About me

I am a licensed counselor and marriage and family therapists who is dedicated to helping individuals, couples, and families make sense of their experiences, conflicts and traumas to live more fulfilling and connected lives.

My primary focus as a practitioner is to first and foremost create and hold a safe space for my clients to explore the issues and challenges that most affect their relationships and overall quality of life. I meet my clients where they are so that together we can assess and identify goals for change and growth. I look at my clients through a strengths-based lens to help them marshal resiliency and cultivate healthy strategies for mitigating fear, anxiety and uncertainty that can arise as they actively engage in life’s complexities.

My approach is eclectic; I draw from attachment, communication, emotion focused, multi-generational, structural and contextual theories in family and couple therapy. With couples specifically, I use many of the tools developed by John and Julie Gottman as part of the Gottman method for building strong partnered relationships. In individual therapy, I draw from the cognitive and humanistic schools of cognitive behavioral therapy, existentialism, gestalt, emotion-focused, and internal family systems to help clients understand their perspectives, emotional states, personal narratives, and how these things impact their sense of peace and contentment with themselves and their loved ones. I work from a collaborative, trauma-informed model of fully informed consent to ensure therapeutic safety. I am also trained in EMDR and hypnosis and offer this treatment via referral or upon request for trauma processing.
