Hi! I'm glad you're here!
I'm a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with significant training in child development, family systems, trauma-informed treatment modalities, and I'm passionate about helping families learn to LOVE being together!
I have more than 15 years of experience working with children, youth & families in early education, child welfare, mental health, and school-based settings. As a mom to 3 young kids of my own, I know that whether it's the piling up of daily life stressors, the unique challenges our children confront us with, our own past trauma: maintaining peace and connection in our home doesn't always come naturally!
All behaviors communicate something, and I'm here to help uncover what may be being said - but misunderstood and interrupting your family's ability to connect more positively, love more deeply, and genuinely enjoy your time together!
My theoretical approach is generally through an attachment-based lens, but I take an integrative approach to understanding you, your needs, and ensuring you achieve the goals you have for your family.
You can expect a person-centered, judgment free space that is guided by the commitment of turning your dream family into your reality.
Perfect for those who don’t want to use their insurance!
$170/Initial Intake (typically 90 minutes)
$135/Session (typically 50-60 minutes)
I do not bill your insurance company* for private pay services rendered.This approach puts YOU in the driver seat for these services and ensures the full scope of your family needs can be met without disruption and for the duration of time you decide is appropriate.You may CHOOSE to submit for out-of-network reimbursement.
