"Maybe you're feeling stuck. Maybe you are seeking answers but not able to see through the darkness. Maybe peace feels impossible. Maybe you're questioning who you are or going through a life transition. Maybe it's your relationship or parenting or past hurts. This life experience is filled with highs, lows, and in-between moments. At times, we all want someone to join in our journey and walk alongside us so we can feel supported. I am here to meet you where you are in your life right now. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe that all of life is relational, whether that is within or outside with family, friends, society."

"There lies within you a deep well of courage and strength, far greater than you can even imagine. We all have times of struggle, pain, and confusion in our lives- sometimes it happens all of a sudden and turns our world upside down, sometimes it is accumulated in layer upon layer and we wonder if it's even possible to get to a place of thriving when surviving is all we can remember ever knowing how to do. Sometimes life seems to be okay - pretty good even - but you have decided that you want more than just "okay"."

"Therapy, as I have practiced it for over 20 years, involves helping a client develop a new clarity about their life and its context. Some aspects of their life to explore are: their thoughts, feelings, values, concerns about others, and their concerns about themselves. Once a new clarity about their life is achieved, new solutions to their dilemmas will evolve. I certainly believe that clients are individuals, but I also know that they are connected to larger systems. My extensive knowledge of Individual and Family Systems allows me to work successfully with individuals, couples, and entire families."
