On this journey we call life we are all seeking connection and clarity amid chaos. We all want to be seen, heard, and validated. At times it is difficult to communicate the messages we desire to send in a manner our loved ones can accept. While attempting to communicate these messages conflict may arise. This can be frustrating resulting in hopelessness, confusion, and anxiety.
I specialize in couple and family therapy. I will assist you and your loved ones in identifying ineffective communication patterns, negative feedback loops and trauma responses. I will equip you with the skills and strategies to communicate in a meaningful and loving manner to assist you in fostering an authentic relationship with yourself and others.
I am passionate about couple and family work, as I believe in the power of togetherness. There are times when life is simply hard and exhausting and you feel like “throwing in the towel,” I want you to hold on to your towel and contact me first! I am looking forward to assisting you as you navigate some of life’s toughest moments.

For Trauma related issues, I would normally work with you for 12 sessions with cognitive processing therapy. We may include other empirical therapies, which we could discuss when we meet for our initial session. Most patients experience some symptom reduction within 4-6 session of engaging in therapy and consistent improvement thereafter.

I often use CPT Therapy in my practice. In our first session we will explore what brought you in and decide the most appropriate ways to assist you with making progress towards your goals. We will explore your index trauma and how it has affected your thinking patterns and social interactions with yourself and others. We will equip you with skills and tools to challenge cognitive distortions.
