Throughout life we are faced with challenges that test our sanity. Whether those challenges appear within our relationships or within ourselves, the challenges can sometimes prove to be difficult to overcome. Fortunately, you don’t have to face those challenges alone. The overall goal of therapy is to provide a safe space for you to feel heard and acknowledged as well as comfortable.I work with a diverse population of individuals both culturally and diagnostically. This includes work with blended families, divorce, addiction, abuse, children, siblings, and much more.
My approach to therapy consists of getting to know you and your personality to ensure the best care that I can provide. I have experience using direct models of therapy where we will work together to set concrete goals and explore the hierarchy and boundaries within your family.
I also believe that treatment should be focused on your strengths and will work with you to identify how to use those strengths to your advantage. Throughout different sessions I may also implement sand tray to help provide a better picture of who you are. I will emotionally meet you where you are, and work on what you want to work on.

I have experience providing psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and families of all ages. I approach therapy using Cognitive Behavioral, Structural, and Family Systems Therapy. I am trained in Sand Tray and Level I Gottman Methods Couples Therapy.
My personal and clinical experience has allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of our environment, relationships, and positive shifts that can take place when offered supportive and validating resources. I would be honored to walk with you on your journey to wellness.
You’re not alone. I am here for you, so how can I help?
