Learn more about therapy with me!

Family can be complex. Sometimes, communication is difficult to navigate. When you find yourself in a state of distress, fatigue, confusion or uncertainty, having someone to reach out to can certainly be relieving. We can talk about what you are going through, experiencing, and learn new ways to move forward with a new lens. I offer an integrative approach to therapy that uses a variety of approaches to therapy to address each individual situation, uniquely.

My use of applying an integrative approach to therapy is based on the client(s)’ needs and can be worked out with each client. As one who specializes in Marriage and Family Therapy, I certainly understand the intrinsically different dynamics that individuals and families might encounter. With an open mind to finding the right approach for those who come to see me, my goal is to find the right approach for the client(s)’ to tackle their current circumstance(s). I also provide the choice of engaging in online therapy to meet your moment by moment needs!
