Welcome! Thank you for taking this step towards this journey of growth. I believe that the relationships we develop with ourselves and others are the essence of meaning and fulfillment in our lives. I invite you to learn more about me and my dedication toward helping clients at all stages in life to maximize their potential.
I begin each new client journey with a focus on building a collaborative relationship so that I may tailor therapy to individual needs. I strive to provide a non-judgmental environment to help clients explore deeper thoughts and feelings. You will find that conversations with me are warm and comforting, but also direct. Success in therapy comes from both an artful understanding of the needs of the soul as well using scientifically-proven techniques to enhance growth. I apply these therapeutic principles to individuals, couples, and children.
For adults and couples, my practice applies evidence-based principles of emotionally focused therapy (EFT) and the Gottman approach to improve relationships. In EFT, we examine how attachment affects our interactions and how it can be used to strengthen emotional bonds. Through the Gottman approach, we gain deeper insight into the relationship dynamic and practice tools to work through conflict and increase intimacy, respect, and affection. I may also use techniques based on internal family systems therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and somatic experiencing therapy depending on your needs.
For children, I value working closely with parents and caretakers in order to provide the most supportive environment for the child’s success. I love connecting with children through play therapy, sand tray therapy, and art therapy.

A little about me
When I’m not in sessions, I enjoy spending time traveling and learning about various cultures, cooking and trying new cuisines, country swing dancing, and spending time with family and friends.
