Welcome! Ready to move forward?
I am trauma-based therapist who specializes in working with athletes to resolve traumatic stress, find emotional wellness, increase performance, and regain passion and motivation following difficult experiences.
For athletes, trauma can come from a number of experiences, including previous injuries, losses, challenging coaches, witness to injury in others, close calls in the backcountry, etc. Sometimes, we are able to process these experiences and cope with little difficulty. Other times, these experiences can affect us deeply in ways we do not expect. Often, it’s hard to talk about and even harder to ask for help.
We find ourselves stuck and unsure how to move forward.
- survived an accident
- suffered an injury
- experienced a loss
- witnessed a traumatic event, injury, or death
- are struggling with a lost sense of self
- or are experiencing blockages in your performance
I can help. Through a compassionate and collaborative approach, I integrate targeted and effective treatment modalities to help you heal. We will navigate it together.
Depression, anxiety, fear, avoidance, shame, helplessness, guilt, and even anger, are all normal emotional responses following a traumatic experience. These feelings can be powerful and isolating, and you don’t have to manage them alone.

WHY ALPINE PSYCHOTHERAPY?
As a climber and overall adventure-sports enthusiast, I have been in love with the the mountains and all they have to offer since I first moved to Boulder over 14 years ago. During this time, I have witnessed friends suffer life-altering injuries, heard of many deaths in our outdoor community, and have experienced more high-risk situations in the backcountry than I am comfortable with. I understand the challenges that athletes face, and the barriers to seeking help.
I began Alpine Psychotherapy as a way to integrate my personal passions with my clinical experience, so that I can help others in my community heal, from regaining emotional wellness to rediscovering their passions and increasing performance.
