My Approach to Helping

We all have struggled at stages in our lives. We can move past the most difficult ones to find new joy and vitality when working with a trained therapist or parent coach. Systemic focused therapy includes processing what beliefs you have formed about yourself and deciding which ones to keep. Then, integrating new ways of thinking into your life today. I utilize systemic family therapy models including Bowen that integrate how we learned to see the world and the impact that has on how we are in relationship with others today. Trained in EMDR, Gottman for couples and certified in a CBT parenting model that incorporates mindfulness, I also pull from these evidence-based treatments in working with clients.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

As a former journalist, one the hardest aspects was hearing people struggling without being able to step in and offer assistance. I love this part of being a therapist, I get the amazing privilege to walk alongside you in your journey and offer different paths and ways of looking at challenges. I enjoy listening to client's struggles with compassion and understanding. This is the recipe for change, a strong therapeutic relationship. I thoroughly enjoy this part of my work.

Groups I Work With

    I greatly enjoy working with parents and helping them discover the joy and fulfillment in working alongside their children to create a harmonious home. As a certified parenting coach, I travel the country teaching parenting classes and love working with all different types of families.
    Finding a good fit for a couple's therapist can be challenging. Research shows the most effective therapy includes a strong therapeutic relationship. I offer a free 15 minute consultation for all couples to identify goals and challenges and make sure there is a good fit. I utilize research-based Gottman therapy for couples focusing on strengths and connection.

    For individual therapy, many of my clients happen to be folks who identify as female and struggle in our culture where this part of themselves is often challenged.
