I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who is dedicated to helping people overcome their personal challenges. I sincerely believe we all have the capacity to grow and become the hero of our own story.

The challenges we face in life—such as mood issues, trauma, and relational issues—are not isolated events, but parts of our personal narrative. Our experiences in the past, present, and future are interconnected.

I help adults, youths, couples, and families to discover the relationship between past experiences and current concerns. I also show them how understanding this relationship may help to resolve presenting issues and promote long-term health.

More Info About My Practice

I believe that modalities of therapy should be tailored to the individual, couple, or family. Some of these which I implement are Narrative Therapy, CBT, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Bowen Family Systems Therapy.
I am certified in PREPARE/ENRICH and Gottman Level 1, which are evidence-based therapy modalities for couples at any stage of their relationship. I utilize a holistic, client-centered approach to helping clients identify the role of culture and society in their identity.
