"We are hard-wired for connection and so I focus on couple, family, and individual relationships. At their best, our close relationships feel like home - safe and secure places where joy and support abound. When relationships feel strained, or you’ve lost a sense of safety and stability, we struggle. In your partnership, you may be experiencing disconnection, repetitive fights, mistrust, infidelity, lack of intimacy, or loss of emotional connection. In my work with couples, I connect with each of your perspectives, working as a translator for your emotional needs and hurts, and helping you heal any fractures of trust or old wounds."
