I am therapist who comes to the field with a life well lived so far. My approach to therapy is one that is empathetic, straightforward, clear, and with a touch of humor. Therapy is a collaborative process where we work together towards your goals.
My approach is an eclectic one from Emotionally Focused Therapy, Attachment Work, Trauma Processing, Ego State Therapies and DBT…I don’t confine myself to one modality because that one might not work for you.
What clients have in common is a feeling of where to go from here? What do I do now? It can feel like everyone else is doing so much better than you are. Why am I not where I thought I would be at in this point in my life? Why is my marriage so difficult? Is parenting this hard for everyone? Am I not good enough, smart enough, or brave enough? I know that life can be complicated, and it does not come with a manual.
I love working, with couples, families, and teenagers. With my master’s being in marriage and family counseling, that is where my heart lies. Moreover, I have a passion for working with teens and their parents. As a parent of three, I believe that parenting is the toughest job that anyone can or will have. I would love to help those who are struggling with either being a teenager or having one.
I view mental health as a journey, one that we all go through. My job is to help those that I work with move through this journey in the healthiest way possible. My goal is to work with clients to face and navigate their lives in an effort to help gain new perspective, growth, and resiliency.
