My practice is limited to clinical, administrative, and regulatory consultation with mental health providers in Colorado.

I bring more than more than 20 years of public service in social work, law enforcement, and regulation of mental health professionals as well as 14 years in private clinical social work practice to assist you in making the best possible decisions for your clients. As the former Director of the Mental Health Licensing and Regulatory programs in Colorado, I managed five Governor appointed Boards representing the professions of Psychology, Social Work, Professional Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy, Unlicensed Psychotherapists and Colorado Addictions Counselors. I also served as an item-writer for the national clinical and advanced social work examinations for 11 years, served as a member of the Social Work National Examination Board and was appointed to the Colorado Parole Board by former Governor Bill Ritter. As Director of the mental health licensing programs, I worked closely with Board members and the Attorney General's Office in the resolution of grievances involving psychologists, clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, addictions counselors, and psychotherapists. This experience enhanced my collaborative skills to work with lawmakers, private and public mental health providers and their stakeholders in developing legislation, rules and policies concerning the practice of mental health care. I frequently addressed Legislative Committees, Professional Associations, and testified in Colorado Courts in matters pertaining to mental health standards, psychotherapy practice, and regulation standards for mental health providers.

For the past five years I have been a contributing faculty member at Walden University in the Barbara Solomon School of Social Work and currently provide consultation services for mental health providers in forensic, regulatory, and business management operations. Many of my former students are now licensed mental health providers and I regularly consult with them when they are faced with general or complex ethical or clinical issues in their practice.
