I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, experienced in working with individuals, families, adolescents and young children. My clinical focus is helping others to explore their relationships using hope and compassion to promote healing and well-being. I believe in people’s inherent ability to help one another heal both individually and interpersonally, to consider alternative perspectives, both of which will guide them in making the changes they want to see in their lives. I utilize a collaborative therapeutic approach that emphasizes fairness and acknowledgment of each other’s efforts in relationships; to help improve interactions and mutual understanding that are so vital to our feelings of safety and trust in relationships.
I have experience working in a variety of settings from residential treatment for adjudicated adolescents to outpatient agencies to inpatient hospital settings, all serving individuals, couples, and families. I help families and individuals consider the ways culture, family and life experiences, as well as aspects of one’s identity impact our view of the world and others.
