About My Clients

I am a skilled and flexible practitioner that works to attune to each unique story. The couples I treat come for pre-martial counseling to uncoupling and everything in between. Most people want to work on communication and issues around connection and intimacy. I have the experience and additional training to help you and your partner achieve your goals. You will find a compassionate and non-judgmental space for whatever you are struggling with.

My Background and Approach

As a passionate couples therapist, 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. Every struggle contains a kernel of hope and the possibility for renewed connection and intimacy. Together we can identify and address what needs to be strengthened and nurtured between the two of you and what blocks are keeping you from having the relationship you desire. Some couples come to therapy with the question of whether they should stay together…this is ok too! I do not push an agenda for you but rather help you explore what is right for yourselves and your relationship. If you decide to part ways we can do so in a way that honors the time that you spent together and allows each of you time to process what you have learned, the sadness of ending, and the new possibilities.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am religiously literate and would love to support your spiritual journey. As an LGBTQ affirming practitioner, I provide a unique niche for those who are LGBTQ persons of faith and a safe space for those that have been harmed by unsupportive or toxic religious backgrounds.
