About

Are you having a hard time communicating with your loved ones? Or yourself? As a therapist specializing in relationships, I offer compassionate support to couples, families, and individuals wanting more connection. I can help you get to the heart of what matters quickly and leave you with concrete communication skills to keep your relationships strong long after therapy ends.
My style is warm, authentic, and draws on Nonviolent Communication, play / humor, Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, somatic awareness, and brain science. Having been an ecologist and Yosemite trail worker, I know the healing power of the earth and am delighted to offer eco-therapy.
I believe that you matter, you belong, and that you make sense. We all do. I would love to help you bring that truth into your life and your relationships so they can blossom. If you are ready to heal yourself and your relationships, I hope to hear from you soon!
