Inclusive, supportive therapy for anxiety, chronic stress and trauma.
Emerald Lake Counseling was created to offer therapy and EMDR for the treatment of anxiety, chronic stress, and traumatic experiences. I celebrate and warmly welcome folks who are looking for support as they strengthen and heal relationships with themselves, loved ones, and community.
Compassionate, knowledgeable, encouraging, and patient counseling can make a difference in reaching your emotional health goals. I focus on research and evidence-based practices in the field of trauma therapy, anxiety, and LGBTQIA+ support.

Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
After a successful but somewhat unfulfilling corporate career, and upon reflection on important relationships in my life that felt one-sided, I started working with a therapist who taught me how to offer myself compassionate curiosity. This restored connection to myself changed my life in a lot of different ways, and it led me through in-depth graduate training, clinical supervision, and candidacy to become a licensed professional counselor.
Now, I enjoy working in a way that's deeply aligned with who I am- supporting others in overcoming difficult childhoods, struggles with mood, identity and personality, anxious or chronically stressful lives, and complex relational trauma.
I love learning and engaging with others dedicated to healing. I spend a lot of time reading and participating in workshops, lectures, and working one-on-one with my clients, and I balance that with brunching, hiking with my pup Duncan, and climbing rock walls all over Colorado and Utah.
