About me

I am an individual and couples counselor with fifteen years of experience.

I tailor my work with clients to ensure a person-centered approach. We can work together collaboratively as you continue your journey at your own pace. I would like to support you in clarifying your goals and find healthy ways to meet them. Growth and change are not always easy but together, we can explore what tools and skills will best lead you to where you want to be.

Working with individuals, I like to reassure clients that we are each on our own path in life and our journey will not be the same as those of our peers. We arrive at different places and at different times, but I believe we are all where we are meant to be.

Together we could identify changes that could have a positive impact on your life and help lead you to personal growth and satisfaction.
In working with couples, I have completed levels 1, 2, and 3 of the Gottman method as well as Treating Affairs and Trauma and Couples and Addiction Recovery. I like that the Gottman Method gives roadmaps and specific exercises to use in treatment. I have found couples find it effective and helpful.

I look forward to working with you!
