Work History

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with experience working with families, individuals, and couples. I provide a collaborative therapeutic approach integrating human-centered, Solution-Focused, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to support clients as they face, explore, and cope with painful emotions, behavioral challenges, and stressors. I recognize the need for help navigating life and emotional challenges. Knowing that it takes courage for people to seek therapy, I work with compassion to create a therapeutic relationship where you can feel safe, understood, and empowered. I will listen carefully to your concerns and will work with you to develop treatment goals tailored to your individual needs. My goal is to help everyday people, facing everyday problems overcome challenges and live their best life. I am a therapist at Octave, a behavioral health practice creating a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible.
