"I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors."

"Are you working towards a fulfilling life but feel stuck or overwhelmed? Are you hurting inside and unsure of where to turn? Most of our struggles stem from our relationships with others and we often need tools for healing these wounds. Although talk is helpful, the research shows that tapping into the right brain where emotions are housed is vital in transforming long-standing issues or limiting beliefs. Utilizing Experiential approaches including EMDR, Brainspotting, inner parts work, and Somatic therapies we can heal the mind and body. "

I hope to collaborate with you to build resilience, transform old patterns and find new pathways to growth and change. Our bodies are foundational to our moment-to-moment experience, holding wisdom that can help us grow and make meaning. Because trauma is often held in the body, we can use somatic mindfulness and more to learn what our body and mind need to set better boundaries, enhance relational connection, and integrate trauma-related feelings and memories.
