As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I understand that we grow and heal within the context of our relationships. I enjoy working with adolescents, individuals, couples, and families. I am passionate about helping my clients bring their most authentic and whole self to their relationship experience. In our work together, I will help you access deeper, and sometimes neglected, parts of yourself to improve the connection that you experience with the people who matter most to you. I have experience working with grief and loss as a palliative counselor. I have come to understand loss occurs in many unique forms ranging from losing aspects of one’s self to battling invisible illnesses. In this work, I will walk alongside you as you learn to navigate the dark, enigmatic, and often ambiguous aspects of life and yourself.
I aspire to cultivate a safe and supportive space to bravely encounter deep feelings and conversations. I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and various experiential modalities to guide us in exploring the emotional aspects of yourself and the emotional dance that can take over in your relationship. While this process can at times feel uncomfortable and even scary, it is within discomfort that true growth takes place. Together, I will help you build insight into yourself and your relationships, as well as help you gain the tools to communicate your values and emotions effectively. I will be with you through each step of the process. I will be here for the smiles, the laughter, and the tears.
I received my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Mercer University. I also have a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. I am pursuing licensure under the clinical supervision of Alex Peskin, LMFT.
