About

Welcome! I help my clients find hope and purpose, resolve current emotional struggles, and create an abundant, thriving life. Anxiety, depression, marital distress and disconnection; worries, confusion, exhaustion, hopelessness...these are a few of the concerns that bring clients into my office. Together, we can understand these problems and find solutions to create a life of joy and meaning. My training has been in mood disorders, marital therapy, substance use and codependency, and trauma. I love helping clients reach their goals - great mental health, successful relationships, healthy boundaries, you name it!
As a Christian, I utilize my spirituality to inform my therapeutic perspective and interventions, guiding clients to hope, healing and resiliency. Even within Christian circles, we often wear masks. I provide a safe, nonjudgmental space to be honest and feel accepted. If applicable to you, I incorporate your faith with evidence based therapeutic practices.
My major therapeutic modalities include cognitive behavioral, DBT, psychodynamic, and emotion-focused therapy. I work hard to create an environment of acceptance and HOPE. Let's use our time together to face life's challenges and work towards what you really want out of today and every day!
