Bio

At different points in life we can find ourselves “stuck,” overwhelmed, defeated, or feeling disconnected from ourselves, our partner or others. Social media has added another challenge for us to navigate while seeking connection. Therapy is an opportunity to make positive changes in one’s life and relationships. By gaining an understanding of our needs, motives, and fears we can move out of an “auto-pilot” mode and into an active role in our lives. I work alongside clients to help them develop a more balanced, integrated, and grounded sense of self to be more aware of their choices in order to work to defeat the obstacles creating distress.

With over 16 years of experience working with couples, young adults, and those in mid-life and beyond, I draw from multiple clinical theories with a strong foundation in Attachment Theory and Emotionally Focused therapy for couples. Additionally I include the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, ACT, and mindfulness/guided meditation.

The therapeutic relationship itself is a vital component of the process. I create an environment of warmth, safety, and connection by bringing my genuine self to the space. I encourage clients to explore how they create meaning from their personal experiences, help them give voice to unspoken thoughts, and together we find answers.
