“I will push you to attain the highest level of inner peace you can reach while allowing you to set your goals throughout the process.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I was an elementary school teacher for many years before I dedicated myself to becoming a full-time mental health provider. I watched as the struggles of the home leaked their way into the classroom, presenting all sorts of difficulties for the children I taught. Understanding the source of much trouble for young people, I had a keen perspective on helping individuals navigate their own lives and relationships. It was time to shift gears and address the next generation's mental health at its source: Inside the home.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am driven to help you accomplish your goals. I will push you to attain the highest level of inner peace you can reach while allowing you to set your goals throughout the process.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
With regard to treating individuals, I believe people want to be better. I believe that our difficulties can get us stuck in the mud, but we truly desire to navigate challenges with strength and composure. I believe everyone has the power to tap into that inner strength and grow one step at a time. When treating couples and families, I believe that arguments, resentment, and pain in relationships mask deep rooted attachment fears that we possess. I guide the individuals in relationships to access the deep emotional struggles that are influencing the family system as a whole.
