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.

It can be lonely and distressing to feel stuck in patterns of negative thinking, conflict, or disconnection from those most important to you.

Life is constantly designing and redesigning our emotional and behavior patterns unbeknownst to us. Neurological patterns get hardwired into our system, making it difficult to respond to the present when we are stuck in a pattern from the past. Past patterns can show up in the form of Relationship problems, Anxiety and Depression, feeling Stuck, or repetitive health issues. We'll make big shifts together if your mindset is growth oriented - meaning you prioritize your personal wellbeing and constantly choose growth over stagnation, and courage over comfort.

Do you feel like you have to wear a different mask for every area of your life? Can you express your sexuality with your friends, but have to hide it with your family? You may feel there isn't a way to move out of this paradox, or like every area of your life needs to change and it's too overwhelming to even start. You may feel like your sexuality and spirituality are oil and water, never to be mixed.

As a clinical psychologist trained as an integrationist, I enjoy working with people from a holistic perspective. I believe it is important to consider not only what is going on in the present, but also what has happened developmentally, biologically, interpersonally,and cognitively. In addition to conceptualizing our experiences as people from a systems perspective, I conduct individual, group, and family therapy using a DBT-informed frame of practice. What this means is that change comes about by learning new behaviors in a variety of contexts while balancing the reality of a person's situation and skill level with acceptance.
