Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #131285

Each person’s inner journey toward healing and growth is unique. Whether your journey is to heal past trauma, depression, or anxiety, or whether you need to address grief and relational issues, we will work together to find your own unique path to recovery and growth. I believe every person carries the potential to heal and grow from the challenges of life. My role is to stand with you and help guide you, as you take steps towards a journey of self-healing and growth. A journey which may call for your courage, vulnerability, and discomfort, but it holds treasures of reintegration, expansion, transformation, and liberation. My commitment is to create a compassionate, healing space in which I support you to achieve your personal goals while fostering a more meaningful, productive, creative, and rewarding life.

I am well versed in several therapeutic approaches and techniques including: CBT, DBT, Trauma focused cognitive Behavioral therapy (TFCBT), Emotionally focused therapy (EFT), Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), Art therapy, Solution focused therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Seeking Safety, and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy and believe in EBP, client-centered and trauma-informed care.
