About My Clients

I enjoy working with individuals who have the courage to seek support with relationship issues, career/life transitions, self-esteem/worth, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, addiction, sexuality, gender identity, spirituality, search for meaning, and general stuckness. The common issues couples face that I can help with in couples counseling include communication, betrayal/infidelity, sex/intimacy, life transitions, addiction, premarital counseling, and divorce/separation.

My Background and Approach

I recognize that goodness/wholeness exists in everyone, so my goal is to help you reconnect with your true self to access the health, happiness, connection, and integration that is your birthright as a human being. As a professional trained in couples, marriage, and family therapy, I work with both individuals and couples from a relationship-focused lens. I use an integrated, systemic approach to counseling that draws primarily from existential humanism, emotionally focused therapy, internal family systems, psychodynamics, and structural theory. I practice culturally-sensitive counseling with all types of people, including straight, gay, queer, trans, non-binary, poly, and kink. I hold credentials as a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe it is important to walk the talk. I've been engaged in my own intensive personal growth work for more than two decades. People who have worked with me appreciate my highly attuned presence, to which I attribute a daily meditation practice that enables me to show up fully present in all areas of my life and work. Because I value the human experience and each person's innate worth and wisdom, I work dynamically and collaboratively with couples and individual adults on their paths toward personal and relationship fulfillment. It is my goal to help to bring awareness of how old habits and patterns of interaction may be interfering with what's happening for you in the present.
