Our lives are made up of relationships, whether they be familial, romantic, or friendly. These relationships can be sources of both great joy and great conflict, and can have a huge impact on our daily lives and well-being. Relational therapy gives you the opportunity to work on any issues that may have arisen in your relationship, and it can also highlight some of your relationship's greatest strengths. In our work together, we can rebuild, repair, and strengthen the important relationships in your life. I understand that your life is busy and time is limited. For your convenience, I offer limited evening and weekend appointments.

I bring a straightforward, no-nonsense vibe, often peppered with a bit of sarcasm and colorful language when I'm not holding back. Thanks to my ongoing battle with ADHD, sometimes tying up my thoughts neatly can be a challenge. But despite not always being the picture of perfection, my journey of self-discovery, background in therapy, and a solid decade immersed in mental health have equipped me to guide you toward inner peace. So, why not team up and embark on a journey to improve your life? After all, what's the worst that could happen?

Do you feel like you've tried everything? You love each other so much and want to figure this out, but you seem to just go around in circles. There are things you need to talk about in your relationship, but you aren't sure how to bring them up without defensiveness or more hurt feelings. When this happens, you start to feel so frustrated because you just don't know what to do. You're afraid that if you don't learn how to communicate differently, you will feel even further apart or the worst case scenario, end up leaving each other. This would be such a loss because when times are good they are great. You could really use some help.

From exploring childhood wounds, to unraveling traumatic experiences, to managing stress and anxiety, to confronting depression, to identity exploration, to navigating complex relationship dynamics, to systemic injustice, to living in a world that can be demanding and overwhelming.

I work with folks who want to explore communication issues, polyamory/ENM, kink, differing levels of desire, ambivalence, jealousy, power and control issues, curiosities about uncoupling consciously, and more.
