About

Some commonly believed myths about couples counseling are (1) it’s the first step to divorce or separation, (2) a partner is going to feel outnumbered and gained up on, and (3) it involves nothing but tears, sweat, and pain. I am passionate about helping couples heal and rebuild trust after experiencing hurt, neglect, or an affair. I am all about helping couples find their spark again developing habits and communication patterns that help connect them and feel understood by one another. Couples therapy can be fun! Humor lowers tensions and brings a sense of lightheartedness into therapy, reminding us all that we’re only human.
I listen empathically to each partner and strive to gain a complete picture of the relationship. I help each client feel safe in expressing their feelings and emotions to their partner. We then strengthen the trust and commitment in the relationship by exploring the positive, sharing admiration for one another, managing conflict and regulating emotions.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist at Sunstone Counseling working along Amy Clay, LPC. I am currently only offering virtual therapy sessions and hope to offer in-person sessions in the near future!
