Biography – “I provide a very safe and calm environment for you to share your experiences of life with me.”
My journey in wellness as a marriage and family therapist started 20 years ago. I enjoy working with couples, individuals, and teens. My approach is from a mind and body perspective, using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, yoga, and meditation.
I am also experienced working with individuals and couples who struggle with sexual issues. My style is kind, patient, empowering, and encouraging. I provide a very safe and calm environment for you to share your experiences of life with me.
My areas of specialty incude: abuse/violence, sexual issues, stress, anxiety, depression, marital issues, couples issues, womens issues, life transitions, communication, and anger management. I enjoy helping people create new life habits in order to balance their life and make it more fulfilling, and I believe in supporting each client along the path of their own healing journey.
