About

I love relationships and the amazing feeling you get when you are truly connected to others. This passion has driven me to learn and cultivate skills to help others find this connection in their own lives. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. If you are struggling in your relationship, want a more satisfying bond, or find yourself in conflict with those you love; I can help.
I received my MS from Auburn University in 1989. I have completed additional training in the Gottman Method and in Emotional Focused Couples Therapy. My education, training and experience allows me to specialize in working with couples and families. Additional areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, veteran issues, trauma and abuse.
I work collaboratively with my clients to develop a safe environment where they can find ways to develop a meaningful and authentic relationships. I believe each individual, couple or family who seeks help has the ability to make changes in their lives. I am committed to work with you to make these changes.
