thumbnail_marcusI came to counseling out of a prior helping profession, teaching, and see many similarities between learning and therapy: among other things, both require that we reflect on our own internal experience in light of outside input, and ideally both lead to growth of our self-understanding and positive change in our relation to our world.

I was drawn to this work by my awareness that life can be difficult (sometimes heartbreakingly so) for everyone, and that it can be a challenge to navigate that difficulty alone.  Because we all struggle, we all need to lean on others at times.  Having leaned, I also wish to offer support to others.

My work at Rangeview involves supporting the counselors with administrative tasks, participating in groups, and helping with intake interviews.  I enjoy the opportunity to make connections between the practical nuts-and-bolts of therapy and what I am learning as a student at the University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work.
