As a Marriage and Family therapist, I work with individuals, couples, and families addressing a variety of concerns. My goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment where my clients feel free to express themselves openly and honestly and to provide compassion, insight, and practicality that may provide the opportunity to open doors to hope, healing, positive growth, and change. As a family systems trained therapist I strive to help clients look at all aspects of their life to help identify influences that may be currently contributing to expressed concerns, look at the current impact, and to increase tools to help effectively manage and/or navigate through various challenges. I recognize each client is unique and appreciate the courage and patience that is often needed to develop long lasting changes. I work collaboratively with my clients to ensure we are meeting their goals and their true visions of how they want to live their life.

More Info About My Practice

The initial consultation is 80-85 minutes long and is $110.00. Each session after that is typically 50-55 minutes and the standard fee is $95.00 per session. I offer college student and military discounts (active duty, active reserves, National Guard, and retirees.) My office hours are Monday- Thursday 10:00-7:00 and Saturdays 11:00-4:00. Although I am private pay only and do not personally file with insurance companies, I am fully licensed and can provide a SuperBill for you to file with your insurance. Many insurance companies do not cover couples therapy and this helps keep my rates lowered.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Working with couples is my passion. However, in addition to Couples/Marriage/Pre-marital counseling, I offer individual and family therapy. My goals are to help clients live the life they desire and to help increase the awareness and address the obstacles that may be getting in the way. My hope is for each person to feel validated, heard, and understood and to increase their ability to access and express their honest feelings and needs.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Some of the possible benefits of therapy are increased satisfaction with relationships, resolution of issues, and a greater understanding of self, relationships, and cultural influences. Other possible benefits may be reduced stress and anxiety.

Furthermore, an individual, couple, or family, may develop increased communication skills, coping skills and a clearer sense of their values and goals.
