I come from the world of Narrative Post Modern Psychotherapy and have a practical, down to earth style with direct, candid conversation to keep the therapeutic relationship responsive to your needs. I work together with clients when designing short and long treatment plans, according to the diverse needs of individuals, couples and families. Since I am also a certified yoga therapist I am able to combine elements of advanced, personalized breath practices with tools from Cognitive Behavioral therapy. This evidence based combination is often highly effective when taught by a certified yoga therapist who also knows a client well.

Every couple is different, every couple is complicated, and every couple has trouble talking about one or more key issues. In your first session I will quickly assess what isn't working in your relationship and build a plan to eliminate the problem. I will help facilitate effective communication, make sure the sessions are emotionally safe, and teach practical methods for getting your thoughts and feelings across. My job is not to figure out who is right and who is wrong, my job is to help. ​I tend to work with couples each week for 8-12 weeks.

Are you having a tough time with someone you love or are close with? Are you a parent struggling with your child? Do you ever feel uncontrollably anxious or depressed? Do you want to quell your OCD rituals or tame your anger? You're not alone, nor do you have to solve your problem on your own. In fact, neuroscience has shown you really can't. Our brains are hardwired to connect -- within themselves and between individuals. By developing new self-regulation and self-improvement strategies, we literally rewire our brains, intentionally creating new neural pathways.
