When working with individuals, I pull primarily from an IFS perspective. I have advanced training in IFS. Together we will invite your emotions and identify them as messengers to guide your healing. We will use ritual, art, story telling and more to explore all the parts of yourself that have a voice. Our work will dive into your body story, uncovering your inherent worthiness and wisdom.
I believe that we are conceived in relationship and continue to move in, out, and through relationships our entire lives. These relationships teach us how to love, how to hurt, how to learn, how to exist in our bodies, how to judge and hold prejudice, how to forgive. They can bring the wounding cut of betrayal, and also hold tremendous power for healing.
I have additional training specifically in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and attachment theory. I believe engaging in the emotional climate of a couple is where change happens.
I believe the intersection of our identities is the foundation for our experience in the world and will influence the work we do together. Our work will wrap around the ways in which your body has been privileged or oppressed and how that shows up in your relationships. I have a strong commitment to Social Justice and believe deeply that the path to justice is through relationships.

I am a dedicated relationship counselor and have pursued specific additional training for working with couples.
Couples (neurotypical and neurodiverse) who have had a child diagnosed or suspect that their child could be diagnosed autism experience tremendous stress and general lack of community support. I support couples who are working hard to be advocates for their kids and balance home, work, and personal lives. I am deeply invested in this work and will support couples at any stage in their journey.
