As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I work with individuals, couples, parents, college students, families and groups. My specialties include communication and relationship issues, secrets, conflict, separation or divorce, trauma, life transitions, anger, depression, anxiety, singleness, self esteem, body image, disordered eating, and chronic illness. Previously worked 7 years in a general hospital medical center, trained in EMDR therapy, and rape crisis intervention. My role as your therapist is to support, direct, encourage and challenge you in gaining clarity, understanding, insight, courage and peace of mind. My style is strength based as I help you to identify and utilize resources within yourself and within your life. We work together to help you understand the positive and negative impact of the systems in your life such as the relational, medical, financial, cultural, spiritual and physical components. Therapy should help you find answers to questions and experience strength, confidence and the life you wish to live.
