Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I have been practicing Marriage & Family Therapy since 2018. I have a Masters in Marital & Family therapy and a Masters of Divinity. I have worked with at-risk youth, high-conflict divorced families, individuals struggling with grief, and I have provided Christian-based therapy to those who have requested it. I have also worked with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families in these settings.
Through my studies, I have learned that therapy is a collaborative process. In order for you to achieve your goals, we must work as a team. It's just like the parent-child relationship, or the spousal relationship - in order for change to happen, both parties must put in the effort.
When I was a senior in high school. I took a psychology class. I was fascinated with it. I was so intrigued by psychology that I told my friends that I wanted to be a marriage counselor. It took me a couple different majors and degrees to get to where I always knew I was supposed to be.
“Cognitive therapy seeks to alleviate psychological tensions by correcting misconceptions. By correcting erroneous beliefs, we can end the overreactions “ – Aaron Beck
My approach to therapy is influenced by Aaron Beck who founded Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Many people struggle with misconceptions about themselves. These misconceptions are created by the environment. I use CBT to help people change those misconceptions so that they can feel better about themselves and have a more positive outlook on life.
I also have experience and training in the following:
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
I am a Prepare-Enrich Facilitator
I have completed Level 1 Clinical Training for Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
