My Approach to Helping

Are you feeling distant from your partner? Have you lost that 'loving feeling" you once had?

I can help you reconnect and rebuild a healthy, satisfying relationship with your loved one. It is possible to have a relationship you look forward to going home to once again.

To live a successful and meaningful life, we must nourish relationships that make us feel happier, healthier, and more effective in all areas of our life. We need connections with loving, trusting, and dependable people who are willing to be vulnerable. I can help you and your partner create a supportive and loving relationship. Call or email me today to schedule an appointment!

Mindful Mom's Group

Do you find yourself taking care of others, even at the expense of your own personal fulfillment? Are you ready to find new ways to make meaningful changes in your life? You are not alone. Many women, especially mothers, easily take on caretaking roles within their families, at work, and with friends but find it more challenging setting healthy boundaries and tuning in to their own needs. This 6 week group will help you connect with other moms in a safe and nurturing place where you can explore your feelings, thoughts, and interactions with the goal of deepening connections with others as well as yourself.

My Therapy Focus

I specialize in working with couples who feel distant from their partner, struggle to communicate effectively, and want to feel heard and appreciated. I am here to support you in rebuilding trust, improving communication about challenging topics (finances, sex, household tasks, & parenting), and increasing intimacy.

I support parents of children and teens who are feeling stuck or overwhelmed create more joy and ease in their families as well as creating teamwork with their partners.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

My own journey in counseling led me to become a therapist. I pursued counseling to help get relief during periods of intense trauma and loss, both as a child and an as an adult. When I first sought counseling, I didn't know what to expect. I just knew I needed support and relief from the overwhelming emotions I was feeling. The therapist walked the journey with me- she didn't try to change what I was experiencing but sought to understand, help normalize my experience, and gave me the tools to regulate my nervous system. She helped me find the wisdom within myself. I felt heard, seen, and accepted for who I was- my whole self. I developed more compassion and gentleness for myself as a human being on this life journey. I felt more empowered to make decisions, to assert myself, and to be in a relationship with others.
