I have a strong passion for helping others, and I draw on both my personal and professional experience when working with clients. Therefore I made a career transition from the corporate world to follow my passion to become a marriage and family therapist. With now many years of experience working with couples, adults, teens, and families, I bring warmth, humor, compassion and openness to create a space for my clients to work on their own discovery and healing.  My approach to therapy is centered around building a trusting relationship with my clients where it is safe to work on difficult, painful issues.


My experience includes marriage and couples counseling; working through issues of communication, relationship conflict, parenting concerns, sex and intimacy, affairs, separation, and divorce. I have also worked with individuals and families struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, gender identity issues, suicidal thoughts, co-parenting, blended family issues, and behavioral concerns. My specialties include working with couples and families struggling with complex communication and conflict cycles that have become difficult to understand and manage, causing hurt and emotional distance in the relationship. 


I have taught Dialectical Behavioral Therapy in groups and have also used these skills with individuals who benefit from improved coping skills and mindfulness. Depending on the client’s needs, I make use of Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help people move toward healing. 
I thoroughly enjoy working with clients and feel honored to be a part of their journey.
