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.

With over 15 years of experience working directly with families and children, I offer a compassionate and integrated approach through a variety of evidence-based modalities. My psychological evaluations result in a comprehensive psychological report, and I aim to "tell the story" of an individual rather than simply assign a "label." All evaluations yield individualized recommendations, and I provide a client-centered, in-depth feedback session aimed at empowerment. I also work with individuals and families with issues around neurodiversity, anxiety, depression, or those simply wanting to build skills towards empowerment.

Thanks for checking out my page. Chronic stress can play a huge role in someone's life. When stress becomes chronic, it can severely impact one's ability to function. Telling our story benefits us in many ways. It connects us from the past to our present and future. Instinctively we are automatically drawn to stories. When we can see ourselves reflected in them, they can teach us lessons in life.

***I am no longer taking new clients.*** My work is focused on providing relief and healing for any individuals who have experienced abuse, neglect, or psychological trauma like trafficking, sexual assault, death of a loved one, accidents, disasters, or racial/systemic oppression. Treatment can be intensive if that's helpful, and I am able to offer double sessions, and telehealth in between sessions. I have lots of success with clients whose past treatment hasn't worked, or whose trauma/abuse is particularly intense. My primary interest is in figuring out what you need, and walking with you until you reach it.

Congratulations on taking steps to getting support! Therapy is a way to not feel so alone with our pain, change our thoughts and behaviors so they are more adaptive and healthy, and allow us to live in a more expansive way. I see you as the expert on you, and my role as an expert in healing, together we collaborate to get you where you want to be in life. Brain science, attachment theory (childhood relationship with our caregivers), and the context of our culture (as it intersects with our identities) are the lenses I use to strengthen your awareness, feel feelings, and heal. Laughter and peace are a necessary part of healing too!

My focus is on restoring balance and building communication within families as they are integral in increasing the overall well-being of individuals, couples and families. I identify symptoms such as marital discord, addiction, behavioral issues among children and adolescents, mental and medical health issues as becoming an unhelpful part of the family system. My approach to reduce the impact of these symptoms and break harmful patterns is collaborative, encouraging members to be open and honest throughout the progression of therapy.
