David - 200px edge fade(1)As counseling and psychotherapy is about the relationship between you and your therapist, allow me to briefly share about who I am.

I believe that as the client, you have done all that you know how to resolve troubling siutations and are currently using the best skills you have. Perhaps you have come to recognize that it is time to replace those skills with more effective ones, and so I applaud you for the courage to visit this website.

My background includes working with both adults and adolescents who are struggling with recovering from trauma, abuse, and family dysfunction as well as with those who are seeking a guide to assist them through a tough stage. I have specialized training in couples/marriage counseling through my masters degree program, with a post-masters' certificate in sex therapy.   I believe that with the support and guidance of a trusted therapist, we experience the safety needed to move out of our zones of familiarity and allow ourselves to discover and incorporate empowered ways to address long-standing issues in our lives.

I have a rich wealth of multi-cultural experience gained from living in several countries outside the U.S. This allows me to be an outside-the-box thinker as well as relate to people from various walks of life, ethnic backgrounds, and religous affiliations. I regularly engage in my own meditation and yoga practices, but do not ascribe to any one philosophy or relgious tradition. I hold a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Colorado at Denver which included an internship with Noeticus Counseling Center.  I have also completed a post-masters certification in Clinical Sex Therapy at the Colorado School for Family Therapy .

As for my work with individuals, couples, and families, I am constantly inspired by the courage and resiliency of those whose life stories are marked with both tragedy and lack of support. It is with great anticipation for the rewarding work we can do together that I look forward to meeting you.

My resume with organizational development is largely focused on helping organizations and faith communities.  I have a significant experience working with non-profit organizations and have used training in management/leadership styles as well as facilitation techniques for helping teams and organizations move forward.  I have directed state-wide initiatives as well as local community based projects with successful outcomes.  All of my work has sought to unleash the potential of functional teams and how individuals who are empowered contribute to a successful organizational output.
