In addition to being a marriage counselor I have experience working with children, teens, and adults treating depression, family planning/treatment, grief/loss, and domestic violence .
Are you struggling with communication in your relationship or marriage and just need someone to help get things back on track? Or maybe you are considering getting married and need some additional support through this process. We are here to help. Sometimes our friends want to help but they are not equipped to give us a neutral perspective on our relationship. Seeking professional help can be a scary thing, but it may be exactly what you need for your relationship.

I have experience in treating dual-diagnosis substance abuse mental health, trauma, anxiety, depression, domestic violence , anger management, and more.
The basis of an ideal client in my lens does not have a select issue. Everyone has their own life challenges and emotional weight they carry with them. In the end, what I want for my clients is a common goal to be the best version of themselves they can be while being open-minded in facing tasks related to that goal. Whether it is an interpersonal relationship problem, anxiety, substance abuse , etc; the ultimate goal is to be better in comparison to yourself yesterday rather than someone else. That common ideal goal is what I aim for with every client I work with through the use of problem-solving strategies and coping mechanisms.

I service various types of couples (heterosexual, poly, LGBTQIA, high conflict), various family compositions and individuals experiencing, abuse , complex trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD, low self-esteem and identity issues.
Relationships are challenging and trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD, worry, shame and guilt are just some of the things that can hinder you from not only achieving a healthy relationship but also being the best version of yourself. As a Couples and Family therapist I help individuals, couples and families achieve relationship satisfaction, gain a deeper understanding of self and each other and heal from wounds that are negatively impacting the ability to heal. I believe that each individual in a relationship has their own individual thoughts and beliefs that are impacted by childhood and the families we are born into.

When we choose not to face our challenges, it can negatively impact our true being. My experience includes working with those struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief and loss, substance abuse , trauma, parent-child relationships, crisis intervention, just to name a few.

I bring a warm smile, a curious, gentle, down to earth manner, a sense of humor and an authentic self into the therapy room.

I have experience with survivors and offenders of domestic violence , substance use, parenting, and ran a court ordered anger management program.
I take a "holistic eclectic" approach to therapy. With the holistic aspect, I address symptoms as one way an individual's cognizance can convey consideration to an individual's advance perception. In the eclectic aspect, I use various theoretical approaches to meet client's needs. I also address the therapeutic relationship with the belief that a stable relationship incorporates trust, authenticity, autonomy and optimistic outcomes.

My experience is with various populations such as individuals with autism, survivors of domestic violence , and employees having difficulty with work life balance.
My approach to helping people with their mental health is to meet them where they are at and focus on their priorities. I also enjoy learning about everyone's unique experiences and qualities. Initially we may focus on learning to ground oneself back into the present, monitoring your moods and viewing oneself non-judgmentally. Another portion I like is helping people meet life goals through practical solution-focused approaches. Once we build rapport and establish your goals, I can help you move forward toward a future that you desire!
