I typically see clients for problems around communication, contemplating divorce, sexual desire/dysfunction, infidelity, or reoccurring arguments that cause bigger problems.
Relationships are incredibly rewarding but often challenge us in more ways than expected. Strong relationships are the foundation for a thriving life but for a variety of reasons, life gets in the way of thriving. Maybe you are looking for your relationship to thrive again or maybe you feel your problem is much bigger. No matter the issue, I believe therapy can help. My goal is for couples to look at themselves, their partner and their relationship in a new light. This creates the potential to have passionate and connected relationships while also growing as individuals.

I work with couples and individuals seeking help with improving their relationships due to communication barriers, infidelity, frequent conflict, parenting issues, separation or divorce, and more.
Relationships can be difficult. I work with clients to develop and execute plans to help them reach the goals they would like to achieve; both individually and within the context of their relationships. Therapy is a collaborative process, and I work hard to ensure my clients feel comfortable, well informed about their treatment goals and progress, and that the therapeutic methods being used align the two. In this space of authenticity and safety, clients are able to reach the insight and connection they've been missing in their relationships with themselves, their partners, and others.

I have experience working with individuals and couples and am passionate about working with issues of identity exploration, intimacy, grief, trauma, and infidelity.
I think we are all wired for and worthy of love and connection. Whether that is connection to ourselves or to others, I believe the desire to belong lives inside each of us. That doesn’t mean it’s easy, though. There can be so many places where shame, doubt, old wounds, and miscommunication disorient and disconnect us. As a therapist, I consider it a great privilege to be invited into your world and to get to partner with you as we collaboratively work through some of the things that might be keeping you stuck.

I believe that all humans have the capacity for growth, but that growth is often thwarted by a lack of self-compassion or self-confrontation. I aim to help clients nurture their deepest and most hidden wounds, to examine the motives driving their actions, and to access new levels of joy and fulfillment by honoring the best parts of themselves. I specialize in working with couples where the power is imbalanced between partners, often resulting in feelings of helplessness.
