My Approach to Helping


I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist providing individual psychotherapy and couples counseling. I hold a safe, compassionate, therapeutic space. I view people not as problems to be solved, but persons with vast resources to be known. Taking into account the physical, emotional, relational, cultural, and spiritual dimensions, I draw upon a variety of strength-based approaches that utilize the natural capacity of persons and relationships to change. Viewing the therapeutic relationship as the heart of psychotherapy, I will meet you where you are, encourage you to turn toward your pain, assist you in developing strategies, and help you access your inner and relational resources. If you are interested in working together, or if you have any questions, please contact me.
