Clients seek me out to navigate life changes; entering adulthood, transitioning to parenthood, difficulties in their marriage, infidelity, feeling lost, struggling with anxiety, intrusive thoughts, or depression. Wherever life has led you, I am here to help you find your footing, gain personal insight, and move forward on your journey.
I am a certified clinical trauma professional; trained in CBT, Mindfulness, and evidenced based treatment strategies. I specialize in marriage therapy and my training includes Level 1, 2, and 3 of Gottman Marital Strategies, as well as Emotion Focused Couples Therapy and Imago relationship therapy. I maintain specialized training in the areas of trauma, and attachment. I update my clinical skills regularly to ensure I am providing you with evidence based care.
In 2006 I earned a Masters' degree in Clinical Psychology with a specialty in Marriage and Family Therapy from Benedictine University.
I am currently taking a sabbatical and am not seeing clients during this life season. I am still accepting speaking engagements and helping lead the bi-annual 2 Become 1 marriage retreat at Mt. Angel Abbey.
