I was trained in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy at Western Michigan University. I am passionate about connecting people and operate from a very person-centered approach. I have experience working with couples and marriages through a variety of topics including infidelity, communication issues, reinvigorating passion, life transitions (new career, moving, new life stages), grief, parenting struggles, blended families, anxiety, and depression. I love marriage counseling and put my all into my sessions. I emphasize the lost art of "taking care of yourself" and its impact on relationship satisfaction. I also use a lot of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy principles and Gottman methods in my practice. In this busy world, it can be really easy to skip past your emotions and move onto the next thing. I focus my couples on slowing down and really experiencing what their body is telling them so that we have direction on what the couple really needs to discuss.
