I am a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist who is committed to helping couples resolve distressing patterns of interaction and rebuild safety, trust, respect, and loving feelings: this is my passion and the primary mission of my practice. With my training and experience, I provide a balanced, validating, and effective couple therapy experience, using research-validated approaches tailored to the situations and needs of my clients. In couple therapy, the right kind of help can make an immense and positive difference to seemingly stuck situations. Dissatisfaction or divorce doesn't have to be the outcome.

While I am a Certified EFT Therapist and Supervisor Candidate, I also pull from other scientifically-validated approaches (i.e. Gottman Method, IBCT, Discernment Counseling). My training in these approaches allows me to effectively help couples navigate rough spots and relational traumas (such as affairs), and revive dormant bonds.

I guide clients to clarity and resolution. I don't give up hope that relationships can improve when both partners are interested, and I help couples find closure to terminating relationships. Whether serving couples or individual partners, I provide a warm, engaged, and validating therapy that builds understanding and security.
