“Compatibility doesn't determine the fate of a marriage, how you deal with the incompatibilities, does.”

About Me

Since 2013 I have been working with families, adolescents, and couples who are experiencing a wide variety of challenges. It has become a passion of mine to strengthen and empower individuals who seek to deepen relationships, build self-esteem, and improve communication.  I have supported clients in learning to manage addiction, depression, anxiety, and anger, I have also supported couples in processing affairs, neurodiverse relationships, parenting challenges, and more. I believe that everyone needs and deserves a safe space to be seen and heard; counseling works to create such an environment. 

My approach focuses on exploring a client's experience, helping them identify problematic behavior, then work towards a solution. I utilize tools such as in-session exercises, take-home activities, and individual and couples/family sessions to create a holistic plan to improve their overall wellbeing. 

I believe in meeting you where you are. My job is to partner with you and guide you to the right solution that will elevate your life. I truly find it an honor to work with the amazing clients that I serve and I look forward to meeting with you too.

Family Counseling

  • Sometimes the challenges you are facing require more than individual counseling. Family counseling works to develop connection and harmony in the home.
