My Approach to Helping

Congratulations! Seeking help takes courage. Because trust is built on safety, I create a safe environment in therapy. We will explore what happens that you don't want, and more importantly, what doesn't happen that you do you want to happen? We will collaborate and focus on empowering you and helping you improve your emotional agility and skills so you can manage your life in a way that satisfies you. Together we will create a map to help you on your journey to your goals. Therapy will help you grow personally and gain increased clarity about yourself and about who you are in relationship with others.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Board Certified Counselor, I have experience with and focus on individual adults and on couples counseling. Individually, I have an approach customized to my clients using an integrated framework of applied counseling psychology and proven therapeutic interventions. With couples I use an integration of knowledge from the Gottman's research and established findings, and the perspective taught at The Couples Institute based on differentiation, attachment and neuroscience. I focus on the growth and development of each partner and of the relationship.

More Info About My Practice

Personally, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I love a good story, in a book or movie. I enjoy learning; the world is so full of interesting places, people and ideas. I raise vegetables and enjoy cooking. Walking several miles a day is my most consistent exercise. I look forward to meeting you!

Currently I provide only teletherapy using HIPAA compliant video sessions. Teletherapy is convenient, saves time, is safe and proven effective.
