope and fulfillment.
It is with the end in mind that we’ll work together to forge a way forward. From the first conversation, this process will begin to help you envision a future that is less difficult and more rewarding.
Therapy at WaterShed Counseling is different than what you might be imagining.
You are the most important person in the room.
Together we will create a plan for your healing. The planning and future thinking that we do will guide us in every meeting as our road map.
As a mother of 2 teenagers, I have had the privilege of watching my children blossom. I have also felt the anguish of seeing them hurting and wanting to help them succeed in everything they do, but feeling helpless and frustrated that my words were not enough to make them feel better.
As a wife, I have struggled with keeping a balance between my family’s needs and keeping myself on the list of priorities.
Life is full of ups and downs for all of us. (Any therapist who tells you that their life is perfect is not being honest with you.)
I think it is because we have struggles too, that a therapist can be a great source of help. I hear you – and may have a few ideas to help see you through the current concerns that you have.
I have spent the past 14 years as a Stephen Minister helping people in Boulder County to heal from a wide range of concerns. Grief and end of life issues, as well as parenting and the eternal questions of our existence, have been a part of my practice. I am not afraid to discuss issues of spirituality and anger at God for not making our lives “easy and perfect.”
The last three years have been even more challenging as I have added Graduate School to my plate. My Graduate training program included a year of working with couples on the campus of Denver Seminary and a year working at Mental Health Partners in Longmont and Boulder helping families with children and adolescents that needed guidance and extra care.
These experiences, I believe, make me uniquely qualified to help you. It will be my honor to walk along side you in your pain, and see you move into healing and wholeness!
I am looking forward to talking with you.
