Hi! Welcome!


Change can be a difficult thing, and entering into therapy can be a scary experience for people, my hope is that it doesn’t have to be that way. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe and secure place for you to come and experience difficult feelings and emotions to understand yourself better- to empower you to learn your own cycles and grow into a more authentic and congruent version of yourself. I am so glad you’re here to start the process!

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family therapist. Being trained as a marriage and family therapist emphasized the importance of building relationships, big or small, through connection and authenticity. I carry this same approach into my counseling, understanding that for change to occur, trust and understanding need to be built between counselor and client as much as between partners. I’ve used this approach for nearly ten years as I walk alongside clients as they face anxiety or depression, suicidal thoughts or actions, problematic sexual behaviors, as well as mood and personality disorders. I also guide couples through the difficult but healing journey of amends after sexual and or emotional betrayal. I am a certified sex addiction therapist (CSAT) through the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals. I use this certification to inform my treatment with the couple as I guide both sides toward restoration and healing.  I also specialize in the leading evidence-based interventions from Sue Johnson's Emotion-Focused Therapy and John Gottman's Sound Relationship House. Both therapeutic modalities are experiential in nature, meaning we work "in the room" in live time. My passion is providing couples with the tools they need to succeed outside of the therapy office, to find functional ways to communicate about whatever is needed so that both people feel heard, validated, and seen. I want couples and individuals “not just have an explanation but an experience” of healing while doing therapy with me.


 I have worked in various settings, from an inpatient psychiatric unit to a community mental health setting, to private practice working with individuals, couples, and groups. These experiences have reinforced the education I’ve received that stability, reliability, consistency, and safety are key to the therapeutic process. I hope that our office can be a place where you come to receive all of those things and utilize them to learn about acceptance of yourself and your experiences in life. With that acceptance, you can then make meaning of and assimilate experiences so they no longer rule you, and you are more able to live a life consistent with your values. I hope to see you soon.
