My Ideal Client

Have you been feeling disconnected from your partner? Working through transitional issues related to children, changes in careers, moving/adjustment, and/or retirement? Has there been an affair or other breach of trust? Have you tried having important conversations that end in arguments and never seem to find resolution? I'm here to help you reconnect with your love, your passion, yourself, and your goals.

My Background

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I specialize in couples therapy with an eclectic approach rooted in EFT, attachment, neuroscience, somatic experiencing, and IFS. I also work with individuals, utilizing my background in DBT, IFS, solution focused, and somatic/mindfulness based modalities. I am a certified yoga and mindfulness instructor, which dovetails quite well with my other therapeutic approaches. I really enjoy working with couples experiencing conflict, distress, and infidelity, as well as individuals struggling with anxiety, stress, time management/organization, depression, life transitions, addiction, and eating disorders.

My Approach to Helping

I believe that change is always possible. I tailor my therapeutic approaches to meet the needs of each individual client, couple, or family who I work with. I am trained in EFT, DBT, and solution focused methodologies. I operate from a trauma informed, body positive, feminist-informed framework. When I first meet with a couple I gather information about attachment and past relationships which will guys us in track patterns of interaction and inform our work doing the "EFT Tango", in later sessions. Throughout the therapeutic process, we will orchestrate increase vulnerability and connection through emotion-based enactments. In individual sessions I will gather information about your goals, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you accomplish these goals. I support LGBTQI activism and the BLM movement by staying engaged and promoting social justice in and outside of the therapy room.
