My Approach to Helping

I am a sex-positive couples therapist. I practice Gottman Method Couples Therapy, which integrates empirical evidence on what makes love last. Based on 40 years of relationship research, the Gottman approach takes the guess-work out of how we can cultivate strong & lasting relationships. When working to increase sexual & emotional intimacy, I practice Imago Relationship Therapy.

I use Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or “Tapping”) to help clients reduce stress, panic and anxiety. Tapping is a confluence of mindfulness, self-compassion, exposure therapy, and accessing the body’s ability to down-regulate our stress response through acupuncture points. Tapping is also highly effective in healing traumatic experiences and desensitizing both context specific & interpersonal triggers. You can learn more about Tapping in this Ted Talk & Research Article.

Folks are getting hurt by the misuse of faith-based power. Adverse Religious Experiences can have long-term impacts on our psyche, emotions and self-worth. I understand the impact religious trauma can have on our day-to-day lives. I can appreciate the importance of finding a safe place to process these wounds and discover internal resources necessary to heal.
