Hello and welcome!
So glad you stopped by. Trying to find a new therapist can be both an exciting and sometimes intimidating or scary process, but so worth it! Having the right person is important and changes everything, so feel free to snoop around and see if we might be a good fit for each other and let me know if you have any questions. I would love to talk with you.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) I believe that we are all a product of our experiences, our families, and the people we have met and interacted with along the way. Each of our pains or struggles is a compilation of many different interactions that form our own beliefs and thoughts about the world and ourselves. We are complicated and beautiful people!
I do not believe that people are broken and need to be fixed. I think we are all acting out of our best abilities in any given moment. Sometimes the ways we learned to function as children or in an earlier relationship no longer satisfy us or may even make things worse. In order to adapt, we need to understand the root of our belief and work together to find new ways to meet our current goals. This is possible through sharing your story, finding ways to be vulnerable, learning new/different behaviors, having greater understandings of yourself, and committing to change. One of the reasons I love being a therapist is that I get the pleasure of joining your journey as you discover this path and recognize the lovable and valuable qualities about yourself, while rewiring your brain to more effective behaviors and interactions!
I have worked in a variety of settings as therapist, including private practice, intensive outpatient services in hospital units, and as a family therapist at an adolescent residential treatment facility. I enjoy having multiple people in the room, working with families and couples, and having a space where everyone feels heard. I am trained in EMDR, Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and am Prepare and Enrich Certified.
I work with teen and adult clients experiencing anxiety, depression, self-harming behaviors, suicidal ideation, family conflict, marriage conflict, infidelity, trauma/PTSD, borderline personality disorder, premarital counseling and more.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me. I hope to meet you and do this exciting and challenging work together!
