Come to Durango!

I can proudly say I’ve called Durango Colorado home for twenty-one years! Often I’ll refer to my stomping ground as both Shangri La and Heaven on Earth.

Durango is uniquely nestled between the jagged San Juan mountains and the red rock four corners desert. The untamed Animas river flows right down between town. It is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and also continues to capture that small mountain town feel-without spoilage.

My office is located right on main street in the heart of Durango.

Although I can provide telehealth services to clients outside of Durango effectively, there is little that can replace meeting intimately face to face. Since my hometown is such a wonderful and popular place to visit I have created a special way of working with clients that do not live here but wish to visit called DURANGO INTENSIVES.


Durango Intensives

We start with a 90-minute initial session using Telehealth methods: phone or video. This allows me to get to know you and your specific areas of focus for our work. I charge my usual session rate.

From there, we decide on how many in-person sessions we will do within your vacation time frame.

Those sessions are discounted to only fifty dollars per session. It is best to have a day or two in between the session for processing, settling, and some time to play or enjoy the area.

I also offer the option to incorporate a light hiking or walking session.

After your visit, we do a follow-up session using Telehealth methods, at the discounted rate. From that place, we determine to either continue to work remotely, pause on our work, or I can help transition you to a local therapist in your area.

A typical Durango Intensive schedule would look something like this:

Week 1: Initial 90 minute session via Zoom

Week 2: Durango Vacation (7 days)

  • Day 1: 60 minute office session
  • Day 2: Off — enjoy the area
  • Day 3: 60 minute office session
  • Day 4 & 5: Off — enjoy the area
  • Day 6: 90 minute hiking session and wrap up
  • Day 7: Departure

Week 3: Final 60 minute session

All of this can be tailored to meet your vacation needs. I feel it is hugely important and in alignment with the therapeutic process that there is equal time to enjoy, relax, and experience what this area has to offer.

The beauty of nature in Durango is soothing and supportive. It  helps heal.

For ethical reasons, I cannot offer lodging discounts or partnerships. Currently, as a licensed professional counselor in the state of Colorado, I can only work with those who claim Colorado as their primary residence.
