As a marriage and family therapist, I can work with you individually or as a family to help you design a life that feels more authentic and fulfilling. I can help your family shift communication patterns and feel safer in your relationships. 


As a military spouse and former special education teacher, I can help you navigate the resources available to you and support you as you curate what is working and what is not. I understand the challenges of uncertainty and feeling overwhelmed with all the roles we take on. 


 As a mother, I will listen to your honesty and encourage you to recognize how shame and guilt can impact your ability to be fully present with your family. I understand how overwhelming it can be to balance the roles we carry. 

As a fellow human, I know how scary it can be to step out of the routine and busy-ness of life to get back in touch with yourself and your values. I can offer compassion, insights, and encouragement to help you find that best version of  yourself that you're seeking.

I do not and will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of my activities, operations, or provisions of behavioral health and mental health. Every human is unique and deserves to take up space in this world, I am honored to hold space for you. 

My approach 

During our first session, we'll look at the big picture.. Your past, your family, your current symptoms. We'll explore your goals for our time together. You'll have a chance to get to know me a bit, you'll get a feeling for how we might connect. My approach to therapy begins with this connection.


In individual therapy, I utilize Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) techniques to explore your values and look for areas of misalignment.  

The 6 principles of ACT are:

  • Cognitive defusion- techniques for distancing oneself from negative or disturbing thoughts. 

  • Expansion and acceptance- creating space for and accepting emotions. 

  • Contact and connection with the present moment.

  • The Observing Self.

  • Values clarification.

  • Committed action (Harris, 2006; Harris, 2007)

I weave these techniques and concepts into our work together, but you are still in the drivers seat. If something we are doing isn't landing, I create opportunities to explicitly discuss what is or isn't working. I want this to be a space where you practice asking for what you need. 

Mindfullness is a way of befriending ourselves and our experiences.
