I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who brings 20+ years of experience in a variety of settings to my work with couples, adults, and teens.
I am a true believer in the Gottman Method , partially because it is based on decades of research but mostly because I have found it highly effective with the many couples I have counseled. I also appreciate the realistic and structured approach of the Gottman coaching model which empowers couples to be able to learn and practice tools independent of the therapist.
I utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I have a certificate in utilizing Yoga in Psychotherapy as well as training in EMDR and Somatic Experiencing. I have also been a school social worker for over 15 years, accumulating expertise with children and teens diagnosed with Learning Disabilities, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Anxiety and Depression in a pragmatic, approachable way.
Couples describe me as “Funny, down to earth, practical and warm”. I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, used to perform stand up comedy, and love Restorative Yoga. I’ve been married for over 20 years and have two children.
I specialize in working with couples, trauma, and teens with special needs.
