About

Specific areas of clinical focus include:

  • relationships
  • trauma
  • behavioral & emotional concerns
  • depression
  • anxiety and transitions.

My greatest passion is working with couples and individuals who are looking for tools to navigate relationship difficulties, traumas, and major life transitions.

I love helping couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling “not heard” by your partner. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes.

Modalities I use in my practice are: Gottman Method Couple Therapy, EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Attachment theory, Mindfulness, Trauma Focus-CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focus Therapy, etc.

I approach therapy with warmth, and acceptance. My mode of treatment is designed to get you back to living the life you want. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process where I help my clients feel safe, understood, and empowered to explore new ways of being in the world. I will work with you to create positive changes in your life.
