Personal Statement

I believe you are the expert on you: you know your thoughts, feelings, fears, hopes, and goals. As a collaborative therapist, I want to come alongside you and become an expert with you. I can help identify your struggles, clarify the obstacles that get in your way, sharpen your goals, and develop tools specifically for you – all within the safety of a strong therapeutic relationship.

Through the therapy process, I can help you gain the insight, strength, and compassion to live the life you’ve always desired. If you’ve faced crippling anxiety or fear, relationship conflicts that don’t seem to get any better, or inability to be as happy or productive as you believe you can be, I can help.

As Licensed Marriage & Family Therapy (LMFT), I am well-equipped to work with you as an individual, you with your significant other, or you with your family. I care deeply about people, have a lot of hope even when you may have lost it, and strongly believe that you can overcome your obstacles to achieve your goals.
