LMHC, LPC, LPCC
I specialize in helping couples with conflict and communication issues, broken trust and infidelity, low emotional intimacy or sexual dissatisfaction. I treat individuals who experience anxiety, depression, relationship or sexual issues.
I strive to create a safe nonjudgmental space for all types of couples and individuals. My casual style of doing therapy is supportive and effective. I use only proven best practices, effective tools, and techniques. I work with clients to create a custom plan based on their unique personalities, values, needs, and goals. My eclectic approach is warm and empathic, practical and successful.
