Passionate about helping others.
I specialize in helping clients navigate the many relationships in their lives. I offer a variety of approaches to therapy that help clients get where they want to be. I also work collaboratively with clients to make sure their needs are getting met and we are on track towards their goals.
In working with couples, individuals, and families, my approach to therapy is based in attachment theory and integrative methods, the foundation of which includes feeling safe and heard in the therapy room.
This means taking the time to understand you and how we can work together to support your goals. I deeply value people’s individuality and utilize an approach that reflects that value. Infusing this integrative modality with creativity, humor, and care is at the heart of my practice.
My practice is influenced by current research and training in: Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Mindfulness, Communication Skills Training, CBT, EMDR, and Parenting Skills, among other theories and modalities.
