My Approach to Helping
*****PLEASE ASK ABOUT SLIDING SCALE OPTIONS DUE TO SUPERVISING MFT GRADUATE STUDENTS
You are the expert in your life, but there are times when even experts need alternate perspectives and objective feedback. I am committed to fostering a safe environment for you and your family while customizing treatment to improve your quality of life. I come from a genuine place, believing that we have a right to live our lives as we choose and want to create happiness with those choices.
I engage through actively listening and providing direct reflections, alternate perspectives, and unique insights which offer the opportunity for you to view things differently and make changes. Let our work together to bring the changes you are looking for.

My Therapy Focus
I work from a strength based perspective employing techniques and interventions drawn from Family Systems Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. My extensive experience working with individuals and families has deepened my dedication to assisting people to develop healthy lifestyles. My role is to provide new and/or different ways to looking at challenges in order to approach them more successfully than in the past. I consciously work to come from an unbiased perspective to help you live your life in the ways you choose.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
If you're on a fence then you must have been stuck and found a possible way out. Making the choice to go to therapy is a tough one and often the fear of what seems awkward and uncomfortable keeps us from making that choice. The best part of being on the fence is you already know how to climb the fence so either way you choose to jump you can always leap back over and go the other direction.
There is little risk in trying therapy- the risks come when you stick with it because you have moved far from the fence and that movement creates change. The most important factor in therapy is the relationship you develop with your therapist and often times after one session you know whether or not this person is someone you can work with. So I encourage you to try therapy, and see if jumping forward off the fence gets you to a better place.
