I believe in helping each person find their inner greatness. 

cThe foundation of my therapy is the connection I make with my clients, providing a safe and supportive environment allowing each person to heal and grow. My individual, couples and family therapy is strength based, attachment focused and individualized. I specialize in working with adopted, kinship and blended families. I have extensive experience working with LGBTQ individuals, couples and families.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I work with individuals, couples and families within the context of relationships. I utilize a family systems approach based on creating safety and emotional resiliency. I work with my clients to develop treatment plans that build on their unique strengths, and incorporate their religious, spiritual, cultural and ethnic backgrounds and beliefs. I am direct and interactive and will work with you to develop clear goals that are results oriented. I utilize treatment approaches that incorporate various evidenced informed and evidenced based treatments depending on the individualized needs of the client(s) I am working with.

Attachment Focused Treatment

I look forward to hearing from you.
