About

I delight in working with couples to repair troubled relationships & find a deeper, more secure connection with one another by helping partners bring their needs into awareness, share those unmasked parts, and transform old patterns of communication & interaction. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental space, whatever your orientation, identity, ethnicity, or sexual preference. I meet my clients where they are & am open, compassionate, and curious, whether we are discussing interpersonal conflicts, relationship issues, or other stressors. I am honored by the individuals & couples who have let me join them in those places.
I am a Licensed Psychologist and AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and I specialize in couples & sex therapy, affairs, trauma recovery, as well as depression, anxiety, bipolar, & other mental health issues. I am working towards certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy & am trained in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, CBT, & Cognitive Processing Therapy.
It can be scary to think about reaching out to a stranger to discuss the most vulnerable parts of ourselves. Therapy allows you to talk about the difficulties you're experiencing & be provided with unbiased support & space to reflect. Together, we'll set goals that address the struggles in your life/relationship & work towards a more positive direction.
