Marriage and Family Therapist
I received my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Edgewood College in 2014. I have experience working with children, adolescents and adults battling a wide range of mental health challenges, including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, and experience of trauma. Much of my career has been spent working in crisis intervention, where I have been able to provide assessment and support to individuals with severe and persistent mental illness as well as with those who are struggling with thoughts of self-harm.
While my practice is primarily focused on the individual, partners, children, or other family members are often invited to join a session to address systemic issues that play a vital role in individual treatment.
I utilize a solution-focused, collaborative approach to therapy to build on a person’s strengths and foster growth, while allowing the individual to have a crucial role in the treatment process. I also recognize the important connection between the body and mind and frequently teach mindfulness-based techniques when appropriate. I feel very fortunate that I am able to meet so many different people through this work and that I can help my clients to make positive, life-long changes.
Outside of my clinical practice I enjoy spending time with my husband, our 2 children, and our close group of friends.
