I have always been a helper. In the first grade my compassion got me into trouble for reassuring a classmate that the teacher wouldn't mind if he removed the tape over his mouth to eat his recess snack. Needless to say, she minded. In high school I was the "go to" person for friends who were having all sorts of relationship problems. This pattern continued through college. I guess it is no surprise that I now help people solve their problems for a living.

I work with individuals, couples, and families, specializing in supporting clients to resolve their pain, stress, negative stories, and/or relationship concerns. I work with communication, trust, emotional connection, life transitions, preparing for marriage, loss, and trauma. In couples work, I'll help you to resolve any recurring disagreements, work through stuck places, and repair old wounds. Together, we create a new way of connecting that is more satisfying, open, and effective. As a therapist of color, I take great care to cultivate a space that honors inclusivity and diversity and reduces the stigma of therapy.

I believe in the power of authentic connection with others to promote resilience and healing. My emphasis on connection is especially important during this time of distancing, both for my individual clients and the couples and families I work with. I use a client-centered, collaborative, and empathic approach to therapy to meet my clients where they are and create a warm and trusting environment. I also integrate a variety of therapeutic approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), EMDR therapy, the Gottman method for couple therapy, family systems, mindfulness meditation, and expressive techniques.

You made it home. Everybody is glad you're back but you're miserable - and guilty - because you'd rather be there than here. You have relationship, porn and alcohol problems and miss the structure that got you through every day. Most of all, you miss your friends. They're the only ones who really get it: Going into an insurgents house, you know there's a change in plan just by reading your Sergeant's eyes. Going into your house, your partner can talk for hours and you still don't know what they want! No wonder you watch the war channel all night.
