I have over 14 years of practice with clients experiencing problems with blended families, gay/lesbian relationships, intergenerational issues, self-esteem and personal growth, conflict management, couples communication and intimacy concerns, divorce, parental coaching, addiction and recovery, and the management of grief and loss. I have a special focus on working with LGBTQ clients. I work with clients who have been experiencing emotional issues (depression, anxiety, compulsion) and trouble coping with life transitions.
I offer an integrative, strength-based approach to help clients develop their own voices and pursue their unique paths to individual fulfillment. My approach is collaborative and relational with a focus on the holistic health of my clients.
In addition to being a marriage and family therapist, I am retired U. S. Navy and I have an appreciation for the challenges of military life, active duty and veterans.
