My Approach to Helping

Imagine feeling more connected in your relationships; on steadier footing around family conflict; gaining flexibility back into your worklife balance; bravely facing past traumas holding you back, and developing a deeper sense of self that helps you feel empowered in the face of uncertainty. It’s understandable to have sincere intentions for change – but struggle to figure it out on your own. Let me show you what it feels like to build a safe relationship where you feel heard, accepted, and understood in a new way that is productive and healing. Let me teach you how to replicate that with others, and most importantly - yourself.

Leading from a place of empathy and authenticity, I am genuinely invested in helping you create the life you want for yourself! I specialize in working with issues related to stress, anxiety, depression, relationships, couples therapy, life transitions, fears of abandonment or rejection, burnout, trauma, family conflict, parenting, communication and ADHD.

I use my education, extensive training, and lived experience to walk alongside you in your efforts toward an improved way of experiencing yourself, others, and the world. Come sit with me. You no longer have to navigate these painful challenges alone. Set up a complimentary phone consultation today! You can reach me directly via phone call or email.

Groups I Work With

    Extensively trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), I use this powerfully effective attachment-based model to promote connection, healing, and growth. I work from a trauma-informed, culturally sensitive, and experiential approach to assist clients in improving relationship dynamics, navigating life’s challenges, managing chronic stress, overcoming past wounds, and developing greater self-awareness, compassion, and empowerment.
