My passion is working alongside individuals, couples, and families on their journey towards authentic and holistic health, wholeness, and happiness. My specialty is in Marriage / Couples counseling.

My particular areas of interest include: Marriage / Couples counseling, Pre-Marriage counseling , Re-marriage and blended families, Marriage repair, Pregnancy (teen / crisis), Parenting concerns, Anxiety, and Depression .

I am a former U.S. Marine and my spouse is retired U.S. Navy and I enjoy working with military families, veterans, law enforcement officers, and first responders.

I believe every individual and their family is unique and so is their journey. Therefore, every therapy plan will be unique. I utilize many different interventions from different techniques based on a client’s individual needs and goals including: Art, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Family Therapy, Couples Therapy, Mindfulness-Based, Solution-Focused, Strengths-Based, and Spirituality techniques.

I believes that faith and spirituality can play a vital role in the counseling and healing process. My approach to therapy is Christian, collaborative, systemic, and holistic. I strive to be compassionate and non-judgmental and to empower my clients in their growth and healing journeys.
