About

Are you noticing a change in your relationship? Perhaps it feels like the connection is gone, you feel like you are more of a roommate with your partner, or you find yourselves fighting all of the time? You’re wondering if things will ever get better or back to the way they once were. You may be feeling scared, sad, angry, worried, or frustrated about what the future holds for your relationship. Or perhaps you are single and struggling in healing from a recent break-up, tend to notice patterns of choosing the “same type” of partner who really are not a good fit for you, or seem to have trouble with having relationships that you are happy with.

If this sounds familiar, then you’ve come to the right place. My passion is relationships! I work hard to stay on top of research on what makes relationships work. The skills that I teach the couples I work with are research based and have proven outcomes.

As a Gottman Level 2 trained therapist, I begin our work together with a comprehensive assessment, which helps me get a better picture of the story of your relationship, your relationship strengths, and your relationship growth areas. Together, we will identify goals you want to work on. I always emphasize to my couples that the "relationship" is my client. Then, I integrate Gottman's evidence based interventions into our work together to help you create the relationship that you desire.

My clients are single, married, or dating. I also work with engaged couples who are seeking pre-marital counseling or trying to iron out the kinks in the relationship before getting married.

In addition to my Gottman training, I am dually licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and as a Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC).
