My Ideal Client

Are you in a marriage or family that is struggling to find its way? If so, I am glad you are here. Relationships can be a source of great happiness and also be a cause of unlimited hurt. Are your children struggling with family or life events? Are they having a hard time coping with changes? My goal is to help you or your child navigate your relationships and improve your overall well-being. I am here to help you reach your goals and enhance your objectives.

My Approach to Helping

I am here to listen and walk alongside you without judgment and help you work through life's many challenges. My goal is to create an atmosphere where you feel comfortable and safe. I use Strength-Based, Person-Centered, and Emotionally Focused therapies. I work with children, teenagers, adults, families, and couples with issues ranging from anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, and difficult life transitions. I have strong foundational knowledge and have been trained in play therapy and parent-child relationships. I believe that everyone has the ability to heal, grow, and create a better life for themselves, and sometimes all they need is a little help.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a Marriage and Family registered Intern, I have experience working with children, families, and couples. My personal experience as a wife and a mother of four children has helped me gain insight into life’s challenges. I am especially interested in working with couples that need support with other life transitions and relationship problems. I am also really passionate about working with children and helping navigate the issues that challenge them.

Issues I Treat


  • Child or Adolescent Issues External link

    I enjoy helping families struggling with children and adolescent issues, from behavioral issues to feelings of depression and anxiety, to help them find ways to resolve their problems. I have training in play therapy for children as young as 3 years old. I also enjoy working with children who have physical or emotional disabilities. I'm here to help the child and family navigate through these difficult times that they may face.

  • Parenting External link

    Parenting can be hard on a couple's relationship. I can help you come together and parent on the same page while building stronger bonds with your children. I have additional training in parent-child therapy, and I am knowledgable in child and parent relationships and child developmental stages.
