I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), which means that I have been specially trained to assess and provide insights into the insidious patterns and cycles that get relationships stuck. Prior to starting my own practice, I worked at local government agencies with at-risk teens and children who witnessed domestic violence.
Well before I received any formal academic or work training in being a therapist, life taught me. I grew up in a family where it was useful to be observant of others' moods, and to understand the fragility and brutality that can exist in a single person. Life left its imprint on me, and the imprint states this: That within each of us exist both the Hero and the Villain of our own stories.
I help you find your way back to being your own hero. Together we'll dive into the stories you tell yourself about your hopes, dreams, failures, joys, and hurts. It will be tough, but I've got your back. I will always see the hero in you, even when you can't.
