I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors.

A lifelong student and teacher of the psychological and spiritual life, I am significantly influenced by the writings of psychologist Carl Jung and others, as well as spiritual teachers of various faiths. I generally work with clients from a combination of psychological modalities with one direction in mind - allowing the needs of the client to direct the way. Deeper work may also be necessary to unearth old wounds and resolve unhealthy patterns of behavior. I am also skilled in helping those who are transitioning through changes in career, life, and relationships.

***I am no longer taking new clients.*** My work is focused on providing relief and healing for any individuals who have experienced abuse, neglect, or psychological trauma like trafficking, sexual assault, death of a loved one, accidents, disasters, or racial/systemic oppression. Treatment can be intensive if that's helpful, and I am able to offer double sessions, and telehealth in between sessions. I have lots of success with clients whose past treatment hasn't worked, or whose trauma/abuse is particularly intense. My primary interest is in figuring out what you need, and walking with you until you reach it.

Congratulations on taking steps to getting support! Therapy is a way to not feel so alone with our pain, change our thoughts and behaviors so they are more adaptive and healthy, and allow us to live in a more expansive way. I see you as the expert on you, and my role as an expert in healing, together we collaborate to get you where you want to be in life. Brain science, attachment theory (childhood relationship with our caregivers), and the context of our culture (as it intersects with our identities) are the lenses I use to strengthen your awareness, feel feelings, and heal. Laughter and peace are a necessary part of healing too!

We have become so lost in our disconnection that I am struggling to find a way back to the relationship. I want to be able to re-connect on a deeper, more intimate level and help silence the ghosts from the past that continue to separate us. I want to be able to feel love and trust for my partner”.

As a family therapist, I believe that each family, couple and individual has the ability to heal using their own internal strengths. My focus is on restoring balance and building communication within families as they are integral in increasing the overall well-being of individuals, couples and families. I identify symptoms such as marital discord, addiction, behavioral issues among children and adolescents, mental and medical health issues as becoming an unhelpful part of the family system. My approach to reduce the impact of these symptoms and break harmful patterns is collaborative, encouraging members to be open and honest throughout the progression of therapy.

Struggling right now? I believe that real happiness is possible, but often the path is elusive. Life continually challenges us and forces us to grow, but sometimes growth and change can be painful. The good news is that you are not alone. There is help to get you to the other side. If it is a deep loss now or in the past, struggle in relationship, divorce, loss of children, a loss of connection, or a loss of meaning, I want you to know that there is hope. I will meet you where you are in your struggle, and we will find a path forward. Together we will solve the thing that confronts and confounds you, and grow peace in its place.

My approach to therapy is primarily based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). A core idea in ACT is that trying too hard to get rid of or control our emotions tends to backfire. Instead of trying to get rid of unwanted thoughts and feelings, I will help you learn to react differently to them so that you can keep your focus on living a meaningful and fulfilling life based on what’s important to you. We will work together to set meaningful goals to address your concerns–whether they relate to life transitions, depression, anxiety, body image, grief/loss, job or academic stress, or gender and sexuality.
