About Me

I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in Florida, Oregon, and Washington with over 5 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and divorce.

My therapeutic style is collaborative and supportive. I believe that each client is the expert of their own lives and it is my job to assist them along the journey of their life. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is a holistic and systemic one, which means I focus on relationships and the impact they have on ones emotional, physical, and mental health. I focus on each individuals unique characteristics, instead of what a diagnosis may say about them. Many of the challenges in clients' lives stem from trouble within the various relationships that they are involved in. I work from a strength-based approach to help clients discover and utilize their own individual strengths. I continue to work with clients to use their challenges as opportunities for change and growth.

Sometimes it is hard to ask for help, as we can be expected to do it all and not waiver. As much as we can all hope for this, sometimes we need a little extra "oomph" to get us through.

I look forward to working with you!
