Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.” –David Richo

Are you experiencing difficulty in your relationships, or suffering from a traumatic experience? I am ready to help you find the path to healing. I offer an open and accepting space in which you can be, or discover, your most authentic self. I work alongside you in your journey of deeper introspection and greater self-awareness. It is my goal to understand each individual’s experience and provide you the tools you need to pursue a healthier and more fulfilling life.

My experience working with individuals, couples and families in the areas of relationships, trauma and addiction are some of the issues in which I specialize. As a veteran of the US Marine Corps, I offer insights to veterans, active duty military members and their families, including experience in the areas of PTSD and deployment related issues.

I am trained to help those who have been through traumatic experiences utilizing an extensively researched and effective treatment, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is an integrative psychotherapy approach. To date, EMDR therapy has helped millions of people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress.
