About

My predominant focus is with couples and families, with a focus in neurodivergence, difficult life transitions, infidelity recovery, intimacy issues, blended family matters, family planning, and trauma. With individuals, I work with trauma, anxiety, ASD and ADHD, depression, LGBTQIA issues, sexual assault/ violence, and self esteem building. My main goal is to meet clients where they are in the moment. The focus of treatment is to create a safe space in which people can explore and understand their internal parts and systems, and disrupt old relational patterns that leave them feeling stuck and unsatisfied.
I use a trauma-informed, integrated approach built in structural family therapy, experiential therapy, and internal family systems. Together with the client, I focus on identifying parts and relationships that create conflict or discomfort, and work to create an empathetic space focused on healing, boundaries, and disruption of dysfunctional patterns.
Healing can be a difficult journey, but rewarding when we give ourselves permission to be curious about the wounded parts of ourselves and our relationships. I seek to help increase personal insight and growth, while empowering clients to identify and express themselves collaboratively to reach their desired goals.
