I specialize in relationship counseling for couples and families. Most of our emotional wounds come from relationship issues and attachment trauma. In my own life, I struggled to find my voice as a wife and a mother of two children. I had a lot of religious trauma in my upbringing—I grew up in a tightly-controlled environment where I was taught to suppress my own needs and wants. That deeply affected my sense of self. As a result, I know what it’s like to lose yourself in a relationship and forget where your boundaries are, as if you have no voice of your own.

I also know what it’s like to find your voice again and enjoy relationships that are nurturing and empowering. I love helping my clients discover themselves, say all the things they feared to say out loud, and find the strength within them to make changes in their lives.

I believe that people thrive when they are truly and deeply seen and heard for who they are. I want to create a safe space for you to tell the truth. I want you to feel safe enough to be vulnerable with the deepest parts of yourself. And most of all, I want to empower you to pursue what gives your life meaning and purpose.

 

As a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, my areas of focus include:
Support for Couples | Support for parents | Communication Issues | Relationship issues | Boundaries | Attachment Issues | Support for women | Support to find your voice

If you’re ready to get started, I offer a free 20-min consultation to see if we are a good fit. I’d love to help you or a member of your family get the help they need to live a happier life.

I love my Friday night routine – homemade pizza and a movie with the whole family. Trying to get 2 middle schoolers to agree on a movie doesn’t always happen but we still try!
