As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I offer therapy services to help people discover more satisfying ways of living. Because human relationships play an enormous role in our social, emotional, and mental health, improving them is a major focus of treatment, and can be a key component in reducing problems like depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and more. Therapy can be a valuable tool for self-discovery and greater self-understanding (which may also improve your relationship with yourself!). My philosophy is to meet each of my patients with honesty, respect, and the understanding that whoever we are and wherever we come from, we all search for a sense of wholeness, and a desire to establish meaningful connections with others. 


In order to reduce our hurt and suffering, I believe we must look to the stories or narratives we have created about ourselves that restrict and limit us from becoming who we truly want to be.  By becoming aware that we are not shackled to others’ opinions, old beliefs and behaviors that keep us stuck in the past, therapy may lead to new possibilities for peace, wellness, and balance in our lives.

approach

My therapeutic approach is client-centered, with a strong emphasis on mindfulness.  My work is based upon these beliefs:

●  We are each capable of growth and change.

●  By learning to live in the present moment as often as we are able, we can begin to let go of painful experiences in our past, and reduce our anticipation and worry about the future. 

●  Seeking help is a positive and courageous step toward sorting through our confusion, letting go of our suffering, and developing openness to new possibilities.

●  Good therapy is all about collaboration and partnership.  It is a process that requires the full engagement of both patient and therapist, working together with mutual respect.

●  People are experts on themselves.  I trust that you will teach me what I need to know in order to help you identify and achieve your goals.
