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.
