Resiliency and Growth is within your reach

Training and Consulting with Darlene 

Get to know me a bit more

Bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Addictions Counselor and Approved Clinical Supervisor

As a person who wears many hats, I am passionate about spreading healing and positive change. Along with my roles as a wife, mother, and social worker, I am also a dancer and community advocate. My passion is helping others reach their full potential and heal from past experiences. I believe that everyone has the ability to heal and grow, and it is my mission to pass along resiliency to the next generation.

As an adjunct professor of the Graduate School of Social Work at the University of Denver, I bring over 20 years of experience working in social services to the table. I have always been passionate about learning, and I believe knowledge is crucial to understand and address social issues. However, I also believe that it's human connectedness that really makes a difference. By building relationships with others, we can better understand their experiences and perspectives, and work together to create positive change in the world.

 Professor Brace is amazing. She does such a great job making everyone feel comfortable, not just in the class but also with the content. There are some really tough topics in this class and she did
so well at making sure we all understood the content and relate that to our own experiences.

- Jamie 

Very knowledgeable and passionate about what she presents, allows organic progression and presents information in a digestible manner. She is also very energetic and open to answering questions.

 She is kind and empathetic and so so knowledgeable about substance use interventions and holistic/alternative treatment methods. She embodies what I hope to be as a clinical social worker years down the road
