Hi! I'm Darcie

I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

My mission as a therapist is to provide support and guidance as you pursue understanding and healing in your life.

Aside from being a therapist, I am a wife, boy mom, and writer. I love spending time outside, hiking, traveling and immersing myself in different cultures.

Why I became a therapist

My journey to becoming a therapist was not linear. While my undergraduate degree was in Psychology, I chose another path after graduation and became an attorney. I experienced a tremendous amount of personal growth during law school and as an attorney, but felt unfulfilled in my work and realized that I wasn’t living a life fully for myself.

So I took a leap of faith and applied to graduate school for Marital and Family Therapy. As this path unfolded, I felt assured that this new direction was exactly what I needed. Not only has it led to a meaningful and fulfilling career, it has created the space for me to do my own inner work.

I believe that the most important work we can ever do is to look inside ourselves with vulnerability and embrace all of our parts, including the messy and imperfect ones. It is through this work that we are able to connect with what matters most to us and form and maintain thriving relationships with others.
