Individual Therapy

Finding the right therapist who will understand you without judgment can be a daunting task.  You want someone who understands you and your unique challenges.  You want someone who will be safe while helping you transform your life, make sense of your struggles, and know when to listen and when to be collaborative.

I believe that each person has the ability to learn and grow, and achieve their best self.  Working with individual men or women, together we can explore and discover what barriers are keeping you from achieving the goals you are reaching for and work to dissolve those barriers that are holding you back from success.

Family Therapy

Family Therapy sessions help families develop positive attitudes towards life’s most complex and challenging circumstances.  While maintaining each individual's integrity and character, together we can work to improve your families' communication, resolve conflicts, and build trust.  We will work to reclaim or rebuild your family connection, using each family member's natural strengths to create the kinship you have been working towards or hoping for.


Two people live together, care for each other, weather the storms together
—and one day they discover they cannot live without each other.

Fall in love and you can fall out of love.

Create love and it will last forever.

Couples Therapy

Trust is the foundation to a good relationship.  In today's world, movies, books, and media can make it difficult to know what a real relationship is like, and what it takes to make it successful.  Clear communication, trust, emotional and physical intimacy, connection, and safety takes work.  Whether you have been together for 20 weeks or 20 years, I can help you have the relationship that you desire and deserve.

Therapy works best when it both supports and challenges each individual.  I value a space where two people can feel safe and strengthened without a fear of feeling or being judged.  A place where exploration, provocation, and interaction facilitates an end to pain, loss, or hurt while building a strong foundation in meaningfulness and relief.

Together we can heal your past, bring forth the success you may have had at one time, or create the relationship you have always dreamed of.

What To Expect At Your Visit

“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers.  It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.” Shannon L. Alder


Welcome, and thank you for visiting my page.


Perhaps you're tolerating or healing from depression or feeling anxious and worried.  Maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to live. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to help you get back to your essence, create change, and find meaning in your life.


Therapy is a process of growth, healing, and self-discovery.  In therapy, we will work collaboratively to explore your inner world.  I want to help you understand your thoughts and feelings better so that you can create change and find confidence, inner-strength, joy, meaning, and relief.

My style is conversational and I provide insight and feedback with compassion and curiosity, in a safe environment free of judgment.  I use an approach tailored to each client, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and strength-based theories to help my clients explore the concerns unique to them.


Contact Me

One of the things that I love most about being a Marriage and Family Therapist is being able to help people make the changes they want to have in their lives. It is a special thing to get to help other people in a real way, in a way that can empower a person, couple, or family to live their best lives, whatever that means to them (healing pain, gaining hope, or realizing goals), with compassion and understanding, and without judgment. I am honored to be the person that gets to take this journey with others. Contact me today to learn more and schedule a session.
