Holly specializes in helping clients who're struggling with symptoms of trauma, stress (acute, development, and/or chronic), anxiety, and depression. She is a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, with over 500-hours of training in a body-based approach to trauma resolution. She integrates this approach, along with other expressive and experience-based modalities, into a broadly humanistic, developmental and equity-oriented framework.

With a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Adler University, Holly was a university mental health counselor for 15 years in Chicago before moving to Denver in 2019. She's also worked in community-based and private-practice settings and, served as a high school counselor at Englewood High School.
