You're ready for help from someone who can understand, hear what you're going through, and focus on your goals.

As a therapist with clinical and life experience, who believes everyone has their own strengths, I work collaboratively with clients. I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches to help clients deal with feeling down, depressed, anxious and overwhelmed.

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist who understands the difficulty in making the decision to start your therapeutic journey. You're doing great by taking your first step and choosing to see a therapist! As a therapist I believe in creating a safe space where my clients feel like they can learn more about themselves and reach their personal goals. It's also okay if you don't know what those goals look like. Vulnerability is a strength and I like to work from a strength-based approach. I have experience working with families, couples, individuals and children. I am passionate about my work and look forward to learning more about you.
Picture yourself standing in an empty room, all of your insecurities, fears, loneliness and sadness are present. Imagine you could strip away all of these things and everything that has ever held you back from feeling alive and present. As barriers are removed, your true self can emerge. Give yourself permission to be seen just as you are today. " Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen."
Often in our interactions with others, we leave parts of ourselves at the metaphorical door to shield us from potential pain. As a therapist, I meet you with full acceptance, and I welcome you to bring all of yourself (yes, the messy parts, too!) into our relationship. I am invested in getting to know you deeply, and I am committed to working hard alongside of you. It is completely normal and natural to feel uncertain about change. In my experience, very few come to therapy ready and willing to transform themselves. Why? Because it's hard! We instinctively hold onto the way things are for a reason, and that's okay.
I believe that certain patterns of behavior that impede personal growth are deeply rooted in our early experiences and relationships. They are largely outside of our awareness. Insight into how these experiences shape our perceptions, views and behaviors are illuminated through our work together within the therapeutic relationship. With clarity and a greater understanding of one's repetitive patterns, lasting change can be achieved as well as a sense of personal empowerment.

Trauma impacts all areas of life. We may experience sudden, intrusive memories of childhood experience. We may struggle to manage our own children, and we may have problems connecting with others and building healthy relationships. Psychotherapy can help you re-frame your experience, and assist you in identifying, clarifying and prioritizing your values and coping skills, opening the door to a more meaningful life.
I am known for Caring and Professional PERSONAL, MARRIAGE & RELATIONSHIP Counseling. Life is all about relationships. We shape them, and they shape us - they touch us to our very core! But finding a well-qualified relationship therapist when your relationship is suffering can be very difficult! Many therapists lack the specialized training, experience, or license to work with couples and families. As a result, couples often experience marriage therapy as lukewarm in supporting the goal of life-long commitment. I am licensed as a Marriage & Family Therapist, as well as Clinical Social Worker at the highest level of experience.

Psychotherapy is a confidential interpersonal relationship formed between a mental health professional and a patient. In this setting issues are addressed related to a person's level of functioning internally (way of thinking) and externally (how they react to the environment). In treatment, patients are able to talk with someone privately who is unbiased and that provides an objective point of view to their pending circumstance and assists them with problem resolution. Psychotherapy supports people with getting in touch with and their inner most feelings and learning how to communicate it more effectively, so that they improve relationships with others in their life (family/work/friends/school). This form of treatment can be performed one on one, with groups, couples and/or families.
Individual psychotherapy is provided to adolescents and adults. Additionally, couples counseling and family therapy is also available. The primary mode of treatment is through behavioral and cognitive therapy models. Psychiatric referrals are available upon request.
