About

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I understand where couples get stuck and can help them make better sense of their relationship. I work with couples who feel lonely and frustrated and crave a safe haven where they can talk about their worries, fears and concerns without fear of judgment, disappointment or shame.

I help couples deal with moments of disconnection and create a space of safety where partners can reconnect with one another and provide shelter from heightened conflict, increased hostility and distress.

“Home” is in the arms of another, and with repetitive fights, misunderstandings and difficult communication styles, we often find ourselves yearning for that secure base we once had. Exasperated and hopeless when things don’t go as planned, we can feel more alone in our relationships than ever. We need loving contact like we need oxygen, and couples counseling can be a secure place to bridge the gap, speak more from the heart and work through tough seasons of life together.

I’ve been helping individuals and couples since 2015 and have an accomplished background. I have completed all 3 levels of Gottman Method Couples Therapy training to help improve friendship, lessen conflict and strengthen the couple’s bond.
