Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I specialize in treating adolescents and adults with a variety of anxiety and depressive disorders. I will work with you to address past trauma, decrease work-related stress and teach you skills to help get "unstuck" with challenges you may be facing. I also do a great deal of work with couples and families to address common relationship concerns, such as: communication, conflict resolution, trust, intimacy issues and financial concerns. Relationship therapy focuses on providing couples with skills to help increase trust, gain intimacy and strengthen their overall relationship. I am a Gottman Educator for "Bringing Baby Home" a program that specifically focuses on teaching couples how to keep their relationship strong when a new baby enters their relationship. These skills can be helpful for couples going through other transitions in their lives as well, such as re-locating, a change in career or loss of a family member. I co-founded Positive Change Counseling Center in 2006 and with 15 years of experience, continue to provide effective treatment to my clients. I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of Iowa in 2000 and a Masters of Arts from the University of San Diego in Marital and Family Therapy in 2002.
