My Approach to Helping

Are you struggling in a relationship? Do you feel distressed, alone or misunderstood? Are experiences from your past preventing you from having a more fulfilling life. Change is possible! I believe that inherent in each of us, there is internal strength, wisdom and the capacity for growth. Through a safe and trusting relationship, I'm here to help you heal, learn and connect. My approach is warm, non-judgmental and collaborative. I work in a holistic way that combines empathy and exploration to help you feel heard and foster self-awareness with more direct approaches to help you recognize unhealthy patterns, alleviate symptoms and make lasting changes.

More Info About My Practice

I specialize in helping couples who are struggling in their relationship to find joy, trust and reconnection again. I also love working with individuals to overcome depression, anxiety, PTSD and relationship issues. My approach is compassionate yet practical, and is informed by Attachment Theory, Trauma Informed Therapies, Cognitive Based Therapies and the latest in Neuroscience.

Please contact me for a free 20 minutes phone or video consultation to see if we might be a good fit or to schedule an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you and to our possible work together.
