Having scaled a few mountains of her own, Darcie understands that life is hard. She also understands that it takes courage to attend therapy and dedication to see it through. Believing we're never meant to go it alone, she'll gently guide and walk alongside you as you work through issues, such as relationship problems, traumatic events, abuse, or hurts from the past, or to address specific goals. Together you'll work on strategies that allow you to address the root causes of your difficulties and build meaningful solutions.
Darcie's therapeutic orientation is eclectic psychotherapy. For each client, she selects what is valid or useful from all available theories, methods, and practices, matching suitable clinical methods to a client's needs. She often utilizes a person-centered, strengths-based, solution-focused, trauma-informed, cognitive behavioral approach. Those wishing to incorporate their spiritual beliefs into the counseling process will find Darice to be a good fit as she is faith friendly, too.
Darcie holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Northern Colorado (UNC), a Master’s degree in Counseling, Educational, and Developmental Psychology from Eastern Washington University, and an Educational Specialist degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from UNC. She's certified at the graduate level in Health Services Administration and is an Animal Assisted Therapy Specialist. Her experience includes working in K-12 schools, a university, a community college, community mental health clinics, domestic violence and homeless shelters, non-profits, churches, private practice, a psychiatric hospital, and three of northern Colorado’s medical hospitals. She's devoted to empowering people of all ages to find healing and wholeness.
When not working, you’ll find Darcie adventuring in the mountains with her family, dancing with her dog in the kitchen, at the gym, or with her nose in a book, and enjoying coffee and dark chocolate—not necessarily in that order.
