Timi is a Licensed Professional Counselor who joined the Envision Counseling Clinic team in June of 2015. She received her Master of Arts in Counseling from Colorado Christian University. Before becoming a therapist Timi worked in the fitness industry for over twenty years. She has particular expertise in working with people who’ve experienced trauma. Trauma is a wide umbrella: post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, addictions, sexual and relationship issues are just some of the disorders hiding beneath it. Our body and mind use amazingly complex and creative ways to cope with trauma and distressing events. Some of the same defenses and processes that we originally developed to help deal with the sources of our pain end up blocking us from reaching a place of greater contentment and joy. Timi is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), which research supports as one of the most effective therapies in resolving past trauma.
Her Christian faith is an important part of who she is and what she brings to the clients she works with. It informs how she views mental, emotional and spiritual health. Having a safe place to share the deep, personal things in our lives that have been weighing us down can feel like unpacking a huge burden. Effective and lasting work in the counseling process is not easy, but it reaps rich rewards.
