Personal Statement

The heart of my graduate level training is in couples and family therapy and because of this I approach my work with clients through the framework of the family system. I believe helping people understand the family system and how it affects their mental health as well as their values and beliefs is essential to the therapeutic process. I am a firm believer in play and creative expression for all ages. I like bringing fun into the therapy room. I believe having fun is fundamental for a person’s individual well being as well as their relational well being.

Who I Serve

Adolescents, LGBTQ+, couples, and families with issues of transitioning to high school, low self-worth, behavior problems, anxiety, as well as coping with change after divorce or loss of family member.
