As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with almost 30 years of experience, I still find joy in witnessing individuals and couples improve their relationships, heal from trauma, and learn self-compassion.

In 2017, I founded the Couples and Family Wellness Center in order to match individuals, couples, families, teens and tweens with therapists skilled in working with your particular concerns and issues. My goal is to pair you with the therapist best suited to work with you and your loved ones, unlike big agencies who assign you to whomever has an opening.

Want to work with me? Here are some of my specialties:

Discernment Counseling

When you can’t decide whether to leave your current relationship or to pursue marriage or couple’s counseling, discernment counseling may be right for you. Read about discernment counseling here.


As  an Approved Supervisor with the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT), my passion is to foster the professional and personal growth of the next generation of counselors. I provide supervision toward LMFT licensure and for those wishing to earn the Approved Supervisor designation.

Are you trained in EMDR at the basic level and wish to become certified or expand your knowledge? I am an EMDRIA-approved consultant with training in many protocols, including Internal Family Systems-informed EMDR, chronic pain, addictions and peak performance.

Gray Divorce

You never imagined you would be a statistic after all these years of marriage. Yet, you now find yourself contemplating or in the midst of what is known as gray divorce, a term used to describe splitting up in later-life.

The numbers are even higher for second and subsequent marriages. Despite the high rate of divorce for boomers and seniors, little has been written about the specific challenges older adults face when their marriages end.

Whether you are divorce curious, have made a choice, or the decision was thrust on you, I have solutions to the emotional, legal, financial, and parenting challenges you may face!
