I have over 34 years of experience as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I received my Masters’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Auburn University in 1987. I have worked in an inpatient Eating Disorders Unit, the Employee Assistance Program for Michelin Tire North America, and have been in private practice for 20 years.

I have done extensive additional training in couples therapy and am a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, Advanced Clinician. Imago Relationship Therapy (IRT) has been practiced internationally for over 30 years and has helped thousands of couples move from conflict and disconnection to a more connected loving relationship.   My profile on Imago Relationships North America can be accessed through the link below.

I am also trained in using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which has been shown through extensive research to be effective in treating such problems as depression and anxiety, phobias, chronic pain, self-esteem issues and more.  I enjoy working with individuals experiencing depression or anxiety to help them regain a sense of well-being and joy in life.
