Since I began practicing 21 years ago, I've gathered extensive experience working with adults and adolescents (14-19 yrs) using a strengths-based approach in addition to assessing and increasing communication skills for all areas of life to ensure you get the most out of every session. Always first and foremost, my goal as a therapist is to be genuine, approachable, and nonjudgmental as I help guide you through the therapeutic process to become your own best resource.

While focusing on relationship-building as a primary theraputic tool, I have an eclectic approach with a high emphasis on Reality and Choice Therapy. I have experience treating a variety of client populations. My personal style is suited to treating clients who may have difficulty trusting others in that I'm told I'm very genuine and approachable. When necessary I take a firm but gentle approach to motivating people to change.
I have been working as a clinical therapist for 10 years, and previously worked in community social services with individuals experiencing homelessness and severe persistent mental illness. 15 years of work in the mental health field has taught me that a successful therapeutic relationship relies on building trust while seeking to understand my patients' points of view. In my previous therapy and social work roles, this belief has remained at the center of my work. As a therapist, I have extensive experience working with adolescents and adults with a variety of presenting concerns.
The world is messy, complex, and beautiful. Navigating it can be both difficult and wonderful — sometimes in the same moment. With these inherent contradictions in life, is it any surprise that we sometimes get stuck? I work with couples, individuals, and families and help them work through difficult times by creating new paths. Wherever you are in your life, I value your lived experience. I will work to create a safe space where together we can build a collaborative environment for you to discover more about yourself and your relationships.
I love working with teens and adults who are looking to make positive changes in their lives and are ready to heal from a variety of issues, including trauma exposure, PTSD, depression, anxiety, or family and relational issues. I think the relationship between therapist and client is the basis for healing and progress in therapy.
I was in the military from 2002-2014. While serving, I discovered one of my passions, listening and helping others. My hope is to help individuals find value in their lives that will comfort their struggles and learn coping mechanisms to aid with this. I also feel it is important to say that family relationships are important to me. I have a strong belief that life can be messy, things can be overwhelming at times, but life can be wonderful!
Are you experiencing less joy in your current relationship? Or are you single and wondering if you’ll ever meet the right person? Maybe you’re struggling with a friend or family member relationship? Healthy relationships are imperative to our emotional well-being; they help us to feel grounded and provide purpose and meaning in our lives. Feelings of anxiety or depression are not uncommon responses to isolation, disconnectedness or unhappiness in our relationships.
My focus might be short term counseling or longer term in-depth psychotherapy, depending on the needs of the client. In all cases, the client-therapist or counselor relationship quality is critical to real sustainable change. This relationship quality is created through empathy, genuiness and respect for the client and a genuine desire on my part to understand. When people feel known accurately and respected, that intangible magic begins to happen which leads to healing. Truth and love are definitely a part of that which leads us directly into the spiritual realm. Individual and couples therapy are my specialties.

Does the Past keep interfering with your Present? We’d all love to believe that what happened “back then” doesn’t have to affect us in the “here & now.” But trauma, a difficult childhood, deep loss—they all leave a mark. Painful experiences change how we feel about ourselves, our relationships, and how we view the world. We want to move on but we're stuck. No matter how hard we try to push the pain back or down or away... it leaks back in and we find ourselves living in the same old pain with the same old problems: Stuck. Exhausted. Frustrated.
You knew marriage wouldn’t always be easy, but you thought it would lead to deep connection and companionship. You never expected it would get this hard—then life happened. Kids were born, stresses mounted, and before you knew it, marriage started to feel like tension you never asked for. Conflict lurking around every corner. No spark left. Now you’re just two ships passing in the night. You’re trying to hold on and fight for each other. But it feels like you’ve ended up on opposite teams. I know you wanted more for your relationship, back to the dreams of “I do”. You crave a deep, emotional, safe connection with your best friend.
