I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years of experience in mental health. I am ready to assist you with what you would like to work on in your journey. I work with issues related to addiction, trauma, family issues, stress, grief, loss, PTSD, women's issues, and relationship issues. I approach treatment through a humanistic approach which is client-centered. I specialize in Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Through treatment, we will work together on developing mutual goals that can be worked on during and outside of our sessions.

I love too cook and learn about different cultures.
I start my day with my gratitude journal. It keeps me in a positive mood and motivates me to go about my day.
