MAMFT, CACFT Student Member

Bio

I am a life-long learner who has always journeyed alongside people who are struggling and in pain. After many years at home raising my family, launching this business with my husband and co-founder, Caleb, and co-hosting The Marriage Podcast for Smart People, I returned to school to pursue my Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy. 

Currently, in my internship at OnlyYouForever, I receive weekly supervision to help me learn to put into practice the many hours I have spent studying the latest psychological research and modalities as I learn to be the best therapist I can be for my clients. As an Intern, my rates are heavily discounted so please reach out if you would like to work with me! Please note: I will be working as a fully-qualified therapist from May 1, 2024.

My Approach

I approach counselling from a compassionate and empathic stance. I believe that every person holds value and has the resources and strengths within them that they need in order to become the person they want to be. I enjoy working together with my clients to identify and tap into those strengths.

I have a desire to help a broad range of people but do have a special interest in youth, young adults and their families. That time of life is so critical but can be so challenging! It is my privilege to be an empathic, non-judgmental presence to come alongside and walk through those moments together.
