Learn About My Methods

I am a therapist who meets clients wherever they are. Sometimes deciding to pursue therapy is an uncertain one, so please feel free to call and ask me any questions you have. It can feel vulnerable, reaching out to speak with someone you don't yet know.  Typically, we start out slow and I get to know a little about you and share a little about me. Then, through that discussion, I'm usually able to get an idea of some things you want to work on. We will work together to make a plan to figure out how to work on those goals. I've been trained in CBT, DBT and other evidence based practices and I like for my clients to feel empowered in the work so I share information about how to use the skills we discuss outside session to maximize the benefits of therapy.  In my work with couples, I work hard to make sure both parties feel comfortable and supported while we work through the issues. I am also a Gottman trained couples therapist and utilize their tools in working with couples in their desire to reconnect and work through their conflicts.

Feeling disconnected from your family? Feeling as if you don't belong or that no one understands? It might be time to seek help from a licensed professional. My Family Therapy sessions help patients develop positive attitudes towards their family members and work through conflicts that arise. Family dynamics are complex and ingrained. I help my clients identify how the interactions help us feel stuck in roles and patterns of conflict and then how to learn new ways to connect and resolve issues.


When we are not connecting with our partners, it adds a lot of stress in our lives. I help partners uncover negative patterns and dynamics that get in the way of building the relationships they want. We will work on communication, trust and building connection and intimacy.  In our sessions, you will deepen your understanding and connection with one another and heal conflicts. I help my clients every step of the way and implement various methods to help them reconnect and navigate life's challenges together. Schedule an appointment today and see what I can do for you and your partner.


In individual therapy sessions, we will start with where you are. Everyone comes to therapy for different reasons but ultimately seek out support because something is not working for them in their life. We’ll work to identify what exactly isn't working and I'll help you build some skills to help work towards relief. I will help you “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s stressors. I can help you look inside yourself and understand your motivations for your behaviors and choices and help you choose more positive and healthy choices so you can have the life you want.
