Providing the support you deserve
I am particularly passionate about working with couples and acting as the translator to help partners speak the same language and increase connection. I believe that there is nothing more meaningful than our connections and relationships with others.
At my core, I believe in each individual’s capacity for growth and empowerment and am dedicated to developing a collaborative environment of trust and respect. I strive to help individuals discover understanding, clarity, and hope while encouraging an honest feedback loop in the therapeutic relationship. Using everything from lighthearted humor to challenging belief systems, I promise to meet you wherever you are in your journey.
Whether you’re dating and deciding next steps in the relationship or you’ve been married for 10+ years and looking to reconnect, I can help you improve communication, identify unhealthy patterns and replace them with healthy ones, and solidify a “we” approach in your relationship.
As a Level III Certified Gottman Professional, I use the Gottman Method when working with couples. This method utilizes assessment and customized interventions to help couples focus on strengthening three main areas of their relationship: friendship, conflict management, and shared meaning.

With individuals, I utilize a unique blend of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Strength-Based Therapy.
