I especially love to work with couples and individuals who are having difficulty getting along or communicating better with their significant other or in other relationships.
Sometimes things just aren’t working. Some feel emotional or have a hard time connecting with others. Some struggle to make things better but don’t always have an idea of how. These folks want to feel better and be better. They want their relationships to improve. They want to accomplish their life goals. They have the awareness that things are not working out the way they would like but are needing more insight, guidance or coaching to help things flow better. They are looking for somebody to help them to find a better way, to remove obstacles or heal from old emotional wounds. Also get “Living Your Best Self” guide on my website.

For couples considering divorce who are not certain this is the right decision, I offer discernment counseling: a short-term approach of 1-5 sessions that will help you slow down, take a breath, and look at your options for your marriage.
*Currently accepting new discernment clients* Satisfying relationships are an essential part of a healthy life. Relationships don't come with a user's manual and we're never taught how to work through conflicts. Whether you feel stuck re-enacting the same battles again and again or you’ve noticed a distance that keeps growing in your relationship, you can learn how to stop drawing the battle lines and move from drifting apart to coming together. Relationship problems don't get better on their own. I can help you create a clear vision for the relationship you want and help you navigate through the challenges you face.

My extensive training in Trauma, Couples Therapy and Sex Therapy informs my work.
The therapeutic relationship can be a very important one and, like any other healthy relationship, it is based on mutual respect, trust and commitment. I approach our work together with a nonjudgmental stance. I will meet you wherever you are in your life's journey and honor your unique strengths. I support clients in creating their most fulfilling lives, in line with their values and goals. I incorporate mindfulness into a collaborative and client-centered process and employ an honest, direct communication.

EXCLUSIVELY TELEHEALTH through at least 12/31/20; not currently accepting new clients. I have helped individuals and couples with problems such as relationship problems, anxiety, depression, other mood disorders, preoccupations with food and weight, substance abuse disorders, gender dysphoria, and recovery from trauma. I prefer to use a narrative approach in my clinical work, though I welcome and encourage client feedback and incorporate tools and ideas from a variety of practice models to help meet clients' needs. Narrative therapy is based on the idea that "the person is never the problem, the problem is the problem."

I see couples , individuals, & families for: dating/relationship issues, anxiety, couples counseling (infidelity, alcohol misuse, how social media affects connection, & pre-marital), college/graduate student stress, divorce, blended families, co-dependency, grief & loss, harsh self-narratives, & concerns with spirituality, indecision, and uncertainty.
My accepting approach is secured in the notion that we all deserve to be welcomed just as we are, including the problems and struggles we bear. Even if our problems have no straightforward answers, we can learn to live with and through them when we are better connected to ourselves and others. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I aspire to enable this connection. My training is rooted in Systems Theory, which views individuals, couples , and families through their relationship network. I take care to recognize how family of origin, cultural, and contextual factors inform our habits, perceptions, and sense of well-being.
