I offer individual therapy for children (8+), adolescents, and adults. I work with issues including but not limited to anxiety, behavioral problems, depression, parenting, school issues, and self-confidence building.
I strive to give clients the skills that they can take from the session into their daily lives; to achieve a more fulfilling relationship and deeper connections.
I enjoy helping families learn the skills of cooperation, compassion, and understanding to support the family unit work, communicate, and grow with each other.
I also work with couples in varying dynamics in their relationships. We work on restoring open and honest communication, breaking destructive patterns, and manage the different phases of a relationship.
In couples’ sessions, I strive to give couples the skills that they can take from the session into their daily lives; to achieve a more fulfilling relationship and a deeper connection.

I have always loved stacked rocks for their beauty however their meaning brings a special piece to my practice: They have been used throughout history to mark one's personal passage through an area.
In my opinion, it's a beautiful reminder of where we have been and where we are headed.

Marriage & Family Therapists are trained in systematic or relational therapy. They believe that throughout life, we exist in several relationships that directly and indirectly impact our well-being. Our relationships with family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors influence and create our individual experiences. Find out more about how an MFT can help you navigate your journey.
I am an AAMFT Supervisor that can supervise students who are in school or in their internship who need an MFT Supervisor. I have worked with individuals or through the clinics, they are placed in.
If you are in need of a supervisor please email me for more information.
My desire is to help grow and strengthen our MFT community.
