About

I believe in the power of the therapeutic connection and the immense and incredible impact that a strong and close therapeutic alliance can have in effecting change in the client, and it is this therapeutic alliance, along with the client’s own strength and inner resources, that is the greatest tool for change and growth.
As a marriage and family therapist it has been my privilege to work with a diverse clientele that has struggled with and overcome a variety of challenges in their lives. My licensure and work in this field is a culmination of my passion and desire to help those that struggle with emotional and mental health needs.
