My Approach to Helping

Therapy with me isn’t awkward or impersonal; I value the process of building relationships, and am very interactive. My style is warm, direct, intuitive, quirky, and irreverent. I trust my gut, offer reflections, connect dots, identify patterns, reframe problems, explore significance, and offer practical solutions. With couples, by observing your present-moment interactions I assess how you've polarized based on attachment styles, family patterns, trauma, archetypes, core emotions, basic fears, drives, and universal human needs. I then intervene in subtle but profound ways to halt dysfunction and reframe your dilemmas in ways that are loving and kind. I model empathy, mind-body awareness and compassionate communication skills as you learn to heal and reconnect. All work is online, including a free initial consultation; intake documents; and telehealth visits. Individuals, couples and families alike can all expect "homework" between sessions to help you reach your goals quickly.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Coronavirus/COVID-19 External link

    This pandemic is affecting us all in a number of ways. Whether you’re feeling trapped because you’re alone, or because you’re stuck with people who drive you nuts; whether you’re panicking because you’re out of work, or because you face the unique challenges of being an essential worker; I’m confident that together we can find ways to help you better weather this storm.

  • Compassion Fatigue External link

    I love working with nurses, social workers and the like because they are among the world’s most genuinely good-hearted people, and life asks a lot of them. The path of the wounded healer is often tied to ancestral trauma, and childhood messages about your worth and purpose. Let’s help you re-examine those beliefs and learn to take better care of yourself.

  • Polyamorous and Open Relationships External link

    Relationships are living, breathing, dynamic processes. Not all adhere to a mono-normative structure, nor do they need to in order to be meaningful. My role as a therapist is to understand what makes your close relationships significant to you, and help you live according to your personal desires and values. I provide counseling for individuals, couples and moresomes.

  • Self-Esteem External link

    Life is hard enough as it is. Why make it harder by beating yourself up? Self-worth is one of the most consistently reported gains I hear from my clients. It’s hard to hate yourself when you spend an hour a week talking to someone who sees what’s uniquely miraculous about you - and that’s my gift.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    Relationships have a bigger impact on longevity than diet and exercise combined. If your relationship is in trouble, you might not be able to eat, sleep, or concentrate. I can help you learn to stop conflict before it starts; understand yourself and your loved one better; or figure out when it’s time to call it quits. Many couples report significant improvement in just four sessions.
