Now offering telehealth services for Oregon! I've been a therapist and clinical supervisor for over 15 years; I know how to help, and I have the experience. I work with many engineers, tech, and business professionals to help them express and process hard emotions in a supportive, non-intimidating way. I'm married to an engineer, and I know the pressures. I specialize in working with couples, and successful, high achieving women and men struggling with depression, anxiety, and relationship concerns. If you're a therapist yourself and struggling with compassion fatigue, burn out and stress, I speak your language, and I've been there.
I work with couples, other therapists, and adults in the business/tech/engineering and healthcare fields. In my work with couples, I help you get back that lost connection and rebuild the bond of your special relationship. I utilize evidence based approaches to help couples and individuals achieve noticeable changes.
Therapy doesn't have to be strange, awkward, or intimidating. My opinions are offered in a respectful way. I know what works and what doesn't; training future psychologists has made me better at what I do. I offer evidenced based interventions based on your unique situation. I am trained to work with individuals and couples.

I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for my work with couples. It is the gold standard in couples therapy, with backing of hundreds of research studies to support its effectiveness.
