About

As a therapist, I am guided by the idea that the more effectively dependent we are on each other, the more independent and adventurous we become. I also believe that the quality of our relationships can deeply impact our mental wellness in general. Humans are bonding, relational beings who need to feel secure and loved in their close relationships. We need to know that we matter to our loved ones. We need to feel heard, seen and accepted for who we are. It is when we don't feel heard and seen and stop feeling security and trust in our relationships that issues arise.
In my specialty of relational therapy, my work with couples has been on emotional disconnection, communication concerns, infidelity, betrayal, polyamory and open relationship concerns. My work with individuals has been on developing a stronger sense of self and on feeling more heard, seen, and connected in the context of their close relationships.
My work is to help you identify those emotions and needs and be able to express them with care and vulnerability. Your relationships can be your safe harbor. My goal is to attune to your needs in a safe and caring space, help you create secure and nurturing relationships and guide you on your journey of growth and wellness.
