Message to clients

Navigating individual and family changes can be very difficult. I believe that professional support is an excellent way to begin to make shifts in our mindsets and to process changes in a meaningful way. I also believe that intentional cultivation in our personal lives fosters re-connection in our significant relationships and helps our families to thrive. As an experienced Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and educator, I can support you through life's challenges with the care and compassion that you deserve. Therapy is a powerful means of self-discovery and growth. I intend to meet you where you are in the midst of your journey and help you to figure out a path that's best for you.

Whether your marriage is struggling and you feel disconnected from your partner, you believe your children are "out of control", you are having a difficult time adjusting to a new addition to your family, or any issue in between, I am here to offer support. I have the knowledge and experience to educate you on principles of emotionally healthy living so that you can meet your goals of reconnecting and revitalizing relationships, reestablishing order in the home, and figuring out how to safeguard your relationship in the midst of experiencing fertility issues or adding a new addition to your family. Regardless of circumstances, life can be more enjoyable, marriages can thrive, and we can learn to embrace and enjoy the journey in new seasons.
