Therapist and Owner of Estes Therapy

It's been nearly 20 years since I first became interested in studying therapy. I began practicing the scientific approaches to psychotherapy in 1997 and I was hooked from then on.  

I earned my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2004 and I am currently licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist MFT (MFC#47653) with the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS). I focus my practice upon the empirically-based and proven research methods of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I’ve seen these techniques consistently get results and I truly believe they are the most effective at creating positive, long-term change.  


Please reach out to us if you have any questions about the retreat.
