I view therapy as a process during which individuals, couples, and families are given the chance to discover strengths, solutions, and abilities that are already within but may be overshadowed by various obstacles in life. I believe that change happens when individuals are given a safe space in which to be themselves, feel heard, process decisions, and connect emotionally with others. I hope to provide such a space and look forward to celebrating positive changes in the lives of my clients. I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) but incorporate Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and PREPARE/ENRICH interventions when working with couples.

I’ve had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings with multiple populations and concerns. Early in my career, I worked primarily with children, adolescents, and teenagers, as well as their families, in the home environment. Since then, I have worked one-on-one with individuals detoxing from alcohol and other substances and facilitated treatment groups in an inpatient setting. For the last several years, my focus has been in private practice and I have experience with challenges such as marital and other relational conflicts, infidelity, depression, anxiety, self-esteem and many other issues that individuals face every day. I am always seeking to develop my skills and learn new things. Currently, I am certified to facilitate the PREPARE/ENRICH pre-marital and marital enrichment programs. Additionally, I have completed the Level 2 training of Gottman Method Couples Therapy. My training in Marriage and Family Therapy allows me to view all situations through a systemic lens, meaning that I take into account how each individual is impacted by their relationships, families, friends, school, church, and work.
