I help couples who struggle with various forms of intimacy (communication, emotional, sexual, conflict, self, spiritual, and sexual). During our session we will dive deeply into the issues and work toward healing any trauma that prevents the couple from connecting. After working with me, most couples feel more passionately connected and they have gain tools to better meet each other needs.

In therapy, I utilized a variety of methods depending on the couple or client. All my couples go through the Gottman Connect assessments. Depending on the results, I may use EMDR to address the trauma; solution focus (SFBT) and cognitive behavioral (CBT) to address anxiety or depression; my own intimacy therapy & MFT to help couples connect, & positive sex therapy for any sexual issues.
