"Whether I'm working with couples, individuals, youth, children, or parents, I focus on guiding clients in finding balance, understanding, and solutions in order to move toward their goals. With couples, I utilize Gottman Method, recognized by many as the most effective therapy model for couples. I help couples manage conflict, deepen their friendship and intimacy, and create shared meaning in their lives. Couples therapy, believe it or not, can be an enjoyable and deeply healing process. I also work with a therapy dog named Phoenix, who can be a real comfort when things get hard."

"Emotional distress can express itself in a variety of ways for children and teens. Perhaps you have noticed your child shutting down, not talking to family or friends? Maybe your child is having temperamental outbursts or acting out in ways that feel out of control? Or a mixture of these extremes? While it is heartbreaking to see your child or teen struggle, it can equally feel isolating and exposing as a parent. With over 14 years of clinical experience working with children, teens, and parents, I am skilled at normalizing behaviors, gleaning meaning from symptoms, and helping parents optimize their parenting approach."
