I am Clinical Social Worker/Therapist, experienced in supporting couples with issues like communication styles, betrayal, serious or chronic illness, consensual non-monogamy and non-heteronormative relationships. I have completed Levels 1&2 of Gottman Method, and Emotionally Focused Therapy, and draw from these modalities in my work with couples. For individuals living with anxiety, depression, or difficult life transitions such as Menopause, divorce, or feeling "stuck", I offer evidence-based treatments paired to your learning style and needs, recognizing that therapy is a collaborative process.
I am also here for those who may be thinking, "I don't need therapy". These sessions can be the most enlightening, where powerful questions can encourage deeper understanding of self. Maybe it's about processing thoughts around new relationships or accountability when making change, clients tend to gain valuable insight from an unbiased sounding board.
I understand change is difficult. I offer online/virtual therapy sessions from the comfort of your own home. Feel free to contact me to discuss your needs.
