About My Clients

Healthy couples are my passion! I utilize a psychodynamic approach that places the couples issues in the context of their lived experience and EFT which will give us the tools to de-escalate conflict, identify your particular negative communication cycle, and then increase nurturing, bonding, and intimacy. I work with couples of all kinds and at every stage of their relationship. I also work with individuals treating a broad range of human struggles. Please see my website for more info.

My Background and Approach

I believe our primary relationships impact us on a deep and lasting level and therefore the health of these relationships is vital to our well-being. Are there old wounds, bad habits, or a general feeling of discontent getting in the way of your relationship? I have the education, training, and expertise to help you get the relationship that you have always wanted. Throughout the therapy experience, you and your partner can move from distance to bonding, isolation to intimacy, and confused communication to understanding. Relationships can be hard. But they are so important to our sense of well-being, health, and happiness. You can learn how to be more skilled in relationships: setting boundaries, getting your needs met, and improving communication, so that you can have the relationships you desire.
