I provide therapy for individuals and couples who are looking for change through a warm, engaged, and challenging process. You are the best expert about your life and your experiences; sometimes you just need external perspective to help you truly know what you know and figure out what you want to do with that knowledge. Financial issues, grief, loss, transitions, and relationships - these are the issues people bring to therapy. I work with the information that you bring into the room to help co-create solutions that truly work for you.

Relationships are hard. But, why? Because your brain wants you and your partner to protect yourselves in ways that get in the way of feeling connected, loved, and passionate. Self-protection is always running in the background and you need to know how to manage it and make choices that are better for your relationship. That's normal. Thankfully, things can change. I'm an experienced, safe therapist who knows how to guide you toward new patterns of relating or recover from disappointment, affairs, fear, and distance. Heterosexual and LGBTQ couples are equally welcome in my practice.
