I specialize in working with couples and folks who want help relating. You'll find me compassionate, grounded, non-judgmental and trauma-informed. And you'll find our work to be depth-oriented and present-focused. We'll focus on alleviating the hurt that is bringing you into therapy right from the start with a longer-term goal of healing. I use mindfulness and somatics to help you attend to limiting thoughts and how you experience them in the body; build feelings awareness and gently address patterns in your life that have you stuck, uncovering strength & resilience. I'm EMDR trained and somatically oriented, because feelings occur in the body and have wisdom to share. I have advanced couples therapy training in the Developmental Model and EFT and continue to study the work of Stan Tatkin, Esther Perel & Terry Real, so I provide truly helpful, structured, focused couples work. My master's degree is in Integral Counseling Psychology from CIIS.
