Our first priority when we meet will be to establish trust and mutual respect in the relationship so that you begin to feel comfortable and safe. Therapy can be a rewarding experience but for many people it can feel daunting and unfamiliar at first. Our initial sessions will be focused on establishing safety. I also believe that clients are best served by helping them to understand their own experiences, strengths and by exploring both positive and traumatic experiences from their past. I take a teaching approach, often providing education about attachment and neuroscience, as clients express interest.

To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you are screaming. You're hiding the obsessive thoughts and "crazy" compulsions you engage in so you can maybe lower your level of anxiety. You can't sleep due to your anxiety. You've tried to make changes, but it never gets better. These are secrets that you think no one will understand.

Hello. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who works with couples and individuals needing help with relationship issues. I thrive on working with couples struggling with infidelity, rebuilding trust or communication/fair fighting and high conflict. The dynamic of a couple is unique and should be approached as such. I believe that every relationship can work and be healthy for both partners if both partners are willing to do the work and make changes. I am also trained in work with personality disorders and am able to help in both individual and couples dynamics with narcissistic, borderline, and histrionic individuals.

I use an eclectic therapeutic approach that draws from many modalities to best meet your needs. I would like to work with you to learn about your goals and discuss how I can help you achieve them.

If we are not sure where to begin, we may talk about some important questions that may help us find a place to start: What do you live for? What matters to you?

You’ve been feeling “off” for a while now. Your life isn’t necessarily falling apart but you’re not happy. You’ve thought about going to therapy many times but then you end up procrastinating. You tell yourself you should be able to figure this out on your own and that therapy is for people with problems worse than yours. But lately something has tipped the scales. Most of the time you handle your emotions pretty well but now it’s too much with everything you have going on. You’re stressed, anxious or depressed. Some days you’re not even sure how you feel.
