I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 25 years of experience. I love working together with clients to achieve their goals. My approach is warm, welcoming and affirming with a client centered perspective. I have experience with a wide range of issues including partner relational issues, parenting, anxiety and depression, coping with life changes, handling stress (both personal and professional) and many more. I have experience working with client of all ages,. I’m certified in Parent Child Interaction Therapy which focuses on work with both parent and child to better cope with severe behavioral disorders in young children (ages 2 to 7) and I also have a certificate in aging as well. I have worked with couples, individuals, families, and children.
I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused therapy to assist clients in understanding how their thoughts and feelings are influencing their behavioral choices. I also focus on life stages and development with a focus on helping you better understand your current situation in the context of both your individual life course and the common life stages and developmental tasks we all pass through as we go through life.
I know that coming to therapy can make you feel incredibly vulnerable. My approach is to help you become comfortable and create a safe space where you can use the courage that it took for you to reach out to spur you on towards the positive change you are seeking. I’m really looking forward to working with you.
