“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
– Anais Nin
Have you been through a major change in your life?
It could be a death, loss, or another huge life event.
You are starting to question and re-evaluate your priorities.
You are thinking about what really matters in your life.
You want to figure out where you now fit in this new world.
You may feel lost and exhausted.
You want to make sense of it all. You long for more joy and meaning in your life. You are ready to shine the light on yourself and focus on YOUR wants and needs!
Even though you need support, you’re not sure where to turn or what to do to make things better. I can offer this guidance, help, and support.
These are the areas in which I can offer support, help and guidance:
LIFE DIRECTION & LIFE TRANSITIONS COUNSELING
You can’t go back to what was, and you don’t know what’s coming next. This period has been described as a liminal time. This in-between time is when transformation can take place. It offers you a chance to re-evaluate and reflect on your priorities.
Your priorities may include your…
- Family, Friend, and Work Relationships
- Happiness and Peace
This re-evaluation of your priorities can lead to some of our important work in therapy.
Re-evaluating your priorities helps you:
- Find More Meaning In Your Life
- Look At Your Identity and Relationships
- Create Enhanced Self-Care
Therapy offers you a place and time to slow down so that you can figure out…
- What is needed
- What really matters
- What is next for you in your life
Some examples of life transitions include:
- Empty Nest
- Age Milestones
- Job Changes
- Dealing with an Illness
- Graduating College
- Marriage or New Relationship
- Birth of a Child
- Aging Parents
For more information, please check out the Life Direction & Life Transitions Counseling page.
Have the ways people responded to your grief caused you to shut down and not share your feelings? You may not have received the support you need and deserve from others. Many people are uncomfortable around grief even when they care about you.
Grief is meant to be witnessed by another! We are not meant to grieve alone.
Therapy offers you a safe and validating space where you can share what this loss means to you or discover what it means to you.
Your grief and loss may include:
- The Death of Someone in Your Life
- A Long-Ago Loss
- Your Illness or The Illness of a Loved One
- Pandemic Related Grief
- Loss of a Soul Pet
For more information, please check out the Grief Counseling and Therapy page.

Reach out for a free 20-30-minute video or phone initial consultation! During the consult, you can share a little bit about what’s bringing you to counseling. I’ll answer any questions you may have about therapy.
This consult is an opportunity to decide if I’m the right therapist for you. If not, I can refer you to another clinician in my network. If we are a good fit, then we’ll go ahead and get started. I want to make sure that you get the best care possible!

Hi, I’m Hope.
I believe that you deserve a therapist with whom you connect! It’s also important that your therapist has experience supporting clients with your challenges and experiences.
That’s why I created a free 20-30-minute consultation. This free consult is an opportunity to see if we are a good fit. Schedule here.
There is hope, and I am here to help you find it during this time of change and growth.
I’m a licensed psychotherapist and Certified Grief Informed Professional with over two decades of experience providing counseling support to clients.
My therapy practice is based in Longmont, Colorado. However, I work with residents of Colorado and Florida through my online counseling services.
Together, let’s create your authentic, empowered, and meaningful life!
I really like this quote about being a therapist. We do not live perfect lives. We are not all-knowing. We are not better than our clients.
Our experiences as therapists have given us the privilege of accompanying many people on their life journeys. This has created a different perspective on life and the possibilities of healing, survival and personal growth.
