Diabetes Mental Health

I work with clients who have diabetes and their families; helping them come to terms with their diabetes and deal with it in a healthier way; allowing them to live without being inhibited by diabetes emotionally or physically.

About Me

Having lived with diabetes since the age of two, I have been through childhood, making friends, school, college, dating, marriage, pregnancy, birth, postpartum and parenting, with type 1 diabetes.  


Over time, I have seen the value of support and talking about my Diabetes with someone who really “gets it;” someone who understands the ever-present stress of A1C’s, Highs, Lows, Insulin Pumps, CGMs. I became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker to be that someone to support others. 


I have been a Social Worker for 8 years working with a variety of different people dealing with a wide range of experiences. Starting with an internship in the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes, and continuing on to offer clinical therapy and host support groups, I have had the opportunity to work with many people struggling with Living With Diabetes over time. I specialize in working with anxiety through CBT, DBT and “rewiring the anxious brain” as well as solution focused therapy.
