About

I’ve been described (mostly affectionately) as a kick-ass therapist. I support my clients to deal with triggers more gracefully, take responsibility for the stories of their lives, and move towards what brings them true pleasure. I am also particularly good with navigating and transforming relationship issues and conflicts. My goal is to support those I work with to move towards greater presence, purpose, and play. Life can be intensely beautiful but sometimes we have to sort out our internal and external dynamics before we can be fully in the flow. I see people on a short-term or long-term basis, depending on their needs.
I love working with couples and believe that being in a relationship is one of the best ways to grow and wake up. The key is to develop healthy ways to manage triggers (old thoughts, feelings, and action patterns) that often come up in intimacy. Triggers, if skillfully managed, can lead to deeper intimacy.
Early on with each client, I offer a “mapping session”. This is a way to get the issues on the table, without judgement. These sessions are often deeply comforting and clarifying. Sometimes a mapping session is enough to get perspective and know how to move forward. My goal is to help my clients feel better quickly and also create deep and lasting change.
