About this Service

I have a doctorate degree in marriage and family therapy, and have been practicing for 15+ years. I am very passionate about what I do, and feel very fortunate to love what I do. I specialize in relationship issues, including dating, managing conflict, processing through family issues, and separation. I have also worked extensively helping clients suffering from depression and anxiety, using compassionate and innovative approaches. I also specialize in trauma recovery, and believe deeply in the power of therapy to heal the wounds that trauma can create.

I understand the importance of creating a nurturing and safe environment to do this hard work. I incorporate humor and friendship in my practice and have found this helpful in furthering the progress and positive experience that therapy can bring. I also consider myself an active role in the process. I believe in the importance of challenging my clients, and I will push each person to understand their part in the dynamic that has been created, and to do this with love and encouragement.

I have attended many specialized trainings in order to increase my competence, and be able to use current research to offer the most effective treatment. I believe that the difference between a good and a great therapist is in their willingness to keep growing in their profession, both through continued education, experience, and consultation. These are all things I take very seriously in my own practice.

I would love the opportunity to be able to work with you, and look forward to joining with you through the pain, and guiding you toward the life you were meant to live.
