my philosphy

As an experienced professional counselor, with a M.A. in Community Counseling and Certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy it is my honor to assist you in exploring your core issues and move toward a healthy, fulfilling life.

The goal of our therapy sessions together, will be to help you develop the mental fortitude needed to lead a successful life and to empower you to experience a better quality of life and ultimately reach your hopes, dreams and self-potential. 

I particularly enjoy working with women with mood disorders, anxiety disorders or grief and loss issues. Another passion of mine is working with couples. I find it challenging and quite rewarding to assist couples to work through their issues and help them become strong and vibrant in their relationship.

I use a variety of approaches to address the unique needs of my clients. Treatment plans typically utilize a foundation of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Family Systems, Gottman Method, Person-Centered then quickly move toward a tailored approach that include the tools to help sustain growth and are customized to meet your unique circumstances.

In our work together we will explore your feelings, your circumstances and your options. I will help you grow in your ability to confront what is right in front of you and navigate your present. Additionally, we will work on the skill of self-compassion, which will allow you to move more easily through difficult times as a woman, partner or parent.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time
