About

As a firm believer in a mind-body-spirit approach to psychological health, I incorporate a long history of multi-disciplinary spiritual practice and investigation with my graduate training in relationship / family therapy into a holistic perspective that utilizes transitions and crises as opportunities to deepen insight and life skills that better navigate and manage them. In terms of couples work, I help with communications, developing conflict resolution strategies, healing from infidelities, addiction/codependency, and other sexual issues by examining your familial/relational histories and teaching a variety of guideposts to help you be your best selves, together and individually.
I combine an eclectic, compassionate and humanistic / psychodynamic approach that incorporates mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral strategies, spirituality and life skills into personal strategies co-designed organically with you with the end purpose being your empowerment to lead the healthiest, most productive and balanced life possible.
I provide a open, collaborative, and understanding therapeutic environment that is sensitive to all of the varieties along the cultural, gender and spiritual/belief spectrums. Additionally, I am versed in and respectful to the fluid gamut of relationship styles - from strict monogamy to the many permutations of ethical polyamory.
