Additionally, I have certifications that specialize in various modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Managing and Adapting Practice (MAP), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Military Families are Resistant (MFAR), Seeking Safety (SS), Guided Meditation and Motivational Interviewing. I work with couples who experience relationship issues, including communication, infidelity and, family system issues. I also support clients who are experiencing marital issues, parenting issues, teen concerns, life transitions, grief and loss, abuse, crisis, cultural and adjustment issues.
I have extensive experience with couples, parenting and group therapy. I have worked with couples, families and their family systems to set goals, identify issues and find balance.

My approach is collaborative, engaging and reflective while maintaining a balanced approach to the family system.
I provide tools and skills that can be used in managing life’s challenges. I work with couples in a neutral, reflective and supportive environment that encourages both individual and couple’s growth.
