Announcement icon I am accepting new clients and offer video/telehealth services.
If you take the courageous step of starting counseling, for yourself or your relationship, it is important your therapist feels like a good fit. To help you in your search - my style is curious, empathic, collaborative, and warm with a touch of humor. I specialize in relationship issues between couples and teen families, in addition to general issues like anxiety, depression, self-worth, and healing from past pain or trauma. Using your inherent strengths, I'll guide you in unearthing buried pain to facilitate healing. Together, we create a path towards more satisfying relationships, effective communication, and emotional connection.
I work with couples experiencing disconnection, repetitive fights, broken trust, sexual concerns, or shutting down. I work with both perspectives, serving as a translator for your emotional needs. With teen families, I am skilled in connecting with your teen's struggles. Then, we create a space for open communication, reconnection and effective parenting.
I also specialize in families dealing with separation/divorce, co-parenting, and the blending of families. I help your family with issues such as grieving past relationships, creating collaborative parenting plans, building effective communication and establishing appropriate boundaries. I am an LGBTQ, non-monogamy-affirming, culturally humble therapist.
