Therapy for Individuals, Couples and Families
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 2001, my commitment is to come along side you and offer you compassionate guidance as you navigate the particular challenges on your life journey. These challenges may include:
- relationship strain
- parent-child issuess
- struggles with food and weight (eating disorders)
- learning to effectively adapt to life changes and transitions (illness, loss and grief, divorce, empty nest)
- the discovery of positive means to effectively manage depression, anxiety, and bi-polar disorder
- the identification and recovery from issues related to co-dependency, people pleasing, and over-functioning.
I am also ready to help you look at your issues through the lens of Christian faith, should you desire that to be an integral part of your healing process.
I welcome the opportunity to work with adults and teens, families and couples. I have a particular passion for helping to restore struggling marriages and guiding partners to a deeper level of relational health and satisfaction.
Both The Gottman Method and Susan Johnson’s EFT influence my couples work.
On a more personal note, my husband and I attend Bayside Folsom, where I facilitate a weekly Ladies’ Book Club that explores selected books by Christian authors on topics related to emotional and spiritual growth.
Once we have scheduled an appointment you may download and complete the appropriate intake forms and bring them with you to our first appointment. Or, if you prefer, you can arrive 10-15 minutes early and fill out the paperwork, which I will leave for you on a clipboard in our waiting room.
Please feel free to contact me via voice mail or text: 916-491-0418. I will be happy to chat further with you regarding your needs and concerns.
