I am a marriage and family therapist and licensed clinical social worker with 15 years of experience in mental health. I am a former Marine and a mother of five children. I understand what it means to have multiple people observe the same event and give different recollections of the same event. I am a firm believer that the greatest challenge in relationships is a failure to effectively communicate. When working with couples, I focus on the words that are not being said which are generally tucked safely away underneath the shield of hurtful and embarrassing words that are being hurled between the partners.
My therapy style is integrative, which means I will use whatever therapeutic modality in my toolbox to assist my clients in actualizing their goals, while uncovering the problematic behaviors that resulted in them getting off track and I view each couple as the expert on their lives, and I work in collaboration with them to get them back on track.
I would be honored to assist you on your journey to find your best life.
