As a client-centered therapist, I believe you are the expert in your own life. I consider it to be a privilege and blessing to be a part of your journey to find fulfillment in your life. I work from a holistic framework, holding the central hypothesis that every person has the innate potential for personal awareness and growth. I strive to maintain the creative and dynamic process of therapy utilizing theory and interventions from multiple models of therapy. I am committed to creating a therapeutic environment based on collaboration, action-oriented interventions, skill building and honest, supportive feedback.

I also specialize in couples’ therapy. Couples crisis occurs with life-stage transition stress and unresolved conflict resulting in anxiety, anger, resentment, frustration and hopelessness. My couples’ therapy is based on Emotionally Focused Therapy and Dr. Gottman’s approach to repairing and maintaining strong relationships.

My goal is to provide a safe and supportive space, developing a relationship built upon empathy, increased insight and collaboration.
