I am interested in helping individuals, families, and couples who are confronted with difficult challenges in their personal and professional lives. This includes marital obstacles of infidelity, marital stagnation, and partner abuse. It is also my desire to serve those struggling with issues of substance abuse and process addictions; such as pornography, compulsive sexual behaviors, and histories of sexual abuse. In addition, I look forward to helping teens and adolescents who find themselves struggling in areas of social relations, academic progress, and/or who are frequently in trouble at school or with the law due to challenging personal behaviors.

I hold a master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy and am pursuing a doctoral degree in Art Therapy.
Every individual carries their own inner wounds that need to be dealt with. I believe therapy can help us progress on our healing journey. When we are empathetically understood and listened to, we discover our hidden strengths as resources and are empowered to better understand and relate to ourselves and those around us. When we start to see our originally rigid pattern of thoughts from multiple angles, we will have a greater capacity to understand situations we find ourselves in more objective ways.

If you are looking for premarital or marriage counseling, if you want to be happy but questioning if it is possible, if you want to stop feeling disconnected and discouraged about where your relationship is headed and instead rebuild trust and intimacy, schedule an appointment today.
Most couples want a marriage where they can be vulnerable with each other. Where intimacy and loyalty come together and create a beautiful friendship where they can experience the fullness of life together. The problem is, many couples often feel isolated and uncared for because of unmet expectations, miscommunication, and mistrust. I know it's frustrating when you feel like you aren't on the same team or how sad it feels when you second-guess if you made the right choice when you said “I do.”

Have you been through the spin cycle one too many times in your relationship or marriage? Asking yourself, "How did I get here?" Coming out of divorce or contemplating divorce or separation? Do you think your partner is a narcissist? Or are they avoiding issues that you know are relevant? Do they blame you for everything? Have you or your partner experienced childhood trauma and it is wreaking havoc on your relationship? Maybe you have just had enough and you need to sort out your feelings and get grounded. The fact is that relationships, both past and present, lie at the core of all of our problems.
