Announcement icon I am accepting new clients and offer telehealth services. Superbills are provided for telehealth.
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.
