I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with more than 18 years of clinical experience, including more than two years of telehealth/online counseling experience. My background includes individual, relationship and family therapy as well as community education and professional in-service training. I am passionate about working with my clients in a collaborative and non-pathologizing manner that allows for a range of healing conversations in a safe and non-judgmental environment. My guiding approach to therapy focuses on seeing the problem as separate from the person. I believe that people are the experts of their lives and choose to sit in a place of curiosity to help people uncover already present strengths and/or develop new approaches to life's challenges. I love to laugh and believe that laughter can be the best medicine! At times, I may use humor (when appropriate) to create space to examine a problem. I truly enjoy the work I do with clients and am constantly learning from the journeys towards healing and understanding I take with those who consult me.
