Community-Based Services

In my practice of therapy, I focus first and foremost on the development of an open, supportive, and collaborative relationship with clients. As a marriage and family therapist, I take a systemic approach to both looking at and resolving problems-- that is, we look at all aspects of life and relationships to improve symptoms and life satisfaction. Drawing on my background in marriage and family therapy, I use systemic and narrative approaches to engage in collaborative work with clients. We work together in a non-judgmental stance to reduce suffering, gain insight, and develop practical approaches to make positive change.

I treat a variety of issues regarding family conflict, relationships, and marriage, as well as other issues ranging from depression and anxiety to trauma, life transitions, and more. I am an LGBTQIA+ friendly provider.
