My style of therapy is very much like my personality: down to earth, humble, funny, slightly sarcastic, direct, and blunt in a loving way.

About My Clients

Many problems in relationships happen because we just don’t know how to talk to each other. Emotions run high in our love relationships, and talking when you feel overwhelmed or if you don’t have the right tools makes the conversation even more difficult. Couples often feel confused because it is difficult to know where to go to learn new skills. Therapy is a safe place to learn the techniques of healthy conversations in relationships. My work with couples includes helping them learn new ways.

My Background and Approach

I practice the Gottman Method of Couples Therapist. I work with clients who understand that healthy communication isn't something you are automatically born knowing how to do. It's a skill that you learn and you don't have to feel guilty that you aren't already perfect at it.I have extensive experience with couples who are working through addiction recovery, want pre-marital counseling, and/or are LGBTQIA identified. I also love working with couples and individuals who struggle with being people pleasers and find it difficult to ask for their needs in relationships.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have a sense of humor about myself, and I encourage my clients to adopt the same attitude. I hope you come away with the feeling I am really invested in you. Telling me your thoughts and feeling won’t scare me, surprise me or make me judge you.
