As a psychotherapist, my greatest reward comes from empowering individuals, couples, and adolescents to navigate life’s challenges and build resilience. For over two decades, I’ve dedicated myself to service, first as a Marine officer, then as an educator, and finally, as a therapist. Each experience has equipped me to better understand and support those seeking to overcome personal struggles.

My 24 years in the Marines instilled in me the values of discipline, leadership, and unwavering commitment. These qualities served me well during deployments and combat tours, forging resilience and a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by those who serve.

Leaving the military, I transitioned to education, fostering a love of learning in high school and middle school students. This experience provided invaluable insight into the pressures young people face in today’s world.

Today,  I draw on this multifaceted background to create a comprehensive and compassionate approach to therapy. Whether you’re an individual struggling with anxiety or depression, a couple seeking to strengthen your relationship, or an adolescent navigating the complexities of teenage life, I offer a safe and supportive space for exploration and growth.

My therapeutic approach is collaborative, allowing us to work together to develop personalized goals and strategies. I utilize evidence-based methods like CBT and mindfulness to help you build coping skills and emotional resilience. My style is warm, compassionate, and direct, prioritizing the creation of a trusting environment where you feel empowered to express yourself fully.

If you’re seeking a therapist who understands your unique challenges and is dedicated to supporting your well-being, I invite you to reach out for a free consultation. Together, we can explore the path forward and work towards a life filled with greater peace and fulfillment.
