Meet our team of therapists! Our therapists have received Master's degrees in Clinical Psychology and are receiving supervision from licensed providers while they pursue their doctorate degrees. They are skilled at providing psychotherapy for a variety of problems, and also can complete psychological assessments to address and understand many diagnoses and difficulties. They continually support each other within the clinic as well as receive rich, high-quality supervision from our supervisors and director of the Ardent Grove Clinic.
Kelly is currently working towards her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology. She obtained her BA in Psychology, with a minor in Spanish and International Relations, from American University in Washington DC.
I was drawn to psychology because of the many rich possibilities to connect with and empower others. My background in international relations fostered in me an appreciation for each individual’s unique context and the way their constellation of life experiences has contributed to their current situation. Holding the emotional space and working with my clients through important growth is such a powerful and rewarding shared experience.
I am passionate about the high quality, affordable, and most importantly accessible care offered at Ardent Grove. The incredible professional team at Ardent Grove prioritizes a community dedicated to well-being and growth for everyone, both our clients and ourselves.
I love working with individuals who are open and ready for self-exploration. Being curious about what values drive them and what makes life meaningful is an important part of this process, as well as coming into contact with the challenges and barriers to living in this way.
I have extensive experience with general psychotherapy, specializing in relational difficulties, trauma, mood disorders (anxiety and depression), and OCD. I have varied experience with adolescents, teens, and adults. I’m able to be creative with my clinical approach to meet my client where they are in their journey.
Kait will receive her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the Graduate School of Professional Psychology in the Summer of 2020. She will then continue to pursue her doctorate. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Colorado Christian University in 2018.
I have always been inspired by the process of healing and growth that therapy can foster. I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to experience that healing first-hand. I work from a relational perspective, which just means I believe that the relationship can be a primary avenue for growth and healing. I love to see my clients become more comfortable living as who they authentically are!
The Ardent Grove Foundation provides a unique opportunity for me to work with a wide variety of clients—from adolescents and adults to couples and families. I am inspired by the opportunities that Ardent Grove Foundation provides for clients to receive high-quality mental health care in an affordable and comfortable setting. I feel deeply connected and passionate about the mission of outreach and healing that Ardent Grove promotes within the Denver community.
My ideal client is someone who comes into therapy eager to work! I love when clients are curious about themselves and are truly focused on applying tools or concepts they learn about themselves to better their lives and relationships.
I have specialized training and clinical hours working in military psychology alongside veterans and individuals who have severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI). This has bolstered my ability to work with a wide variety of problems that clients may be experiencing. Finally, I have experience working with both mood disorders and substance use.
Kristi is working towards her Master’s and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Denver’s
Graduate School of Professional Psychology. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from
Texas A&M University in 2017.
I believe the therapeutic relationship is powerful and truly beautiful. I feel honored that
clients allow me to be a part of their journey and work with them to process their trauma, pain and
grief. To understand someone’s pain, to celebrate their victories, and to see them grow as agents of
change in their life is a remarkable experience and I feel blessed to be a part of it. Often, individuals who
have experienced trauma may not be aware of their personal strengths. As a clinician, I have found that
working with clients to help them identify and bring their strengths to action fuels my love and passion
Prior to attending graduate school, I worked as a case manager at a local community mental health
agency in Texas. As a caseworker, I grew to understand the importance of providing treatment to those
who likely need it most and do not have access to these resources. Ardent Grove’s mission of bringing
high-quality mental health care treatment at a lower cost bridges the gap between privilege and what
should be fair access to resources.
My ideal client is someone who is willing to work in a collaborative manner, whether it be walking a path
of self-discovery, reducing suffering, or accomplishing goals.
I have experience working with individuals with severe and persistent mental illness, traumatic
backgrounds, as well as providing psychological assessments. I have a passion for working with military
members, veterans and their families. I enjoy working with adults, couples, and families.
Einav is originally from Israel and moved to Boulder, CO to complete her B.A. in Psychology at Naropa University, focusing on Somatic Psychology. She is currently working toward her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology.
I have been passionate about therapy and working as a psychologist for as long as I can remember. I find the experience of witnessing my clients heal, grow, and discover who they are to be an honor and privilege. It fulfills me to be able to support people in their journey in life and help them become more accepting of themselves.
I am excited to be working at the Ardent Grove Foundation because I believe in their mission and want to be able to provide trauma-informed therapeutic care to anyone in the community that is interested, especially if the cost is a barrier.
The ideal client to me is a person who is interested and invested in their personal journey and exploration; in other words, someone who wants to come in and do the work. My approach to therapy is to work collaboratively and respectfully with my clients to identify their goals, become aware of patterns and support them in living a more fulfilling life.
I work with individuals who have experienced trauma, and who struggle with substance use and other addictive behaviors. I believe that my ability to work in a non-judgmental way is reflected in my individualistic approach to each client.
