Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Hello, I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and have an online therapy practice. I completed my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Alliant International University in 2009. I specialize in providing therapy to teens, individuals, couples and families who are struggling with life stressors, relationship concerns, parenting difficulties, depression, and anxiety. The way I approach therapy is to look at each person as part of a larger family system. The way we each grow up influences our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors throughout our life. Some of these influences are positive and others can cause us difficulties and get in the way of the person we want to be and the relationships we want to have. I utilize a combination of CBT (Cognitive-Behavior-Therapy), Psychoeducation, and Mindfulness practices within my therapy in order to help my clients obtain knowledge and develop skills to assist them in difficult times. I believe we all have the ability to grow and overcome our personal difficulties and live the life we want to have. Therapy is a great tool to help one learn more about themselves and guide them to a better and happier self. I’m excited to be on this journey with you!
