Graduate Intern

Under supervision of Marsha Bradford

While I specialize primarily in marital, couple and family therapy, I am available to anyone who may need another perspective as to why they are struggling. The type of therapy I offer is one from years of experience and education, yet I am mindful that every family, couple, and individual who comes to me has their own unique story and set of issues distinctive to the course of their life. I am a an educated, empathetic, non-judgmental resource for you to navigate the everyday and lifelong challenges you face. If you are suffering in silence or feeling that no one is listening while you scream for help, I will act as a safe, sounding board for the internal and external influences that affect your happiness. My psychological approach is tailored to each person and family’s specific needs utilizing a wide range of methodologies that I can pull from for your circumstance.


Whether you are still in school or close to retirement, we can work together to alleviate your conflict, once you choose to address it out loud. This life gives us cyclical family patterns that are difficult to interrupt on one’s own to current daily challenges like getting out of bed, getting enough sunlight and exercise, and being bombarded by a society and our personal screens that scream unfounded messages at us that we are not enough and that the world is a chaotic mess.


Perspective is everything, but gaining it is difficult without speaking up and welcoming in help. I specialize in pattern interruption, empathy, diagnosing relational life and family problems. I do this by forming an alliance and listening to you, with many different schools of thought practiced, to become your advocate while you focus on your mental health and how and what you want to change.
