About this pro

I have worked with all walks of life – including families, couples, and individuals. My experience allows me to apply my therapeutic skills to several different populations. I have worked with grief, high-conflict divorced families, children diagnosed with autism and their families, and at-risk youth.

I believe that therapy helps people heal from present and past wounds, empowering them for struggles to come. There are many things in life that try to negatively influence thoughts and behaviors. My mission as a therapist is to help clients to identify those negative influences and help them make positive changes so they discover who they are, bring in purpose and fulfillment, with the overall goal to live their best life yet. Every person has the ability to positively change, and I will collaboratively work with each client to help them do that.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When I get a new referral, I typically send an email first with my phone number or call if an email is not provided. I like to send emails with general information about my fees and if the potential client is okay with my fees. I would make contact over the phone for a free consult. This is to see if we are a good fit. After that, I proceed with setting up the first appointment followed by another email with new client paperwork that must be filed out and sent back (or brought in) prior to or at the time of the first appointment.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been practicing Marriage & Family Therapy since 2018. I have a Masters in Marital & Family therapy and a Masters of Divinity. I have worked with at-risk youth, high-conflict divorced families, individuals struggling with grief, and I have provided Christian-based therapy to those who have requested it. I have also worked with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families in these settings.
I am a Prepare-Enrich Facilitator and have completed the Level 1 Clinical Training for Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
Through my studies, I have learned that therapy is a collaborative process. In order for you to achieve your goals, we must work as a team. It's just like the parent-child relationship, or the spousal relationship - in order for change to happen, both parties must put in the effort.

I also use Eye-Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) to treat and relieve PTSD, acute stress, and anxiety symptoms resulting from traumatic and other life experiences. EMDR therapy can produce elevated emotional and somatic reactions during and after treatment. A typical client experiences a 60-90% reduction in stress symptoms as a result of completed treatment.
