Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
I work with people who:
*Want the quality of their relationships to improve.
*Desire to understand themselves better.
*Keep repeating unhealthy and unsatisfying patterns.
*Are looking to navigate a current relationship or life transition.
*Feel stuck, unmotivated, or struggle to take action.
I am an expert in: Couple & Family Dynamics, Brene Brown's Resiliency Theory
But I am NOT the expert of you.
I have lots of training and experience but my main job is to help you tap into your own expertise.
I genuinely enjoy building an authentic honest relationship with my clients. My goal is for you to feel heard, seen, understood, valued, and we will probably laugh a little bit along the way.
I will make vital connections for you to help gain a deeper awareness of yourself, your wounds, and current behavior. Together we will create the spring board you need to see the work we do come to life.
Sometimes it takes all the energy you have just show up.
Therapy can be both empowering and challenging at the same exact time. Growth always comes with discomfort. My room becomes your safe haven to honestly explore, challenge yourself, and celebrate your victories. I genuinely look forward to connecting with you!
