As the bond strengthens, we will create pathways to a helping relationship and more desired outcomes.
Children and families have been the focal point of my career for over 20 years. I have learned that youth and adults benefit from listening, understanding, and validation. Nowadays, the impact of unresolved mental health issues is a clear and present growing risk factor. Please do not hesitate to speak with someone about difficult matters. Having good mental health can reduce risk factors and should be a prioritized need alongside our physical health. For mental health crises, you can call Mobile Crisis at 877-626-1772; or National Suicide Prevention Hotline 800-273-8255 (dial 988). For life threatening emergencies, please call 911.

Through the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, mindfulness, and Dialectical Behavior, I provide treatment services to adults and youth that have been affected by a range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, life transitions, relationship issues, trauma, communications, and more!.
The ultimate act of self-love is prioritizing your mental health and emotional well-being. Though life is hard, and reaching out for help can be even harder, my goal is to create a safe, inclusive space where you are given the freedom to be as expressive, vulnerable, and honest as you feel comfortable. Together, we will create coping strategies, sharpen core skills, and construct healthy boundaries that can support you on your journey to wellness and self-awareness. I provide support and guidance as you navigate and explore new, healthier ways of being.

Do you find yourself struggling with overthinking, relationship satisfaction, or relieving past hurts or scary moments? Please know that you don't have to go through this. Establishing treatment with the goal to manage these symptoms, and in many cases eliminate the symptom is within reach. To wake up feeling light and burdensome free, without past hurts shadowing over your present is reason enough to establish care.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
