Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Children, Teens, Adults, Couples, Families
I have a passion for helping people re-experience themselves. Sometimes it is necessary to share your story with someone who can be objective and give you an alternative perspective.
Life comes with many struggles, and there are times when managing them can seem difficult. We imagine our feelings as chains that hold us down. The energy we once had to live and love, no longer seems available.
When we walk in shame and fear we give others our power and become powerless. We often fall into old patterns that don’t work for us any longer. We can feel stuck. We don’t know how to make changes or what to do.
I am here to support you and find your way through these challenges and re-experience your joy and self as you are meant to be.
Who I work with:
I am experienced and passionate about working with families, couples, teens, children, and the faith-based community.
I also have over 30 years of experience working with addiction. I specialize in working with individuals, couples, and families coping with addiction issues.
How I work:
I offer a holistic, integrative, trauma-informed approach. Our time together will explore the root causes of these struggles, and how and why they are manifesting in your life.
I often utilize models of therapy including Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC), Child parent psychotherapy (CPP), Trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT).
When you leave my office, my hope is that you feel seen, heard, and understood.
