I believe relationships are really important and that they have a direct impact on how happy we feel. It is often difficult to focus at work, school or even to enjoy the things we normally do, if there is a problem in any of our close relationships. You deserve to feel happy, have great relationships and live the life you desire! That is why I love this work. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have had the privilege of working with individuals and couples for over 14 years. I graduated from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana and went on to St Mary’s University in San Antonio Texas for my Master’s Degree. Through relationship therapy, I have seen direct changes in the way my clients feel about themselves, resolve problems, work to improve their relationship, achieve their goals and live a life they love.
More about My approach:
It is not so much the situations or experiences that really impact us, but the way we interpret our experiences. Through therapy, you can learn to to view feelings and situations in a different way and then new possibilities are revealed! This is a relatively quick way to healing and feeling restored and empowered.
Good therapy can be relaxed and full of laughter even when we are talking about difficult things!
On a personal note, I am an endurance athlete and love endurance events! I have competed in over 26 marathons and numerous triathlons from sprint distance up to Ironman, both 70.3 and 140.6. My passion for living an active and healthy lifestyle contributes to my holistic approach to treating problems and emphasis on the importance of overall emotional, relational, physical and spiritual wellness.
