As a marriage and family therapist (MFT), practicing in Southeast Idaho, I have over 15 years of mental health experience with the last 6 years focusing on marriage and family issues. I treat a range of relationship issues: couples and marital problems, infidelity, family problems, and child-parent problems. I practice therapy with brief, solution-focused goals. In marriage and family therapy, the unit of treatment isn't just the person - even if only a single person is interviewed - it is the set of relationships in which the person is embedded.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, non-judgemental, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines person-centered, and systems oriented therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I'm clinically trained in: Couples Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Family Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, Strategic Family Therapy, and Bowenian Family Therapy.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
