My Approach to Helping

For many people, a barrier to therapy is the fear of being judged, blamed, or simply not receiving the right help. This is why I make it my aim to help you feel deeply cared for, respected and valued. Because I have been in the field for over a decade, I'm able to determine the right course of treatment and the appropriate modality to use. While I am getting to know you, I build a roadmap in my mind based on your goals and objectives. I organize and prioritize things based on your needs so that you don't have to struggle with knowing where to start. You will always experience me as a compassionate inquirer who is seeking to understand you better in order to help you in a meaningful way. You will see me at times as a coach and cheerleader but never as someone who is analyzing you from a distance. I do my own therapy so that I don't ever forget what it is like to sit in front of another person and share difficult things about my personal life.

More Info About My Practice

I offer both in person and virtual sessions from the privacy of your own home. I use a HIPAA compliant app to process payment so that you only have to enter your information once at the beginning. I make myself available via text, email and phone and return all messages within 24-hours. I offer my clients resources related to parenting, couples seminars, and trauma recovery so that supplementary services can support and enrich our work together.

Groups I Work With

    I have completed Level 3 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and use Gottman method in my therapy Work. I often work with couples who are looking for a way out of the cycle of criticism, defensiveness, stonewalling and contempt. In my work, I help couples build rituals for connection, ways of deepening the friendship bond that leads to greater emotional and physical intimacy. I provide psycho-education on how criticism is a way of protesting emotional hurt and I teach the couple how to turn to their partner in ways that foster trust and connection.
