Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Level 2 (CCTP-II) Solutions-Focused and CBT/DBT oriented clinician for adults and adolescents coping with significant life transitions. Clinical Fellow at the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT).

My work is solutions oriented and focused on (1) adults struggling with adjustments to sudden or milestone life changes, (2) families raising children with ADHD needing support in resolving concerns and strengthening positive relationships at home, and (3) family therapy for adult children and parents experiencing inter-generational cultural dissonance, especially connected to life transitions.

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist my experience includes nearly a decade of working with dual diagnosis clients using evidence based practices. My theoretical orientation include Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Positive Psychology and Solutions Focused Therapy (SFT). I am a Certified Level One Solutions Focused Therapist, Certified Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Professional, and completed the Level One Gottman Method for Couples Counseling. Additional training includes: Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Level One Certification (specifically focused on eating disorders).

My style is collaborative, client centered, and culturally sensitive.
