My Story

I really appreciate Vicki’s expertise in helping me identify my constant anxiety as an HSP. This knowledge helped me immensely to navigate my daily life to curb my anxious feelings.
— client Kris K.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker [Colorado License #672] and have been practicing as a psychotherapist and social worker since 2003.  I had battled with depression for most of my life due to my own childhood loss and trauma.  I finally sought help and received treatment at the age of 37.  I would not be here or be the person I am now without the help I received from my own therapist.  

What happens to you does not matter: what you become through those experiences is all that is significant. This is the true meaning of life.
