Hello! I've been a therapist for 28 years and have had many opportunities to witness courage and resiliency. Along with their struggles and concerns, clients bring many strengths including creativity, humor, kindness, forgiveness and compassion. Being a therapist has brought meaning and fulfillment to my life. I can't imagine doing anything else. I'm most experienced and interested in working with couples working to improve their relationships at any stage of life and with individuals concerned with anxiety, life transitions, or depression.
I specialize in working with couples. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor with a specialization in marriage and family therapy. I approach therapy as a collaboration between the client and myself to determine the best fit for each person and situation. I have a strength-based counseling approach with an emphasis on skill building.
I love this quote by Maria Shriver, "Don't let anyone tell you that therapy is only for the weak. It's not. It's a safe space for the strong to work out what scares them." When you walk into my office, you've already taken a huge step toward the change you're seeking for yourself or your relationship. I value the opportunity to walk that path with you.
