About Us

About us

Glacier Psychology Services exists as a result of my work with children, adolescents and their families, where I have often felt “stuck” in a culture that fails to meet the mental health needs of our community. Treatment at Glacier focuses on overall health and well-being. We recognize and acknowledge the presence of mental illness, without giving it too much power. Individuals and families will learn to embrace all parts of themselves to form a more balanced view of themselves and the world. I chose the Glacier as the image of my practice for many reasons. Glaciers are strong, beautiful works of nature and can be quite powerful in creating movement and change. They are also not without flaws or imperfections. Glaciers are breathtaking structures, only partially visible at the surface. And yet, what lies below the water is just as magnificent when given the chance to be seen. Each individual is like a glacier: beautiful, imperfect and waiting to be fully seen.

I have been passionate about child and adolescent mental health from the moment I began my graduate studies. I am dedicated to my continuing growth as a clinical psychologist meeting the individualized needs of my clients. I have extensive training and experience working with children, adolescents, and adults across the lifespan. Combining clinical science, behavioral studies and everyday experiences to foster mental health is my ongoing commitment to the community.

what our Clients have to say about us

You have given me more faith in myself, more than I have ever had. You have allowed me to envision a future for myself that stretches beyond age 20
-CM
I wanted to thank you for making me comfortable and at home in treatment. You helped me make it my querencia. A querencia is the one place a bull feels protected and secure in a bull fight. Its like an invisible fortress, the only place they feel safe
-CG
I’ve never seen such a person genuinely look like they love what they do like I see in you. I’m impressed by your dedication to the multiple children that come to you.
