Hello and Welcome to Porchlight!
I am the founder and primary therapist of Porchlight Therapy and Addiction. I moved around a lot when I was young, spending my formative years in Chicago, go Cubs! I came out to Colorado for school in 2001 and decided to make it my home. I live in Boulder with my husband, two kids and Bernese Mountain Dog, Boomer. I enjoy the outdoor lifestyle that comes with living near the mountains like hiking, snowboarding, and attending music festivals.
My passion is working with college students and adults on a variety of issues ranging from relationships and life transitions to trauma and addiction. I have over ten years of experience working with Depression, Anxiety, Panic, Substance Abuse and Trauma issues. I believe it is an honor to be a part of someone’s road to recovery and I know that therapy is not an easy process. I believe it takes courage to ask for help and recognize the need for change. I want to empower my clients to take new, healthy risks that will challenge their deepest thoughts and core beliefs.
