We are hard-wired for connection and so I focus on couple, family, and individual relationships. At their best, our close relationships feel like home - safe and secure places where joy and support abound. When relationships feel strained, or you’ve lost a sense of safety and stability, we struggle. In your partnership, you may be experiencing disconnection, repetitive fights, mistrust, infidelity, lack of intimacy, or loss of emotional connection. In my work with couples, I connect with each of your perspectives, working as a translator for your emotional needs and hurts, and helping you heal any fractures of trust or old wounds.

With adolescent families, I'm skilled in connecting with their experience, struggles, and pain. From here, I support your teen in understanding their discomfort more fully. Then, we mutually create a space for open and honest communication, as I support your family in having greater understanding, openness, responsiveness, and engagement with one another.

Additionally, I am skilled in working with families going through separation/divorce or blending of families. I help prepare your family for challenges ahead such as grieving past relationships, establishing collaborative parenting plans, effective communication and creating appropriate boundaries. I look forward to working with you to create lasting change.
