Training & Experience

I'm so happy you are here! Selecting a provider who is a good fit is an important component of effective therapy. If you are interested in working together, I'd like for you to get to know my background and experience.

 

I obtained a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) from Northwestern University. While in my master's program, I gained clinical experience with diverse clientele. I worked with individuals, couples, and families at Northwestern's Bette D. Harris Family and Child clinic. And in downtown Chicago, I provided parent training to families of children ages 2 to 6 through the "Parents in Charge" program.

 

I pursued a PhD in MFT from Florida State University. I spent two years seeing clients at FSU's Center for Couple and Family Therapy and also delivered an evidence-based parenting program called the "Incredible Years." In addition, I worked at an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) focused on treating families of adolescents with substance use issues. 

 

After graduating, I moved to San Francisco where I trained therapists as an Assistant Professor in a Couple and Family Therapy program. I ultimately decided to return to Tallahassee to start my own family and be closer to home. Now, I own a private practice, which grants me the flexibility to work with a wide range of clientele. I also serve as a faculty member at FSU in the Department of Family and Child Sciences. I teach courses in Family Relationships, Foundations of Counseling, Parenting, and Lifespan Development.
