My personal and organizational mission is to empower people of all ages to bravely live, love, and overcome. My goal is to equip clients with the courage, strength, and resiliency needed to fully engage in the lives they lead. This is accomplished through therapy, coaching, and small group work using resources and interventions that are both insight-oriented and grounded in research. My work is largely influenced by Brene Brown’s research on shame and vulnerability and John Gottman’s research on marriage and couples relationships.A particular passion of mine is infertility and assisted conceptions. I have personally experienced a 5 year journey of infertility including endometriosis, diminished ovarian reserve, multiple failed IVFs, and am currently expecting our first child via egg donation.I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in Orlando, FL. I earned my Masters of Science from Loma Linda University in Southern California. In addition, I have over 15 years of experience in healthcare training and organizational culture.
