I wholeheartedly believe that the most longlasting relational change happens when both people show up to do the work. The transformation that I witness on a daily basis, comes from couples who are courageous enough to get vulnerable with each other and engage in this unique healing process. Experiencing two people on the verge of separation, heartbreak or even divorce learn to share their feelings in ways that their partner hears for the first time, is why I do what I do. I help each of you identify what isn't working, why it isn't working and how to transform your relationship. While I guide you to heal wounds from your past, you begin to feel connection, deep intimacy, and a sense of safety that couples only dream of.

My professional experience with toxic relationship dynamics coupled with surviving my own unhealthy family interactions, informs my work in helping you. You will learn how to implement boundaries in relationships, manage strong personalities, and confidently address the unspoken/less obvious patterns with loving firmness.

In our sessions, you can experience acceptance by your loved one through specific skills taught (active listening, validation, attunement, safe touch, and silent support). You can discover how temperament (introvert/extrovert) can impact feelings of compatibility and how to navigate when it seems to “not work.” Together, you and your partner will develop a deep understanding of how one another's beliefs systems were developed over time and how they impact your relationship today. Most importantly, you will participate in corrective emotional experiences, which is the only way to change unhealthy, unhelpful and painful patterns in relationships.

Now that we’re no longer strangers, here’s the nitty gritty:

  • In 2007 I graduated from University of Central Missouri, with a Bachelor's Degree in elementary education and a minor in health. While teaching, I found myself very interested in what dynamics where going on in my students' home lives that could be contributing to their dysregulation in class. After teaching for 2 years in Arizona, I realized I wanted to learn more about psychology and family therapy.

  • In 2010, I was guided to start my Master’s Degree in mental health counseling at Walden University.

  • In 2013 I earned my Master’s Degree while working at a residential treatment center for teens.

  • 2014 I started working in the private practice setting and loved the freedom to help my clients creatively.

  • 2019 I joyfully accepted the invitation to join The Happy Couple Experts of OC to work exclusively with couples.

Like you, I am many things.  Relationship expert for couples and individuals. California licensed Marriage + Family Therapist. Highly sensitive person.  Ex-marketing account executive.  A Las Vegas-born California gal. Hiking junkie.  Yogi. Lover of tacos. World traveler. Outdoor enthusiast. Seeker of truth, connection + understanding of the sacredness of life.  

Above all, I am in love with with helping women connect deeply with their Divine Feminine Essence and men stepping into their Sacred Masculine Essence. My passion for guiding men + women back home to their true Selves has deepened the work I do within relationships.  Each person I have the honor of guiding, learns how to deeply connect on a Soul level, move their bodies to heal their wounds and create intensely loving connections. Together you learn what it takes to create the love + life your soul is yearning for.

Now that we’re no longer strangers, here’s the nitty gritty:

After working in the fast-paced world of marketing for six years, I knew I was ready for a change. I did some deep soul-searching + my inner compass led me to a Masters program in Marriage and Family Therapy in San Diego, CA.

  • In 2009 I began been working with individuals, couples + teens to provide skills, support + healing with grief and loss, academic struggles, behavioral issues, parenting concerns, and communication challenges.

  • In 2010, I started working directly with adults struggling with addiction and mental illness within the criminal justice system, by providing understanding, skills and support with sobriety, social skills, relationship issues, trauma and family reunification.

  • In 2013, I joined a psychotherapy group practice in Irvine, California so that I could bring skills and guidance to couples and individuals within the Orange County, California community.

  • In late 2014, I started the transition to my own private practice, The Happy Couple Expert in Laguna Hills, California where I continue work with couples and individuals from all over Southern California - Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, and San Diego.
