    I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. I have experience working with trauma, anxiety, depression, substance use, individuals, teens, children and families. I believe that every person holds inner knowledge of what they need, or untapped intuition. I work to help people find it and learn to use it. I believe evidence based interventions, acceptance and attunement promotes the spiritual work needed to return you back to yourself and your life.

    Healing begins when you acknowledge that feelings of pain, isolation or fear are too much to carry alone. The journey starts by speaking the truth about what you want from life. Allowing yourself the opportunity to experience clarity and understanding is a gift no one can take away. I offer clients the opportunity to explore and identify goals for treatment by providing a space where honesty, openness and a sense of humor allow healing to begin.

    Does it seem that you cannot break free from the past, but are fearful of the future? Does your emotional pain seem to overshadow the joyful life you wish to live? Yes, from birth to death our lives can be touched by traumatic events. But we humans are resilient and foster the capacity to heal and to grow. I offer a safe and respectful therapeutic collaboration. As working partners, we will discover your own individual path to healing as we explore your innate courage and inspiration. We will work to discover the authentic you, to achieve psychological growth and a sense of well-being.

    Our lives can often become overwhelming, leaving us feeling anxious, depressed or lost, without a clear direction to go. Often we know we don't want to feel like this but we're unsure how to change it. This is where therapy can help! Therapy provides a safe, honest place for people to explore their problems, collaborate to create solutions, and ultimately feel better. Life is meant to be enjoyed, full of happiness, and fulfillment. Topped with a good amount of humor! I want to help you have the life you want.

    Relationships make the world go round. Do you struggle in any of your relationships; work, friends, family, significant other or children? How does your relationship with others affect how you feel about yourself, how you relate to others, how you trust them? Are you the parent that you thought you would be? Do your relationships stop you from going after the things you dream about? Focusing on partner relationships, parenting, and family dynamics. Together we can look at how past relationships and experiences affect current circumstances, how substance abuse affects all members of the family, co-dependency and more.

    I have been trained in family systems theory, attachment theory, and parenting. I also specialize in addiction treatment, individual and family. I have worked with families affected by substance abuse for many years, the addicts and the members including the children. Addressing the many roles each family member plays to make the family work.

    My passion is about building up the family to be the foundation or rock each member needs. Helping each individual find their strengths and gifts that they personally possess. Being the best husband/wife and father/mother they can be. Together we can identify your family goals and make a plan on how to achieve them. I am currently taking new clients
