I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist that works with children, parents, families, and individuals that are experiencing challenges in their lives that may have stemmed from early childhood trauma, generational trauma, or those who were born with biological traits that drastically differer from their parents. I have extensive history working with families and children who are strained from challenging behaviors, unproductive familial patterns, and ongoing parent-child conflict.

My practice provides therapy that results in clarity, understanding, solutions, healing, and practicing healthy practices, so you and your family can thrive happily amongst one another and as a productive family system. I specialize in treating children, individuals, and families experiencing challenges related to adoption, trauma, attachment, & other related issues.

I use a collaboration of therapeutic interventions focused on strengthening attachments, developing creative systems to reduce conflict, and cultivating restorative and positive experiences. I am always exploring opportunities for clients to activate these positive experiences to shed the negative beliefs and systems that no longer serve their lives today.
