Master of Arts Marriage and Family Therapy – Expected Graduation Aug 2021

I provide a supportive, understanding, and healing environment for individuals, couples, and families. I have a passion and gift for people. I believe in a strength-based approach with emphasis on current functioning and skill building to seek positive solutions and work through problem areas to promote a healthier life.

I believe the therapeutic process can be creative and dynamic between many layers of each individual and the family system. By taking a systematic approach to struggles, it offers a depth of learning and understanding the can promote life-long changes for many individuals within the system.

It is important to create a special collaboration between a therapist and client. I firmly believe in recovery for everyone, whichever issue presents itself. For this collaboration, I value a person-centered approach while being ethical, competent, and culturally responsive. I have a creative therapeutic style that blends transgenerational, structural, narrative, and cognitive behavioral techniques.

I have over 26 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families through varies forums. I specialize in substance use, mental health, and overall health and wellness recovery areas.
