I provide psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and families. My areas of focus include couples dynamics, parenting and family interaction, and coping skills to manage depression, anxiety, anger, and low self-esteem. I believe that lasting change comes through the experience of genuine connection and understanding within relationships, along with a readiness for change and personal growth.
Whatever your present concerns, relief and healing are possible. Together we can change and strengthen your emotional life while creating new and life-giving ways of being in relationships with yourself and with others.

More purpose and less stress
Sometimes life throws us a curve ball and some of us just don't know how to play catch. Maybe you're feeling lonely, empty, or have no energy. You notice that your job or school is stressing you out. Maybe things are going well in your life but you feel incomplete. Feelings of anxiety, hurt, anger, or depression are present and you are unsure of how to make things better. Perhaps you are giving your all to people you care about or love but feel used and depleted. Individual therapy can explore these situations, set realistic goals and solutions so that your life is more purposeful and meaningful. Individual therapy is helpful for adults and teens.
People in relationships seek counseling for any number of reasons, from power struggles and communication problems, to sexual dissatisfaction and infidelity. No matter how troubled a relationship seems, you can turn it around if you learn to create the change that matters. Couples therapy can restore or enhance relationships by re-establishing trust, strengthening fondness and admiration, increasing friendship and intimacy, improving emotional safety and communication, calming conflict, and creating shared meaning and purpose.
I have expertise in a number of evidenced-based treatment approaches and will adapt my approach to each situation and person. My three main-styles are Solution-Focused, Cognitive Behavioral, and Gottman Therapy for Couples. Visit my approach page to learn more. I am happy to discuss each throughout the treatment planning process.
A tree is a symbol of antiquity and immense and enduring strength. A general symbolic meaning of a tree can be interpreted as protection. A widespread symbol of the tree is the tree of life, it's body rooted in earth with its crown dancing in the sky. A tree is symbolic of nurturing energies if it is a fruit bearing tree. More tree symbolism and symbolic meanings of the tree represent...a recovery from illness, ambition or wishes fulfilled, having to do with family, blessings, good fortune, stability, shelter and security. - Presley Love
