About My Clients

I specialize in working with couples & adolescent families in overcoming roadblocks in your relationships by supporting each person in feeling seen, heard & understood. Also, I work with individuals struggling with self-worth, relationship challenges or those hoping to heal from past pain or trauma. Using your inherent strengths, I'll guide you in unearthing buried pain to facilitate healing while co-creating a path towards more secure & satisfying relationships with your self and others.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in relational issues in addition to general issues like anxiety & depression. In our work together, you'll have a greater understanding of your raw spots, where they come from & how you can take care of them moving forward. Even though walking through the discomfort of painful experiences is difficult, it's necessary for healing & wholehearted living. You'll know how these raw spots get poked at in your most important relationships & develop the ability to empathically tend to one another in moments of tension & conflict. As you leave each session you will feel one step closer to self awareness & worth, happy & healthy relationships, allowing you to experience the world as a safe, connected & fulfilling place. I use an integrative approach to therapy w/ models such as Emotionally Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems & Experiential therapies. My style with clients is curious, empathic, understanding & warm w/ a touch of humor.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a wife, mother, daughter, step-daughter, friend and sister. I am a LGBTQ-, non-monogamy-affirming, culturally humble therapist.
