I incorporate multiple modalities - including cognitive behavioral therapy, strategic therapy, and the Gottman Method - to build tools and strategies for you to work through your situation and to deepen your relationships.
I employ compassion, creativity, humility, and humor in working with individuals, couples, families, law enforcement and military personnel, including those who are in transition into new beginnings and stages-of-life. I view the person as separate from their situation and condition, and are capable of change - whether they have a disability, medical/chronic condition, substance use, anger, depression, anxiety, or involvement in the justice system. The journey in therapy can unearth underlying needs in a safe place with a vested partner such as myself on your path to wellness. I offer video sessions to those residing in California.

With over fifteen years of clinical experience, I utilize the Gottman method, attachment theory, and relational approaches.
Are you struggling to decide whether to stay or leave your relationship? It can be difficult to come to the kind of clarity one needs to make this decision. Is it hard to trust your gut and listen to your inner wisdom about how to move forward? Relationships can be very complex and sometimes we all need a little extra support to face these challenges and come to our best decisions.

I am also trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy to support couples to deepen intimacy and better navigate areas of conflict.
I support people who want to better understand their life decisions, relationships, and sense of self. Often people come to therapy for support processing family of origin issues, or because they are in partnerships that leave them feeling less secure, or they feel stuck in some aspect of life. I strive to support you in connecting to your own strengths, to live in the world with more ease and more self acceptance. A significant part of my approach is about empathy and carefully listening to help you in safely exploring your inner world and your many interconnections.

Are you struggling with relationships? Are you having the same fight with your partner over and over? Have you lost the emotional connection you used to have? Do you find yourself trapped in similar relationship dynamics in most of your relationships and feel helpless to change those negative patterns? Intimate relationships touch our deepest relational wounds. That's why we can be overwhelmed with the pain they bring and often, at points, feel like giving up. When attended to with gentleness and compassion these wounds can heal and we can experience a new level of connection and love - one which we couldn't have imagined.

I work with couples using the Gottman method, and I use several tools that I have learned over the years to address the particular needs of each client I work with.
Do you feel lost, questioning who you are or where you're going with no easy answers? Sometimes life takes an unexpected turn, we hit a bottom, or we just realize that something in us is different...or something must change. Such times of confusion and crisis are often the meeting point for our work together. They are also openings to self-discovery and real change. I listen deeply for what you want, develop a relationship of trust, and work WITH you to establish the clarity and direction you need.

Most of us have internalized the notion that refuge is to be found in external phenomena – other people, places and things. While these external phenomena can be pleasing, reality demonstrates that these phenomena are inherently impermanent and unsatisfactory. In addition, most of us have internalized our likes and dislikes in a way that have given rise to a crystallized belief in the existence of one’s self, the defense and protection of which has come to dictate much of our decision-making through adulthood.

With patient, careful, and non-judgmental guidance we can work to discover the deepest core of our beliefs, desires, and needs, expanding our stories and drawing meaning from our experiences. With this improved awareness, we can build tools and resources for addressing challenges, and perhaps more importantly, create a more peaceful relationship to those challenges. As a result, we become better at our relationships with ourselves and others.
