About

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and former registered nurse. I provide individual, couple and family therapy. The diversity in my personal and professional experience provides a solid background for my approach to therapy which encompasses knowledge, compassion, and experience. I provide therapy that is safe, informative, insightful, reflective, and experiential. Having experience as a process consultant, registered nurse, health educator, and therapist has influenced my philosophy and therapeutic approach. As a wife and mother, I have gained and continue to gain the most valuable life experiences. My professional training is grounded in Holistic Health and Family Systems—both of which enhance my understanding of individuals, their physical and mental health, and their interconnectedness with others and their environment.

My Background

After earning my Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Master of Science in Health Science, I worked in healthcare for 14 years in various capacities before returning to school for my Master in Couple and Family Therapy. While in the healthcare field, I worked with individuals from various cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds on a variety of physical and mental health issues. Some of which included prenatal and postpartum health and well being, parental-infant bonding and attachment, stress management, adjusting to parenthood, work-life balance, weight management, and chronic disease management.
