Connecting with the right therapist for you and your family is the first important step towards healing. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I understand the importance of relationships, and know that your relationship with your chosen therapist needs to be one that feels safe, empowering, and impactful. Couples, individuals, and families come to therapy to address challenges that often feel overwhelming, insurmountable, and scary. Together, we can work at your pace towards creating space to process difficult situations and emotions, and utilize relationships as a vessel for healing.

I work with individuals, couples, and families of all ages to expand safety, understanding, and love in relationships--even if, for the individual, that expansion happens within the relationship to oneself. I work collaboratively with my clients to identify their goals, strengths, and road blocks in order to assist with long-term growth and healing.

Beginning therapy is often a difficult choice, and it can bring with it feelings of anxiety and paralysis; but these don't need to stop you from becoming your best self, partner, or parent. Dr. Brené Brown said it perfectly when she wrote "we don't have to do all of it alone. We were never meant to." Let's start tackling life's challenges together.
