Dr B's Background





I grew up in Minnesota (yes, sometimes that accent still surfaces), and always wanted to be a nurse. I went to college in St. Paul, at a small liberal arts campus for women, and quickly discovered in nurses training that I talked far too much to be an efficient health care worker. I wanted to stay in each patient's hospital room and find out more about their story, and their support system, and their family history, and what was going to happen to them once they were discharged. My supervising preceptors were frequently pushing me along, and telling me to pick up the pace. Even with a delay in graduation, I knew that psychology was a much better career for me. I left the great white north after earning my bachelors degree in psychology, and I moved to Denver. I earned a masters degree and a doctorate degree from the University of Denver, and I have advanced training in treating individuals with a variety of life challenges. I enjoy the richness of working with people from all walks of life. I am licensed in the state of Colorado as a clinical psychologist and have been in private practice since 2006.


Aside from working full time during internship on the east coast at Virginia Commonwealth University and Medical Center, I have worked here in the centennial state for over two decades. I love Colorado and don't see myself moving. My husband (who is also a psychologist) and I live in the north metro with our twin girls. I love to be outside, and we camp, hike, and garden as much as we can. I love to read when I have time, and am frequently reviewing the latest research and new breakthroughs in psychology. I love to experiment in the kitchen with new recipes, and my stint in nursing lends to a belief in fueling our minds/bodies with good food and healthy nutrition.
