About My Clients

Navigating your 20's & 30's has had more twists and turns than you anticipated. You feel confident professionally, but have struggled to translate to your relationships. You battle bouts of anxiety and depression. Faith has been important to you, but you're not sure how or where it fits now. Let's help you move from keeping your head above water to reclaiming joy.

My Background and Approach

Just as much of our wounding happens in relationships, I believe that much of our healing also happens in relationships. The relationship we build becomes the vehicle of change and safe place to practice relating to yourself and others differently. I bring in my training & tools as a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist to support you in creating the life and relationships you desire. I use an eclectic approach with my clients, drawing on evidence based treatment practices like CBT, DT, Psychodynamic, Gottman Method, and EMDR to find what works for each client. I have additional training in Prepare Enrich assessments for couples as well as EMDR to effectively & efficiently heal trauma.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I consider it an absolute honor to accompany my clients on their journey of healing. I believe that every person is inherently valuable and worthy of love, whether our society's structures convey that or not.
