My Approach to Helping

My goal is to help people get “unstuck” from unhelpful patterns in their lives and relationships. To do this, I can help you better understand yourself and your loved ones, increase empathy and connection, and support you in changing behaviors that are not working for you. Blaming and judgment keep us stuck, but we can often find new ways of moving forward through better understanding one another. It is extremely important to me to create a therapeutic environment that is warm, empowering, and safe.

I believe relationships matter. Research shows that relationship distress causes problems in your health, mental health, work, children - it can even shorten your life. On the other hand, healthy relationships protect you from stress and help you thrive. Unfortunately, too many people don’t have access to effective help for their relationships, or wait too long to seek help.

Because I believe everyone deserves healthy relationships, I believe in using relationship therapy that works. I practice evidence-based therapy, which means I use therapeutic practices that have been studied and supported by empirical research studies. My clients should feel confident that the interventions I provide have been shown to be effective.

Last but certainly not least, I practice from an affirming, feminist, and anti-racist philosophy. This means that I unconditionally accept and value my clients’ gender, sexual, racial, cultural, and other identities. My practice takes into account each person’s unique experiences within contexts of social and systemic oppression, and the impact of these forces on your interpersonal relationships.
