About My Clients

I care deeply about empowering couples & individuals in embodying their fullest interpersonal potential. My intention is to provide a therapeutic space where folks of all identities feel seen, safe and soothed. I am passionate about supporting individuals in overcoming limiting beliefs that get in the way of their autonomy, growth and freedom.

My Background and Approach

I am a sex-positive couples therapist. I practice Gottman Method Couples Therapy, which integrates empirical evidence on what makes love last. Based on 40 years of relationship research, the Gottman approach takes the guess-work out of how we can cultivate strong & lasting relationships. When working to increase sexual & emotional intimacy, I practice Imago Relationship Therapy. I use Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or “Tapping”) to help clients reduce stress, panic and anxiety. Tapping is a confluence of mindfulness, self-compassion, exposure therapy, and accessing the body’s ability to down-regulate our stress response through acupuncture points. Tapping is also highly effective in healing traumatic experiences and desensitizing both context specific & interpersonal triggers.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

No doubt there are benefits to personal expressions of spirituality. What is not often discussed, is the potential for individuals to experience religious trauma from the misuse of faith-based power. Adverse Religious Experiences can have long-term impacts on our psyche, emotions and self-worth. I understand the impact religious wounds can have on our day-to-day lives. I can appreciate the importance of finding a safe place to process these wounds and discover internal resources necessary to heal.
