Everyone experiences challenges in life…
…and at times you need someone to listen and encourage you on your journey. My goal is for every client to feel comfortable, safe, and most importantly, heard, and understood. It takes courage, humility, and love to pick up the phone and decide to begin therapy. I believe making the choice to participate in therapy can be the first step to positive and lasting changes. It is through this process people can undergo transforming and fulfilling experiences. When facing challenging issues, I believe in working collaboratively with clients to identify healthy goals and a treatment plan, where everyone is heard, and their experience is valued in the process. I focus on a variety of concerns impacting the heart and lives of those I see, including relational issues, marital counseling, parenting, stress management, anxiety, depression, and more.
Nothing to lose but a chance for change
I offer a free 15-minute, brief phone consult to insure a good fit and to answer any initial questions you may have. It is important you find the right therapist for you, your situation, and the results you are seeking. It has been clinically supported that clients who connect well with their therapist see the most beneficial and truly lasting results. If you are going to invest the time and resources in taking back and caring for your life, it’s important to make the right choice. Call, Text, or Email, and let’s see if I am the best fit for you during this current season of life.
I am a Marriage and Family Therapist
Marriage and family therapy training is anchored by the concept of creating systemic change. This is the most effective approach for working with couples, families, and even individuals. My clinical focus is to look for the roots of a client’s distress and co-create with them research proven solutions to their issues. By focusing on the roots of an issue, and not just symptoms, long-term results and relief can be experienced by those seeking assistance.
I have received training and practical application with many evidence-based therapy models, including Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, and Bowenian-Transgenerational Therapy. My clinical style is supportive, warm, approachable, humorous, directive, appropriately challenging, and empowering. I have been happily married to one woman, through all the ups and downs, since 2004 with two children, a cat, a dog, and a few fish.
I earned my BS in Sociology with Minors in Psychology and Religious Studies, along with a focus on Family and Human Development Studies through Arizona State University, graduating with honors. I then obtained my Master of Advanced Studies in Marriage and Family Therapy at Arizona State University, again graduating with high marks and being recognized as a leader within my class. Arizona State University’s Master of Advanced Studies in Marriage and Family Therapy (MAS-MFT) program is rising in notoriety due to excellent instruction by past presidents of the Arizona Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and current members of the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Managers.
