It is my belief that life includes suffering and that there are two influential ways that we create more suffering for ourselves. The first is a lack of acceptance of our reality and the second is isolation that results from not practicing vulnerability and connection in our relationships. I am here to help by offering support and validation as well as reliable psychological techniques to help you through whatever current struggles you are encountering. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I have experience working with couples, families, and individual adults and adolescents.

I practice from an emotion-focused, mindfulness based approach and view individuals and relationship dynamics from a holistic perspective. I am a warm and compassionate person who finds that both empathy and humor are crucial components to building a trusting and honest relationship with my clients.

I have extensive experience working with transgender/non-binary identified individuals as well as other members of the LGBT community. I also have extensive experience working with chemical dependency, anxiety, depression, trauma, personality disorders, grief and loss, couples and families, and suffering that results from unresolved family of origin issues.
