My Approach to Helping

As a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), I work with couples, families, and individuals to better manage life’s challenges. I offer a safe, supportive, judgment-free space that offers guidance to help you achieve your goals through open, honest communication.

More Info About My Practice

I partner with adolescents, children, and adults as individuals or families/couples to support healing, growth, relationship improvement, and the reduction of emotional suffering. I address issues such as compulsive behavior, addiction, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship concerns, life adjustment difficulties, self-esteem challenges, grief, loss, and managing stress.

I am particularly interested in working with teens and families to navigate defiance, conduct issues, and sexual boundaries. I focus on cultivating empathy for oneself and for others, and identifying cycles of abusive behaviors. I offer my clients healthy alternatives to problem behaviors.

It’s easy to find a convenient appointment time with my online and phone scheduling. If you need additional times, or have concerns or questions, feel free to contact me.
