My Approach to Helping

***Currently Accepting Couples Only***
I specialize in couples work. If you feel frustrated and even at times hopeless in your relationship, I can help you connect with yourself and your partner to bring back the feeling of intimacy and trust that allows you to have a relationship that is healthy and fulfilling.
I have done much work with individuals and trauma, and this helps inform my work with couples. You may have experienced childhood trauma, or sexual trauma and are now dealing with PTSD-like symptoms showing up in your relationship. Growing up in systems of abuse and neglect can impact adults in their relationships. You might notice that you struggle to trust your partner, that you prefer to avoid conflict with them, that you get very anxious when they show any sign of disappointment. Your partner is hurt and confused by your responses, and you may or may not have given them the whole story. You might not even understand what's happening yourself. These are all expected trauma responses and we can work together to create a safe and healing space within you as an individual as well as within the couple to help feel love, peace, and joy again. It takes work, but the work that we do together can help you be and feel safe again. There is hope for your situation.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Due to my work with individuals with PTSD andor childhood trauma, I am especially equipped as a Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist to work with couples where one or both has experienced childhood abuse, neglect, or sexual trauma. I utilize the concepts and my training to help couples heal from their trauma and stop the cycle.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

It's impossible for me to know how long the process will take, but we can work through that together- if you're willing to commit to working together. In my experience, longer sessions are more effective with couples work. If you are able to do 2 hour sessions (even bi-weekly), we will get much deeper and accomplish so much more than a 50 min weekly session. It allows the time needed to do the exercises with live input, and gives feedback in real time. It also allows plenty of time for us to practice de-escalation techniques in therapy which are often crucial in order to do the hard work of connecting.
