Most people experience difficulty, transition, or change at some point, whether in their personal lives, jobs, or relationships. Families face many pressures in today's world, and seeking therapy can be a challenging decision. But understanding your need for support is a sign of profound courage. It can be difficult, though, to find a therapist who listens to you, understands your challenges, and really connects with you.
I aim to provide a supportive and warm environment in which clients feel safe developing new skills and nurturing their confidence. I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist, and I specialize in helping children, teens, couples, individuals, and families, using a nonjudgmental and compassionate approach.
I work with my clients to help them tackle interpersonal challenges, relationship struggles, family difficulties, conflicts between parent and child, anxiety, depression, panic disorders, substance abuse, trauma, mood disorders, life transitions, and grief.
I aim to help my clients reduce their symptoms while understanding the underlying issues that help problematic thoughts and behaviors to continue. Therapy helps you understand why you choose ineffective behaviors and enables you to make lasting, positive changes in your life.

More Info About My Practice
I am accepted by most health insurance carriers as an Out-of-Network provider. I do not take insurance directly. Client's pay fees at time of service. I will provide a monthly Superbill (accepted by all insurance companies) containing the necessary codes and information for client's to be reimbursed. Contact your insurance company to find out if and how much they reimburse for mental health services.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
One of my areas of expertise is trauma-related issues for adults, adolescents, and children: PTSD, Panic Disorders, Anxiety related issues, Physical, Emotional, and Sexual Abuse. I work with several State Victim's of Crime Programs providing therapy services for individuals who have experienced trauma related to a crime. I especially enjoy working with military families who encounter difficulties re-integrating into family life after a deployment. I offer a reduced fee for active-duty military families.
