Philosophy of Care

I specialize in marriage and family counseling and enjoy working with couples, families, and teens. I support couples and families who are struggling to communicate effectively and are having difficulties resolving conflict and/or are trying to better manage and resolve behavioral issues. I understand that unresolved conflict and poor communication skills, lack of self-confidence and self-awareness, as well as low stress tolerance can lead to arguments, tension, anxiety, depression, and exhaustion. We all need healthy and loving relationships in our lives to flourish mentally, physically and spiritually. In addition to working with couples, I really enjoy working with teenagers. Teens in today's culture are bombarded with attacks from social media, marketing and propaganda. Thus, making the transition from adolescence to adulthood difficult which often impacts the entire family. My hope is to create a very intentional space for growth, learning, and healing.
