Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist


I love working with families and couples because I believe that all families deserve to find the peace, joy and acceptance of one another that sets each member up to be the best version of themselves.

There is complexity and richness in the family and couple system as each person comes with their own unique set of ideas, challenges and strengths. I want to help couples and families build understanding and compassion and find the balance to create a foundation of safety, comfort and support from which they achieve their full potential.

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy is a key part of what I love to do and can be the starting place for a changed life and the beginnings of a new pattern for generations to come. The Gottman Method gives couples the confidence to rebuild in forward-thinking ways and gives couples the tools to achieve lasting change.

I feel the excitement as the work begins to turn into new habits and mindsets and the family interactions become healthier and more connected. I feel pride in empowering couples and families to change and grow throughout their lives with the foundation that they learned using the Gottman Method.


One of the strengths that I bring to my clients is that I am a student of life. I am always learning, always curious and thoroughly enjoy the unique nuances of the individuals that I meet.

I have worked with couples, families and individuals from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. I have experience with eating disorders, mental illness in the family, military family life and blended families. I strive to bring my training and experience to each individual that I work with in a genuine and caring effort to ease suffering and improve relationships and individual happiness on the journey of life.
