I enjoy working with people from where they are and helping them move to where they want to be. I believe that life takes each of us on a journey and that journey will be filled with peaks and valleys. It is during those peaks and valleys that I can step in to help guide each person to move forward and grow with what life has to offer. I work with individuals, couples and families. I specialize in marriage and family therapy and Christian sex therapy.

I operate from a systems way of thinking. I believe that there are many aspects that can affect each individual and exploring these aspects best helps the individual. I use therapies such as CBT, DBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, EFT with couples and other modalities. I work with children ages 10+, adolescents, individuals, couples and families. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, divorce, marital separation, premarital counseling, marriage counseling, sexual issues including addiction, affairs, pornography, abuse and LGBTQ+, grief and other situations that may arise.
