Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #80877

I am excited to work alongside you in your goals toward personal growth. I feel privileged to be a part of the healing journey for clients, and recognize how seeking help from a trusted person is the first step in this path. I understand that we all have our valleys in life. I strive to help you reach your hilltop hour.

“The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse.” Helen Keller
