My Approach to Helping

Looking for a couple's therapist is stressful; it's even harder when you're queer or kinky or poly or a sex worker. No one wants to worry about being judged or having to explain basic aspects of your relationship before getting anything done. That's why I specialize in couples from sexual and gender minority groups- our common basis of understanding accelerates the pace at which we can work toward that vision of ideal partnership which is unique to you. Let's tackle that fight that seems to never quite get resolved; mutual support, emotional richness, and stability is waiting on the other side.

I use Emotionally Focused Therapy, both an intuitive and an empirically validated method, to help you clearly communicate emotional needs and to hear those of your partner. You will discover your attachment style and explore how formative experiences shaped your expectations of relationships. I am especially experienced at helping those with a history of trauma or codependency.

If what I've written here makes you feel that you're in the right place, I encourage you to visit my website to learn more about how I work, or to reach out via phone or email. The hardest thing about relationship issues is the fear that things will never change, but by taking the initiative to begin therapy you have changed already.

More Info About My Practice

I am currently working exclusively through video until further notice; when I create a plan to return to in-person sessions, I will update this profile. Due to the constraints of my license, I am only able to work with clients who live in California.

I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation to new clients, to discuss your situation and determine if we would be a good fit. If you would like to schedule a call, please email or call me with a few days and times when you will be available.
