As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I work to uncover the root of the issues by examining the whole picture of your life and your family, looking for solutions to the underlying problems that are causing chaos in your life. I utilize a holistic systems approach that focuses on the strengths you and your family bring to the table. We will collaborate to explore your past, present, and future through a safe and supportive environment. I tailor the therapeutic experience to your unique situation to ensure the best quality care possible.
I actively work with children and families, but also enjoy couples and teens. I have experience in Play Therapy, and am pursuing certification as a Play Therapist. I also provide Christian/Faith-Based Counseling for those interested.

Let's face it. Life can get complicated, and that's where I come in. Let me provide you with a safe place where you can pour out your heart. I would love to hear your story and provide step-by-step support as we navigate your experience together. My goal is to provide a collaborative and holistic approach in a safe, welcoming space to empower you throughout the therapeutic process. By exploring the past and present, we gain perspective and valuable insight into present struggles. I match my therapeutic interventions to your personal needs. I will provide skills and psychoeducation to help you navigate the present and create a brighter tomorrow.
