Welcome! 


The focus of my practice is to help individuals, couples, and families take back control of their lives.  My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help you address life challenges.  I integrate proven interventions to offer a personalized approach tailored for each client. With compassion and acceptance, I will work with you to help build on your strengths to attain the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing.  


In addition to having earned a Master of Art degree in Mental Health Counseling, I have a specialized concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy. This includes additional education in theories of family process and development, human sexuality, and couples and family counseling. My goal is to help you achieve more deeply rewarding relationships that will sustain you for life. 


To contact me personally for an appointment, please                        

I do have weekend and evening appointment times available.  I will also schedule short notice marriage or family therapy crisis appointments.
