About My Clients

I strive to help couples, adults, and families improve communication, trust, and security in their relationships. I work collaboratively with you to find your strengths and build upon them to overcome difficulties. I identify what is already working well for you and help you build skills to implement and use in your everyday life.

My Background and Approach

I have experience working with several presenting problems, including anxiety, depression, attachment concerns, self-esteem, grief, trauma, and life transitions. When working with individuals, I use Solution Focused Therapy and Narrative Therapy to help clients identify their strengths. These strengths are used to rewrite the client's story to reflect a more accurate view of themselves their purpose and capabilities. I offer clients a safe environment where they work towards lasting change. I also work with couples on infidelity, premarital counseling, sex and intimacy issues, blended families and more. I often use Gottman Couples Therapy to provide tools to improve communication and increase intimacy, respect, and affection in relationships. I also utilize Emotion Focused Therapy to help couples identify negative cycles and replace them with behaviors that can help the relationship thrive. Overall, I help couples turn disagreements into opportunities for connection.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I take a systemic approach when working with all clients. I look at clients on an individual level, as well as how they relate world around them. I believe therapy is a personal experience. Therefore, I strive to adapt my approach to each couple, individual, and family. I believe you are more than capable of solving your problems. If you’re ready to believe it too, reach out! Request an appointment for couples therapy, family therapy, or adult therapy to start breathing easier, feel less stress, and increase unity in your relationships.
