My Approach to Helping

I believe that we all have issues and struggles in life and there are times when we need a trained professional counselor to help us navigate through life's storms. My philosophy is that every person is responsible to create meaning in their lives and to fulfill our potential as human beings. My approach is empathetic and non-judgmental. It is my goal with every individual, every couple and every family to help facilitate peace, joy and a sense of fulfillment in their lives.

More Info About My Practice

I have earned a doctorate from the University of Nevada, Reno in Counselor Education and Supervision. I am licensed in the State of Nevada as a Marriage and Family Therapist . I am a member of the EMDR International Association, American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists as a National Clinical Fellow.

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

I work with many people who struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and life transitions. I have a strong law enforcement background and understand the law enforcement culture and the issues law enforcement officers face on a daily basis. I have specialized training in couples therapy through The Couples Institute and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) through the EMDR International Association.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love being a therapist because I believe that every person is of great worth. Every person is unique and has their own life story. There are two kinds of people: those who have issues and those who are no longer living. I love helping people navigate through the difficulties and struggles in life and come out the other side happier and more at peace. I believe we are all in this life together and that we are meant to help each other. This is my way of helping and giving back for the blessings in my life. I consider it a sacred experience to sit in the presence of another human being who is willing to share their lives with me. I take seriously my commitment to help empower others to live the lives they long for.
