Many of my clients report that our work has changed their lives. Clients share that they moved from feeling hopeless to feeling happy to be alive; from being overwhelmed by grief to feeling joyful again, even as they carry their grief; and they share how good and empowering it feels to live from the heart. I specialize in adults and couples (all sexual orientations; all types of relationships). My goal for you is not only to reap the benefits of feeling better because your depression has lifted or your anxiety has quelled, but to thrive, in every way.

Training in Emotionally Focused Therapy has helped me tremendously in working with couples and individuals. I enjoy couples counseling, helping partners to see their trauma in the marriage. Teaching couples about their negative cycle and how to work through their pain. I believe that trauma is the root of our issues and why we use our dysfunction in dealing with life. Depression, anxiety, addiction can all be linked back to childhood traumas or other life traumatic events. I also work with individuals as well as teenagers.
