Marriage & Family Therapy Intern

Are you or a family member struggling emotionally? Is this effecting different areas of your life? We all face challenges in our lives; having a supportive and nurturing person to help you through that journey can make all the difference. You are most likely seeking out therapy because you need something in your life to change. Congratulations on taking the first step to a more peaceful and happy life.

I enjoy working with a diverse population that includes adults, children and families. I have experience working with childhood disorders, parent training, autism, anxiety, trauma, and mood disorders. I specialize in working with families whose children are diagnosed with autism and other behavioral issues.

My goal is to provide you with the tools and insight you need to navigate challenges and promote positive change. I enjoy watching my clients and families grow, gain more control over their lives, and achieve happiness. I am happy to speak with you further to answer any additional questions you may have.
