I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have had the pleasure of working with a diverse population of client's in multiple settings including children as young as 4 to adults over the age of 65. I have done extensive work with parents to implement different strategies in their home to create a calmer and more connected environment. I have worked with both foster youth and parents during challenging periods of their lives to help them stabilize and keep their child or themselves in the home. In my more recent career I have had the pleasure of counseling parents who had a child five or younger and were experiencing difficulty in their personal lives due to parenting, or at times issues that were present prior to having children. I am trained and certified in EMDR (Eye Motion Desensitization and Reprocessing) through the Parnell Institute with an emphasis on attachment. I am also certified in IPT (Interpersonal Therapy) which is utilized to provide therapy to mothers during pregnancy as well as post-partum. I strive to provide a non-judgmental and client centered approach with all of my clients. I want you to feel comfortable and able to express yourself freely to work through this uncomfortable and difficult time in your life. My hope is that during our time together you will be able to see what feels like an unsurmountable obstacle in a new way. We will work together to implement new tools that turn your mountain into a mole hill and you will once again thrive.
