My Story

My Story


When I’m asked about my background, I often describe how my love of activity, of challenge, and of sport were the vehicle for my own personal growth and healing. These days, as a therapist and counselor, I bring that same passion and commitment to working with my clients.

I raced bicycles professionally at both national and international levels for many years and then moved to long distance triathlons, where I spent my final “pro” years. . This brought me many top honors, podium steps, and even a national title—all for which I am so grateful. However, I soon came to realize that no “gold medal” could fill a void that was on my inside and thus I began my own healing process. In 2013 I started the transition from full-time athlete to full-time counselor and coach. Through my racing career, I came to identify with and confront many of my own personal obstacles. Although I do still participate in some competitions, my real love and passion lies in helping others. I believe each and every one of us has the right to live a happy, free, and vibrant life.

To that I am committed.

Mostly these days I spend my free time running (hiking or walking) in the mountains near my hometown of Durango or in the winter, exploring the beautiful high sonoran desert in Arizona-a more recent passion. I have no problem these days slowing down to work in my garden, or on my latest oil painting project. My husband and I love to cook meals together and do some exploring in our little motorhome. We are proud parents to our two fur babies: Lucky and Nellie.
