We strive to find whole and fulfilled lives. Knowing ourselves and others can be clouded by any number of reasons. You may feel your relationships are slipping away as a parent or partner who feels disconnected or at the end of your rope with the people in your life. Relationships are messy and the mess can feel like a kid who just realized the paint on their hands is smeared all over themselves, the walls, and others nearby. It feels gunky, staining–being at a loss and stuck in the mess of things. And yet, there is beauty in that and a picture waiting to be created as a significant part of our process to become aware of who we are and others with us in the chaos.

Sometimes our relationships have to get a little more messy or intense for change, new rhythm, and order to come as you desire a safe space in seeking healing change. I am for you in the difficult and desired work within the process of exploring, discovering, and engaging the art of relationship as you become grounded for yourself and as you work towards deeper and fulfilling relationships.

As an associate licensed marriage and family therapist, I offer relational and individual therapy. I specialize in play therapy for children between the ages of 2-12 years old through child-centered and filial play therapy, as well as family sessions. I am trained as a PREPARE-ENRICH facilitator and offer couples and premarital counseling. I approach your experiences with cultural humility and have worked with persons who identify as international, first or second generation families, or of multi-cultural and multi-ethnic backgrounds.
