I am a licensed Professional Counselor specializing in individuals (adolescents and adults), couples and families. I have a particular passion for working with parents of Step/Blended Families, those struggling with emotional isolation, lack of connection, ineffective communication, stress, depression, anxiety, or low self-worth. My approach blends insight, problem solving, creating new awareness and identifying strategies for change.
My background, experience and training includes certifications in Step/Blended Family Counseling and Trauma. I have been trained in EMDR, CBT, DBT and the Highly Sensitive Person. My approach with couples is based on advanced training through the Gottman Institute which provides tools to support/repair troubled marriages and committed relationships and strengthens happy ones.
My training also includes five years working specifically with struggling adolescents and their families to increase family connection, positive problem solving skills and self-esteem.
