Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#130602)
After 25 years of working in corporate America, I changed careers to fulfill my passion to help couples improve their relationship. In my own journey of therapy and coming to understand myself, I realized more and more how growing up around my parent's struggling marriage impacted me as an adult. My passion is couched in wanting to improve life not only for the couple but any children in the family. I am a systems thinker and approach relationships as not only a system between the two of you but awareness of the systems all around you that impact your relationship - the family you grew up in, your friends, your career along with your partner's family, etc.
I am a Certified Internal Family Systems Therapist (IFS) and a Certified Relationship Coach. I am trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Intimacy from the Inside Out (IFS for Couples) and the Couples Institute’s Developmental Model. I also have an MBA. My pronouns are She | Her.
