Every couple is different, every couple is complicated, and every couple has trouble talking about one or more key issues. In your first session I will quickly assess what isn't working in your relationship and build a plan to eliminate the problem. I will help facilitate effective communication, make sure the sessions are emotionally safe, and teach practical methods for getting your thoughts and feelings across. My job is not to figure out who is right and who is wrong, my job is to help. ​I tend to work with couples each week for 8-12 weeks.

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.

It’s already hard enough to sit in feelings of uncertainty, hurt, or frustration. It’s even more difficult to accept vulnerability and reach out for support when we tend to fear judgement. Therapy has been portrayed as a stigma towards mental illness, but there’s more to the therapeutic process than just “treating an illness”. I am here to process emotions and thoughts with you while giving you alternative perspectives to reflect on. Processing released emotions allow relief which then provides me the opportunity to guide my clients in adopting and utilizing new tools and skills towards recovery.

Grief comes out of nowhere and slams you - hard. Whether you've recently lost a family member, career, your health, or someone or something else that you hold dear, the loss can knock you off-center. You used to manage your life pretty well, but now you can barely keep things together. You're distracted and irritable. You want to get back to normal, but you don't know how to get through the intense feelings that threaten to overwhelm you. And if your child or teen has also been affected by this loss, it's even more difficult to envision what "normal" might look like for your family, or how to get there.
