My Approach to Helping
Relationships can be hard and complex. They can bring us great joy or great pain. I believe the way we operate stems from our unique family histories and affect us in all our relationships today. As a marriage and family therapist, I can help you maneuver through difficult life transitions, challenging relationships & help you improve your quality of life.
I specialize in couples & family therapy, as well as trauma and addictions. I have over 6 years experience and utilize a variety of modalities. I am a certified PrepareENRICH facilitator, trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and I utilize Gottman Method Couples Therapy in my work (a research-based approach to relationships).

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
We all go to the doctor when we are sick or hurt. In fact, we even get check ups annually for our teeth, skin, and body. Insurance companies promote preventative care. Yet, most people wait till it is unbearable to seek out emotional or mental help. Why is this??? Who told you that taking care of your emotional health makes you weak??? In fact, it is the exact opposite. Being proactive about healing, emotional intelligence and healthy relationships with yourself and others shows character, strength and ambition. Most people don't realize how your emotional health can actually effect your physical health. Most people don't realize that they are empowered to break generational patterns in their family and do things different! You can be the one in your family that breaks this pattern of doing life alone. What are you waiting for!
