About Me

My ideal client is someone coping with mental health challenges, such as anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and/or substance abuse. I specialize in Behavioral Activation as an evidenced based intervention for treating mood disorders and moving clients toward their goals. I also enjoy working with couples and families to help them communicate better and resolve interpersonal conflict in a healthy way. I'm a certified Prepare-Enrich marital/premarital counselor. I am a systemic family therapist, who examines all dimensions of my clients' lives - biological, psychological, relational, and social - to help them grow in a positive way.

As a therapist, I am warm, empathetic, and understanding. I believe that all thoughts, feelings, and behavior serve a purpose. My goal is to help clients identify their purpose and then work to find healthier, more constructive ways to accomplish that purpose. I believe every person is unique and I help each client self actualize their full potential.

I look forward to working with you on your mental health goals.
