I provide education, safety, and sensitivity so that we can explore your values, obstacles, sexuality, family dynamics, and commitment to making meaningful changes in your life and in relationships.
Hi, there! Currently available for midday appointments. I am a trauma-informed individual, relational, and AASECT certified sex therapist, and together, we will explore what it means to change and accept aspects of yourself, a relationship, and/or a difficult situation. You will also get to learn the skills that help build resilience and groundedness based on research outcomes. I hold the perspective that identifying desired meaningful outcomes, a willingness to commit to intentionality, and choosing to hold ourselves accountable to what we intrinsically value is our most important work.

As a marriage and family therapist , I believe in the power of relationships and connection. It is my goal to create a foundation of trust, respect, and unconditional positive regard in the therapy relationship. Whether working with individuals, couples, or families, I work best with clients who come to therapy motivated, ready to build on existing strengths and learn new skills and strategies when helpful.

In addition to clients coping with trauma, I also work with families, couples, or people facing a major life change such as the loss of a love, or family death.
Finding someplace safe to process trauma is surprisingly difficult. I have had therapists myself, who are kind and book-smart, but when they have no personal experience with it, I never quite felt safe with them. I am a trauma specialist (CPTSD, moral injury, victims of torture, victims of racism or sexism, survivors of other people's sociopathic behavior, DV, etc.). Currently I am 100% private practice/private pay. This means that there is no outside party who gets to limit session numbers or require immediate diagnostics. Clients do not have to tell me details about their traumatic event for us to work together and address it.

In addition to a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy , I have a Masters in Theology.
I offer therapy to individuals, couples and families who want a welcoming, safe place to process what is happening within or among them. From clients, I learn how they see the world, how they understand themselves, what patterns create their interactions, and where they want to go from here. Clients are empowered to determine their goals and create new perspectives on themselves and the world around them. The hope is that, during sessions, clients will gain new skills and thought patterns for the benefit of the relationships that give their lives meaning.

Because everyone is part of a family or community, I believe it is important to see each individual as part of a very unique system, with unique needs and values.
Do life’s challenges leave you feeling frustrated, anxious, and hopeless? Are your relationships full of arguments and conflict? Navigating life's hardships can be exhausting and lonely, but you don't have to face it alone. Engaging in therapy can help you learn strategies to make real and lasting changes, deal with trauma and difficulties from the past, and have the life you truly want.

I also look at the individual within the context of the family of origin.
I have 35 years of experience helping people find a way to live a richer and more satisfying life. Therapy is about empowering individuals and coming face-to-face with adversities. Clients are helped to explore past experiences that impact current emotions and behaviors. In order to change you need to resolve internal conflicts that lead to emotional distress, unwanted behaviors and physical symptoms. I help to create a safe place for you to be able to talk about the meaning of your feelings and thoughts thus gaining greater knowledge of self.

I love learning! I am specifically trained in various couple's therapy modalities, understanding the family system, and Pia Mellody's Post Induction Therapy which focuses on healing relational trauma.
Life is hard and often not fair at times. We seek therapy to feel heard, validated and find ways to move through our pain. I work with a broad range of individuals, couple's and families. My passion is helping those with relational issues, developmental trauma, substance use as well as eating disorders. I will work with individuals (13+). I love working with transplants as I understand the complexities of moving to another part of the country and not knowing the culture. My goal is to help you find yourself, that internal voice that tells you, "you are worthy, you are enough."

I switched from school counseling to working as a therapist when I realized that more time was needed directly with my students. I have a laid back style and can work quickly or slowly, whatever works for you. I love to watch my clients grow and have those “lightbulb moments” to help with independence and success. I love to work with children, adolescents, or adults-anyone who has struggled with chemicals, is in recovery or a family /close friend of anyone struggling. I also work with clients who are pursuing change after grief. Change and grief are hard, and I am happy to help.

I also work to heal relational trauma wounds stemming from dysfunctional family systems.
If you are in a marriage or relationship where you think it would be easier to "go it alone" or you feel like you are "not enough" for your partner or that you just "don't communicate," than I can help. I will work with that part of you that does not want to change. If you are willing I believe that I can help you and your partner/spouse figure out how you get stuck and how you can get back to the relationship you once had and better! I also focus on healing developmental trauma and other traumatic events in their lives.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
