"I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors."

"Are you working towards a fulfilling life but feel stuck or overwhelmed? Are you hurting inside and unsure of where to turn? Most of our struggles stem from our relationships with others and we often need tools for healing these wounds. Although talk is helpful, the research shows that tapping into the right brain where emotions are housed is vital in transforming long-standing issues or limiting beliefs. Utilizing Experiential approaches including EMDR, Brainspotting, inner parts work, and Somatic therapies we can heal the mind and body. "

"One thing I did not learn growing up was how to understand what was really going on for me. I spent years not knowing how to listen to my own feelings or what to do once I found them. And I am still learning. A little more all the time. I have spent the past decade studying how to become aware of the subtle signals in a situation and how to follow them in a way that shows who we really are and what we really want. The learning and unlearning this takes has become my devotion. Being with others and doing this together had become something I love. "

We believe that mental health is an effect of feeling more deeply connected to ourselves and to others through the safety of transparent, emotionally honest relationships. How we communicate with ourselves and those we care about determines whether we possess integrity and feel empowered to express ourselves as human beings.

"I work with both artists and social change agents seeking to use a mix of embodied practices (such as role-play, movement, and somatic awareness) and talk methods to discover their emergent truth and develop ways to integrate this new awareness into their everyday life. My approach invites self-expression, personal exploration, and self-discovery through both embodied as well as talk methods. Some sessions look like regular talk therapy; others are more embodied and nonverbal; and others are more like a role play. Each session follows what is most alive for you in the moment and honors your unique style."
