Marriage & Family Therapy Intern
“Most clients/couples have the capacity and wherewithal to achieve a healthy and enjoyable life/marriage. Life’s path can be challenging and occasionally traumatic. However, gaining a fresh perspective and new thinking methods often offers hope. As a therapist, I aim to come alongside the client’s unique circumstances to help them find solutions to solvable problems, learn to cope better with unsolvable issues and discover a joy-filled and meaningful life.”

In life, the Lone Ranger mentality doesn’t work; we all need help from time to time. I look forward to meeting new clients and helping them meet their goals.
