About

My soul vocation is to help individuals and families navigate transitions and/or overcome challenges impacting quality of life. As a Certified Level 1 SFBT Therapist my work is solutions oriented and focused on (1) individuals struggling with adjustments to sudden or milestone life changes, (2) families raising children with learning challenges needing support in resolving concerns and strengthening positive relationships, and (3) family therapy for those experiencing inter-generational cultural dissonance. Certified in DBT and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Level 2 through Evergreen Certifications. Gottman Method Level 1.
Clients are supported to focus on personal strengths by cultivating healthy coping skills needed in times of change and uncertainty. My style is based in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) informed counseling with Narrative Therapy. My approach is structured and evidence-based with an emphasis on monitoring progress.
The most important story you will ever write is your own. Every chapter of your life is an intrinsic part of the one of a kind story of you. Every person is the author of their life and deserves to write a fulfilling masterpiece. Call or email me for a free initial phone consultation to see if I am a good fit to support you on writing the best story of you.
