My Background and Approach

Therapy can feel really intimidating and scary, especially if you've never done it before. In movies and TV, we rarely see a positive example of a therapy session - instead, we laugh or cringe at how uncomfortable or awkward sessions can be. I work really hard to help therapy feel more like a conversation, not a place for you to feel lectured or told what you are doing wrong. You can get advice from any self-help book. Instead, I want you to feel the warm connection with another person while you share some of your challenges and pains. I love working with individuals and couples. I draw from insights that are research-based, such as the work of Brene Brown, John Gottman, and Sue Johnson. I graduated with my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2011 and since then, have enjoyed working with people of all ages and backgrounds.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe we are created to be in connection with other people, not in isolation, and support causes that help people achieve deeper relationships with others. I personally have a Christian background and love working with people who are interested in exploring how faith and spirituality informs their sense of purpose and belonging.
