I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, dedicated to providing compassionate and supportive counseling and psychotherapy for my clients. I work with individuals for both short term counseling and longer term depth psychotherapy.

As a couples counselor, I provide counseling services for couples dealing with a wide variety of relationship issues, including couples struggling with high conflict or trying to recover from infidelity. I have trained in EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples) with Sue Johnson. I also help parents resolve issues or conflicts around their parenting, and develop skills in dealing effectively with their children.
