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.

Life can be hard and many of us feel out of control or alone. I believe we are meant to have connections with others in order to create bonds that provide the framework of how we interpret the world around us as well as our own sense of self. When crisis and conflict occur, and these relationships are challenged, life can seem impossible-but this is where interpersonal growth can occur. No matter what the issue, finding the desire and courage to overcome these challenges is a personal and important decision. Choosing the therapist who is the right fit for you is the next step.

A lifelong student and teacher of the psychological and spiritual life, I am significantly influenced by the writings of psychologist Carl Jung and others, as well as spiritual teachers of various faiths. I generally work with clients from a combination of psychological modalities with one direction in mind - allowing the needs of the client to direct the way. Deeper work may also be necessary to unearth old wounds and resolve unhealthy patterns of behavior. I am also skilled in helping those who are transitioning through changes in career, life, and relationships.

Congratulations on taking steps to getting support! Therapy is a way to not feel so alone with our pain, change our thoughts and behaviors so they are more adaptive and healthy, and allow us to live in a more expansive way. I see you as the expert on you, and my role as an expert in healing, together we collaborate to get you where you want to be in life. Brain science, attachment theory (childhood relationship with our caregivers), and the context of our culture (as it intersects with our identities) are the lenses I use to strengthen your awareness, feel feelings, and heal. Laughter and peace are a necessary part of healing too!

My goal is to help you discover your own solutions to your problems and concerns in an environment that is welcoming, empathetic and non-judgmental.
