With a primary focus on couples and family counseling, it is my goal provide a safe, non-judgmental, and relaxed environment in which my clients can work to improve their relationships. I believe that quality relationships hold the key to our mental and often physical well-being. My approach to therapy views relationship challenges from a systemic model, meaning I consider relationship factors, family of origin, biological, and environmental factors when creating a treatment plan. I consider the couple or family as the “client” and the primary area of focus – not just one person. This perspective facilitates new understandings and opportunities to break free from the negative interactive cycles that contribute to relational distress.
I also work with individuals aged 14+ who are seeking to improve their well-being. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, social difficulties, grief and loss, or in the midst of a life transition, it is my goal to help you find solutions that are in alignment with the deepest part of your being and discover your full potential on the path to inner peace. I have experience with and welcome LGBTQIA+ individuals, couples, and families.
