About Me

My Journey To Specializing in Medical Family Therapy

We are all on a journey through life, each of us with a different destination.  My road has led me to be of service to others.

 

As a credentialed Medical Family Therapist my quest is to assist individuals and couples gain clarity about their feelings, thoughts and behaviors to create harmony in their relationships. I have held many roles in my career; however, I feel called to provide therapy to individuals and couples struggling with mental health concerns.
