Therapy is one way of gaining self knowledge, forgiveness, and compassion to oneself and others in your life. I work with individuals striving to make new meaning and integrate their thoughts, behaviors and emotions in a new and more coherent story. I consider emotion to be the integrative focus of my work and I provide a safe environment to express feelings as well as tools to learn how to self-soothe. My focus is on deepening self awareness, gaining more self acceptance that promotes authentic ways of being and better relationships.

My work with couples explores existing dynamic in detail. I strive to understand how connection happens and when it is disrupted. By expressing underlying emotions authentically and without fear, couples can experience increased connection in relationships. Enhanced intimacy when partners become a safe heaven for each other repairs defenses such as stonewalling, criticism, contempt, avoidance, hyper vigilant behavior, bickering or sexual boredom.
