Hi! I am a LCSW with 3+ years of therapy experience. I have worked in several areas of expertise including depression, anxiety, stress management, addictions, trauma, parenting, relationships, domestic violence, and communication and boundaries. In couple's counseling, I have focused on how these areas of concern affect a relationship, how to healthily set boundaries, recognizing signs of domestic abuse, parenting approaches, and how changing beliefs leads to a change in behavior that may improve a couple's relationship. I take a client centered, strengths based approach when meeting couples, focusing on solutions as well as hidden strengths, resources, and couples' primary areas of concern. I come from a community mental health background, in which I learned to identify immediate needs, create a trusting relationship with each individual in the relationship as well as maintaining a non-biased approach working on the couple's goals. I use person-first language and take the perspective that it is not about what someone has "done wrong," it is about what has happened to a person, and in turn what each person brings to the relationship. I have experience specifically with domestic violence issues, working with perpetrators of domestic violence as well as focusing on communication and boundary issues in relationships. Each couple is unique, and I will tailor my approach to best meet your needs.
