I have a Masters Degree from Syracuse University in Marriage and Family Therapy. I received a Certificate of Advanced Study of Trauma from Syracuse University. I also have additional training in working with the transgender population. I am currently a Doctoral Candidate working on my PsyD in Marriage and Family Therapy at Alliant International University . I use an integrative approach when working with clients to help tailor interventions for each specific client goal. I work closely with clients to ensure they are getting their needs met in sessions to help them achieve their desired outcomes.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

At times we struggle to keep a healthy balance in our lives. Neglecting our mental health needs is one key contributor to imbalance. Therapy can help to realign our focus and clarity. The therapeutic process can help heal past hurt and promote self growth to a healthier you. As a therapist, I take a very integrative approach, utilizing multiple theoretical interventions based on a person's unique needs. I work collaboratively with clients to help them in their growth process and act as guide to help each person reach a more holistic harmony within themselves.
