I provide assessment and treatment for individuals struggling with depression, anxiety disorders, self-esteem, mood disorders, life transitions and substance use disorders. I have specialized training in marital and family therapy where I utilize the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy. I am also a certified PREPARE/ENRICH facilitator and provide pre-marital and couples counseling where I work with couples to navigate the challenges and triumphs that may impact relationships. I have a passion for working with young adults, women and families impacted by divorce and separation and individuals navigating the challenges of single parenting, dating and relationships.
I believe that individuals are inherently capable and have resilience and strength within that therapy can help them to pull from and to utilize in meaningful ways. I use a collaborative approach tailored to meet the specific needs of each client. I incorporate the use of family systems modalities, The Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and substance abuse specific modalities. I offer faith-based counseling upon request.
I am passionate about the work do and I strive to build trusting therapeutic relationships with my clients. I offer a warm, comforting, non-judgmental environment where clients can feel safe to navigate obstacles and to overcome difficulties to facilitate healing, growth and change to not only live, but to live well.
