My Approach

My goal is to help you regain purpose, and enjoy life and your relationships. Though I use a lot of research-based treatment, I don't believe everyone fits in a box. To the best of my ability, I strive to collaborate with people to create a plan that fits their personality, their relationship, or their family. I encourage people to practice new skills regularly so they become new, healthy habits and I will challenge you to think creatively about your situation and abilities.

My Background

My background has given me a strong root in social justice, art, music, and research-based methods for therapy. These days I incorporate that foundation into creating an intuitive but solution-focused strategy to help people feel better, have better relationships, or make a change they've dreamed about. My training in Gottman methods has given me effective tools for helping couples develop deeper intimacy, better conflict management, and stronger relationships. I specialize in working with teenagers, and collaborating with parents to help them reach mental health and continue on into healthy independence. Additionally, I work within the GLBTQ and poly communities and strive to maintain a safe space for these clients to obtain counseling. I practice with my dog Phoenix, a German Shepard/Rottweiler mix who is talkitive and loves pets.
