My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I provide a nonjudgmental and safe therapeutic environment for my clients and I value client-therapist alliance above anything else. I have a direct yet empathetic therapy style, collaborating with my clients to help achieve their goals. I love working with couples who struggle with communication and connection, who want to learn how to reconnect or "fight better". I also love empowering partners to find their voice and express their needs in a relationship.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Taking the step to find a therapist is already a huge step. It can be anxiety provoking just to admit it may help to talk to someone about something so personal to you. I always want clients to know that you are the expert of your own life. We will work together to help you reach your goals and become the best version of yourself individually or as a couple.
Choosing to reach out to a therapist is the bravest thing you can do. It does not make you weak - it is you choosing to be vulnerable and brave with the parts of you that feel most raw. I am very aware of the strength it takes to move forward when every part of you wants to hide those parts away from everyone. We will gently process those parts in a way that feels good to you.
