I have been trained in the most researched forms of couples therapy that have proven outcomes; I completed all three levels of Gottman Method Couples therapy, as well as level 1 of TEAM-CBT, Certified Prepare and Enrich Facilitator and Emotionally Focused Therapy, and the CBCT (Cognitively-Based Compassion Training) approach.
Most couples who consider therapy feel stuck in a destructive cycle that becomes exhausting, isolating, and lonely. We all feel lost at times and do not know how to stop hurting. We all share a common experience at some point in our lives: when our relationships become brittle. Thankfully, we now live in a time where there is an answer based on solid research-based approaches. You don’t have to keep guessing how to make it better.

You often feel like you’re on a hamster wheel; you’re stuck in the same cycles and don’t quite know where to begin in changing them. Perhaps you struggle with people-pleasing tendencies and want to learn to set healthy boundaries or find yourself feeling dissatisfied in your romantic relationships and want to work on that. You want to better understand your triggers and learn healthy ways to manage them. Life doesn’t come with a manual and can be hard to navigate without the right support. I am here to help you better understand yourself and implement the changes needed to live a happy, more fulfilling life.

Each of our distinct life experiences has shaped how we view ourselves and the world around us. My approach to therapy emphasizes the importance of examining your lived experiences and worldview because therapy is not one-size-fits-all. My specialty populations include activists and change makers, college students, sex workers, and military families, with a particular interest in working with marginalized genders and people of color. I have also received training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy (levels 1 & 2) and thoroughly enjoy working with couples to strengthen the foundation of their union and enhance connections.

I use the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy to teach couples how to create a healthy partnership.
Did you have a difficult childhood and are now afraid of repeating the same dysfunctional patterns in your own relationship? Are you afraid of intimacy and scared that your partner will reject and/or abandon you? Do you fear they won't "get" you? Maybe you have a hard time understanding yourself and knowing why you treat your partner the way you do. If you did not have the best childhood growing up, then chances are, you do not have a good model of what a healthy, life-long relationship or marriage looks like. Your parents did their best, but they struggled with their own issues and did not know have to have a healthy partnership.

Gottman Method Therapists

How does the Gottman method work?

One of the core doctrines of the Gottman method is that negative emotions hurt relationships about five times more than positive emotions help them. Thus, couples require five times more positive interactions than negative interactions with each other. The therapist will guide clients on how to improve communication and understanding of each other to manage conflict and have their emotional needs met. The therapist will also advise couples on how to repair relations with each other when conflict arises, and therefore avoid lasting damage.

Is the Gottman method evidence-based?

Yes, this method is an evidence-based approach to couples therapy. The method is based on more than 40 years of research by Drs. John and Julie Gottman, the psychologists who developed the method. The Gottmans analyzed decades of data to draw conclusions about what types of interactions are likely to lead to specific results, and which interventions are most likely to lead to success. Studies have found that this approach leads to improvements in relationship satisfaction, intimacy, communication skills, and a lower rate of divorce.

How long does the Gottman method take?

The duration of treatment depends on the specific challenges clients face. Sessions are typically 60 to 90 minutes long, and an average course of treatment is around 10 sessions. In some cases, such as for couples dealing with a critical problem, the therapist will suggest an intensive course of treatment, with daily sessions over the first two to four days. Treatment is complete when the couple is satisfied and has met the goals they’ve set, and when the therapist believes they have the skills to continue on their own.

Is the Gottman method effective?

Through the Gottman method, couples can achieve changes that are real and sustainable. This treatment has been used for more than 40 years; the method is supported by empirical research, including randomized controlled trials that have demonstrated effectiveness in improving relationship outcomes for couples. Like any talk therapy, success or failure depends in large part on how committed the clients are to making positive changes and working toward results.
