Life can be difficult and overwhelming at times. I am passionate about helping you where you're at within the context of a safe therapeutic environment. Have you had feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, or depression? Or are feeling stuck, wondering about life and where you fit in? Maybe you're struggling in a relationship or marriage? I enjoy working with adolescents, adults & couples. I enjoy working with adolescents who have depression, Self Injury, school anxiety and or school refusal and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) I also enjoy working with couples who are struggling in their marriage or relationship.

Couples & Marriage Specialist: I am Highly trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) I have completed many years of clinical training in EFT and have helped many couples regain closeness. EFT is clinically proven to help couples who have become alienated by negative interaction cycles. For more information: https://iceeft.com/what-is-eft/

I work from a strengths based approach, using clinically proven therapies. After originally being trained as a school social worker and working many years at a Behavioral Health Hospital, I have a broad range of experience which gives me the extra training and experience of being able to understand personal struggles.
