My Approach to Helping
I am passionate about helping those who want to improve their relationships. My approach to therapy is to create a space of safety and acceptance. People come to with a variety of concerns such as: coping with infidelity, struggles with shame around sexual expression, and difficulties at work. My perspective is that that therapy should provide support, challenge, and discovery. I am inspired by the depth of vulnerability shared by those who have decided to seek out therapy.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
My practice is specializes in couples/relationship therapy and helping those who identify as sexual minorities.
I also help those who want to improve their performance at work or who might be thinking about making a career transition.
Many of people seeking therapy feel socially isolated and/or ineffective in their relationships. This often leads to worry, sadness, and lack of motivation. I have found that with adequate education, support, and feedback people can meet their relationship goals and get the love and support they need!
Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
Some who have had tried couples/relationship therapy and not found it helpful. One is that they felt that either the therapist did not provide them enough structure to help them have a productive conversation. Another concern shared by many of my clients is the worry that they will not be accepted by their therapist, psychiatrist, or physician due to diagnostic label or that they were rejected around some aspect of their sexual expression or relationship configuration.
I believe that the foundation of successful therapy experience is to foster an environment that promotes safety and respect. Feedback about the therapy process should be welcome and ongoing.
