About Me


I went into the field of psychotherapy with a passion for people.  I am highly relational, warm and accepting.  I try to help people gain insight into how the past has shaped them for the better and for the worse. 

I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Excelsior College in 2005 and a Masters of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Western Seminary in 2008.   

I am also an Adjunct Professor at my alma mater, Western Seminary.  I am a learner by nature and I love teaching students who are at the start of their own journey..  I try to communicate the same passion of teaching to my clients knowing we all have the capacity for growth. 

My specialities include:

  • Trauma
  • Grief and Loss
  • Depression,  Anxiety
  • Addiction and Recovery
  • Codependency
  • Communication Skills 
  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy
  • Mindfulness


Christian Counseling

For those who want to integrate a Christian faith based perspective into their therapy, I offer a Christian faith-based approach along with professional training in psychotherapy to address all areas of a person's life.  I am committed to helping you to experience healing and have a more balanced, meaningful life.  It is my honor to work with you on your journey.
