Every person is unique and valuable, and each offers the world something important. Sometimes the busyness of life, both internal and external, clouds our vision and makes remembering this difficult.

I am also passionate about supporting the LGBTQ community and have worked with many different couple dynamics in this realm.
Romantic relationships are straight-up DIFFICULT! As someone who has been married for almost a decade, I can relate. As we all know, relationships come with ups and downs but what do we do when the downs linger for too long and we begin to feel completely disconnected? In my work with couples, my first priority is to provide a safe, judgment-free, and empathetic environment where each partner feels safe to express themselves openly. As an EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapist) my approach is very authentic and warm.

Life isn’t what you expected. Perhaps something happened that you never imagined would happen to you and it threw all of your life plans off course. Or maybe you look in the mirror and just don’t recognize the person you see. Either way, your life has taken a turn and suddenly you’re in unchartered territory feeling unprepared, lost, afraid, and alone. Guess what? You’re not alone. I can help you process the unexpected, regain control of yourself, move forward to create life-altering changes and establish a reality that is likely better than you can visualize right now.

I am attuned to the social constructs and struggles LGBTQ individuals face on a daily basis such as oppression, discrimination, and marginalization.
My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe space to explore issues that have created significant barriers to growth, healing, and change. If you've experienced a stressful, troubling event that's left you feeling powerless, you may have been traumatized. I utilize the latest research to help those affected to not only begin the process of healing, but learn how to engage and effectively diminish and manage symptoms. I am trauma-informed, with training in mind body bridging, a holistic therapeutic approach incorporating the mind, body, spirit, and emotions that support the healing process. I am also trained in IBSR, and EMDR.
