Areas of Focus: Couples, Adolescents, and Families
For many years, I have enjoyed working with children, adolescents, couples, and families by providing both individual and family therapy. I work to provide a safe place of hope and healing for those struggling with trauma, anxiety, and depression as well as disconnect in relationships with others. Together, we maximize and build upon strengths to create skills needed to have a healthy relationship with self and others.
In addition, I am passionate about providing support to those who seek conflict resolution and crisis stabilization. I have worked with individuals re-entering the community after incarceration as well as adolescents who are at risk of out of home placement and are seeking encouragement, hope and guidance on rebuilding relationships. I use strength-based cognitive-behavioral approaches with spiritual values to honor your journey.

Areas of Focus:
Emotion Regulation Therapy
Psychological Testing/ADHD Assessment
I am experienced in helping adults and adolescents who experience problems regulating (managing) difficult emotions and internal experiences. I provide an accepting and validating therapeutic environment along with a set of specialized skills intended to help reduce the stigma, pain, and intensity of these emotions/experiences. This approach can be applied to the treatment of many different mental health challenges, including (but not limited to) generalized anxiety, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress, depression, eating disorders and body image dissatisfaction, anger management difficulties, and self-harming/self-injurious behaviors. In addition, I am skilled in helping couples overcome emotional barriers that are standing in the way of a fulfilling relationship and helping couples develop necessary skills to maintain emotional intimacy.
I am also able to provide psychological testing and interpretation using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventories, including the (MMPI-2) for adults ages 18 and older, and MMPI-A for adolescents ages 12-17.
