I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT 106131).  I provide counseling to individuals, couples, and families in a warm and supportive environment.  I strongly believe in the power of the human connection and have seen beautiful healing, change and growth in that space.  I am honored to join and walk with my clients on their path to inner peace. We all hold the strength within ourselves to overcome and persevere during life’s challenges and I aim to help clients identify and realize that potential within themselves.  I use multiple treatment modalities and techniques, with the therapeutic relationship being at the heart of all my work. I have knowledge and experience in varying mental health concerns across a range of populations to include: military personnel/veterans, high conflict couples, adolescents and co-parenting relationships. I am an Air Force veteran and my educational background includes a Bachelors degree from the U.S. Naval Academy, a Masters degree in Human Services from Liberty University and a Masters degree in Psychology-Marriage and Family Therapy from Brandman University.  When I am not in session, you will often find me out for a run in the Sacramento area or spending time with my husband and children.

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist Trainee. I work with those who are experiencing depression, grief, anxiety, struggles in relationships, and/or working through change. I believe that many of us struggle when we do not feel heard, seen, and understood. When this happens, we can often feel disconnected from others and ourselves. It is my hope to come alongside you in your story with support, empathy, and compassion to help you move towards self-growth and self-understanding. 
My educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from William Jessup University. I am currently seeking my Master’s in Professional Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. 

As a counselor, I bring my authentic self into the therapeutic space and will gladly share in a good laugh or bear witness to heartache and struggle. I believe in the power of genuine connections and feel deeply humbled to walk with clients through their uniquely personal journeys. Time and again, I’m inspired by their courage to trust the therapeutic process and embrace change. My approach to therapy is to create an open and non-judgmental environment for clients to explore their greatest challenges and deepest sorrows.

My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Oregon State University. I’m also in the process of obtaining a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northcentral University. As a Marriage and Family Therapist Trainee, I have received specialized training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families. On the weekends, you can find me hiking, traveling, and spending time with loved ones.

Life can be hard. It can feel overwhelming and scary at times. I understand the stressors of life, and my intention is to help you tap into your inner resources and build upon your strengths. Self-exploration is powerful and courageous. Through authentic connection and openness, growth and healing can occur. I help individuals cope with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, interpersonal relationships, and life transitions. My approach is collaborative, empathic, and supportive, and I incorporate various therapeutic modalities to meet the different needs of each individual. It is my mission to provide a safe and accepting environment in which you can delve into and work through difficult changes, choices, and life events. Together, we explore emotions and identify patterns of thinking and behaving that drive you. We examine their origin, find meaning, and work towards achieving healthier ways of relating and understanding. It is with great honor and privilege to walk alongside you on your journey.

At some point in life you know you need something profound and powerful. You need a person: someone to whom you can share secrets; that secret that lies deep inside of you - the one that you've hidden from the outside world of work and action, even from your own thoughts. It's the secret that scares you because you don't know how the telling of it, the examining of it, the speaking of it out loud will change you. What might you loose? But you then find it becomes too painful to hide it anymore. So you reach out and find someone safe, nonjudgmental, kind and compassionate to hear your story. Surprisingly you discover, when you bring it out of hiding, a new friendship begins: a friendship with you, and a friendship with others that brings peace and a union of all the separated pieces of yourself. 
As a therapist I strive to create a safe, nonjudgmental, accepting place where my clients can explore their secrets - their fears - and their pain. It is my goal to help my clients begin to trust themselves, trust me and possibly God. To hep them find their true voice and build satisfying connections from a place of congruence and confidence and not fear and protection. 
I am trained in Brainspotting, Certified in Prepare and Enrich couples counseling and enjoy working with Individuals, couples and adolescents

I am a marriage and family therapist trainee. I believe everyone can benefit from someone walking with them in life and, with intention,  listen to their story. The ability to draw out and uncover possible trouble spots or to give insight, I believe to be a special skill that, sometimes, can only be done in a therapeutic relationship. I am passionate about helping marriages, couples, individuals, husbands, wives, and parents be the best they can be or even helping those in trouble get to places where they never thought possible.  Having worked with people in various environments for over 15 years I am familiar with our brokenness in humanity and see hope for us all to become whole people. Whether you desire a listening ear or need help battling depression or anxiety, I am willing to help. I am not limited to one theory of therapy as each person is individual and may respond in different ways. It is important to me to hear each person and provide finding a path that will work for them. I look forward to working with you and/or your family.I received my undergraduate in Psychology from Sacramento State Unviersity and am currently finishing a Master’s Degree at Brandman University. I am available on Monday and Tuesday.
