About

Welcome. The work that we will do collaboratively strives to help you gain tools and accesses resources within yourself to help create positive movement in your life. I work alongside individuals as new interpersonal experiences are created that allow for detachment and separation from old patterns. Through this process it is possible to redirect your focus, and process experiences and ideas in a new way that can lend to improved communication and decision-making strategies to help support you in reaching your current goals.
In this work I feel that connection and trust are essential. I strive to achieve this through an empathetic, accepting presence that invites you to explore all aspects of your wellbeing. In my career I have worked with people from various cultures, backgrounds, and lifestyles. I have experience with a broad range of populations, symptoms, and diagnosis including anxiety, depression, mood disorders, grief and loss, trauma, and transitions. I am trained in the evidenced-based method Gottman Couples Therapy. My work with couples focuses on creating a space which allows for both people to express their internal experiences to their partner. It can be easy to disregard the importance of feeling heard and understood especially by our partner. Here we can work to enhance these experiences by establishing a safe place where you can hear one another and work to better understand each other’s perspective. The Gottman approach not only works to build the emotional connection, good communication, friendship and a strong sense of “we”, but also teaches skills and tools for effective conflict resolution, compromise, and an ability to create shared meaning and goals together.
Whether you are married, living together, premarital, polyamorous, in an open relationship, LGBTQ, or any other relationship status, I treat all relationships equally in my work and am accepting of your goals for the relationship.
