Welcome to Archway Counseling and Consulting!

You have started a rewarding journey.  I believe that counseling is a powerful way to improve a person's life.  Personally, I have benefited from working with my own counselor.  The insight and support from the counselors that I have worked with at various periods in my life have been invaluable. 

As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), and a Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC), in the State of Colorado. I work with two major goals in mind.

1) Reduce pain and distress
2) Increase personal strength, resilience, and wellness.

In order to achieve these general goals in a specific way for each client, I help clients understand their personal values and how they relate to their interactions with themselves and with others.  The relationship with the self is crucial and sets the stage for interactions with others.  Clients are empowered when they understand the complex connections between thoughts, behaviors, somatic or physical reactions, and their emotions.

I work with people from a variety of backgrounds and needs. I help people to navigate through the pain and mixed emotions of grief, trauma, addiction and process addiction, relationship difficulties, effects of racism and homophobia, depression, anxiety, and the stress and difficulties of life. 

I use a variety of modalities to address the totality of the person, including: 

⦁ Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).  
⦁ Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
⦁ Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)
⦁ Person-centered therapy
⦁ Motivational Interviewing (MI)

The interventions from these and other therapies help clients understand themselves and their interactions with others in a more nuanced manner. I teach skills to clients to help them improve their relationships with self and with others.

I provide teletherapy counseling services via a HIPAA compliant and secure platform. This ensures increased confidentiality and flexibility in scheduling.

In order to understand your situation and answer any questions that you might have, I offer a FREE and CONFIDENTIAL 15-minute consultation for all potential clients. Call or email me today to set up this complimentary consultation.

I look forward to meeting with you and helping you identify and achieve your life goals.
