I work with couples, families and individuals who are seeking support and guidance with relationship distress, premarital, discernment, infidelity recovery, divorce recovery and co-parenting counseling needs. I privilege individual healing and growth within a framework for healthy relationships (“Humanistic-Relational” approach). For over 20 years, I have helped clients heal from relationship distress, trauma & PTSD, depression and addictions, and grow into better relationships with themselves and each other. Additionally, I enjoy providing therapy and consultation to therapists with similar interests.
I focus moments of change-for-the-better in session, while simultaneously working through problematic emotional patterns left from the past. I have earned certifications in AEDP, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Discernment Counseling, and have trained and integrate aspects of various CBTs, psychoanalysis, post-modern therapies, and couple & family therapies.
I guide clients to health and growth, and I don't give up hope that our relationships and emotional lives can be more satisfying and stable. Therapy with a partner, family members or by yourself can be immensely rewarding, and I enjoy working with all sorts of people and issues. Please reach out with any questions you might have.

I work first to help my clients settle in, manage any anxiety that comes up, and invite them to help me understand their goals and background. From there, we work together through their emotions to corrective experiences. As any barriers emerge, we identify any problematic patterns, emotions and intentions underlying those behaviors, and help make sense of and resolve those barriers to change.
