A Little Bit About Beverley
I was born and raised in Southern California and spent most of my summers in the U.S. Virgin Islands. After graduating from college, I returned to the VI and met my husband. We briefly lived in San Francisco before moving to Colorado to plant roots in the ‘small town’ of Golden, near the ‘big city’ of Denver.
I love my work as a therapist and know how important it is to ‘recharge’ when I can. My favorite way to do that is to spend time with family or friends, drinking a hot cup of tea or reading a good book. I can also be heard singing, almost anywhere - in the shower, driving in the car or walking around my home! Though I love the Colorado mountains, I am a beach girl at heart and find my way back to the ocean whenever I can.
Why I decided to pursue a career in Couples, Individual and Family Therapy
Like many of my colleagues, I’ve been interested in people and psychology for as long as I can remember. Though life originally took me in a different direction while pursuing my undergraduate degree, I found my way back to this meaningful work as my children became teenagers.
Throughout my life, I have experienced and witnessed the healing power of therapy in several different ways. Our family benefited from counseling when our son was struggling during his teenage years. Later, we experienced several deaths in our extended family within a short period of time, leading us to seek support to process so much simultaneous change and loss in a healthy way. It was through these personal experiences that I learned first hand how instrumental the relationship between a client and a therapist can be in facilitating healing and lasting change. These experiences solidified my desire to help others have similar positive experiences.
The relationships we have with the people we love most, have a profound impact on our happiness, health and ability to thrive. Life can make it hard to take care of those relationships. We need them to sustains us in times of joy and sorrow so it takes work to nurture them and keep them strong. I am passionate about helping couples and individuals deepen their connection with themselves and others.
