You don’t have to do it alone! As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I can help empower you to create the change you desire.
Over 10 Years of Experience
I have been a marriage and family therapist for over 19 years. I have extensive training in systemic couples and family therapy. I am passionate about being a marriage and family therapist because we take a non-judgmental, holistic look at the struggles that are happening in your life and focus on finding your own strengths to achieve the change you seek. One of the many benefits of seeing a couples/family therapist is that I look at the interactional patterns that are occurring in your life and advocate for the different perspectives that take place in relationships. As a therapist I have seen people empower themselves, their partners and their families by discussing the change they desire, and envisioning the future filled with hope. As your therapist my goal is to help you make that change, and start getting fulfillment from your life and your relationships.

What Is Family Therapy?
The AAMFT describes family therapy as:
A family’s patterns of behavior influences the individual and therefore may need to be a part of the treatment plan. In marriage and family therapy, the unit of treatment isn’t just the person – even if only a single person is interviewed – it is the set of relationships in which the person is imbedded.
