Some of the treatment modalities I practice include: trauma informed, CBT, walk & talk therapy, play therapy, attachment based & mindfulness , .
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who enjoys working with children, adolescents, parents, and adult individuals. Life is hard, and we all experience stressors that cause us to fall out of sync with one another or ourselves. My goal is to help you, your child, or your family feel better equipped and empowered to cope with those stressors. EMDR is a wonderful modality I use during the treatment process to quicken the healing process. I also provide clinical supervision for associates accruing their hours.

I use techniques like mindfulness -based CBT, narrative therapy, and attachment theory to build a framework, but am eclectic in nature-- meaning I use the approach that best suits your needs and is tailored to you as an individual.
I believe that receiving therapy should no longer be taboo. Confiding in others and receiving professional help is something we all do in many facets of our life. Most of us see a doctor or go get our car fixed when we have issues with our physical health or a tire is loose, so why not see a therapist to help improve our mental health?

I utilize elements from cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness to help change thinking patterns.
You are only human. This means needing secure, safe attachments with others in order to thrive. You want freedom from anxiety, codependency, depression, or trauma. You're experiencing conflicts in your most important relationships. These problems often block us from feeling confident or thinking clearly. You may be out of energy trying to fix what's wrong and need a new perspective to resolve these difficulties.

I believe that all people have an innate healing capacity and through compassion, we can navigate to the other side of shame. I have worked extensively with issues of childhood and adult traumas and how these painful experiences have affected how we relate to ourselves and others. Sometimes, we can feel stuck or lost, or struggle with anxiety, depression, or relationship difficulties. Sometimes, there are big issues to grapple with. But our experience of breaking apart can be the ground for something new, not only an injury to survive. Therapy can help loosen the process of growth & the experience of being present to our own life.

“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall," Nelson Mandela. It is never fun to fall, yet it is something we all experience. If life has you in the midst of difficult challenges and you feel overwhelmed, know that you are not alone. Reaching out for support is an act of strength and courage, and is the first step in getting up again.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, (DBT), cognitive/ behavioral, focus on mindfulness /present awareness.
Welcome, if you have found yourself here, it means you are thinking about making some changes in your life. Making the decision to begin a journey of self discovery can be scary to say the least. May I share some of my thoughts with you. I believe in the, "Law of Correspondence", which states that what is going on in our outer world is nothing more than a reflection of what is going on in our inner world. As within, so without, as above, so below. It would be my honor, and privilege to help you discover your best self.
