About

Are you having difficulties communicating your needs and emotions with others, especially your partner? Are you feeling concerned, hopeless, and burnt out in your relationship? Feeling as if you are stuck in this cycle that does not seem to ever end? All of these areas start to affect our everyday life and of course our relationships. I enjoy working with couples and individuals utilizing an Emotionally Focused lens. My goal is to help you find a new form of balance and help you find your "super powers", especially while living through a pandemic.
I work with couples and individuals. I specialize in improving boundaries, communication skills, life transitions, self-harm, anxiety, and depression. I have training in Gottman Method (Level 1 and 2), Emotionally Focused Therapy, Cognitive Based, Dialectical Based, and Mindfulness skills. I strongly use humanistic and person-center theory.
To me, therapy is a journey of sharing personal problems, concerns, and stories. This work is deeply personal, and I am honored to have the privilege to be included in this journey and to be trusted with your stories. I truly believe every client is unique and provides unique "super powers" to this world.
