Couples often seek counseling at a point where they believe their relationships are beyond repair. Communication has broken down, they lack trust, and intimacy no longer exists. Giving yourselves a chance to address this in therapy increases your chance of resolution. Successful, loving relationships are the result of continuous effort. I work with those who desire to learn and receive feedback that directly relates altering behaviors that are damaging to the relationship. When these conditions are met, there is an excellent chance that the relationship will wind up in a stronger place than it’s ever been in before. In working with women it is my firm belief that we all have the capacity to lead fulfilling and meaningful lives, rich with experiences, emotions and relationships. The goal of individual therapy to empower you to be your best self and find passion and joy in life. We’ll address everything you’re feeling, explore new options, and together develop a plan to help you reach your dreams and self-potential.

Approach Description: With over a decade of experience, I've learned that successful psychotherapy begins with a genuine collaborative relationship and connection with my clients - one formed in an environment of trust and safety, but with enough challenge to promote change. My style uses warmth, compassion, intuition, optimism, and collaboration. I work from a person-centered and relational perspective, actively engaging with you to explore your presenting concerns. My approach integrates Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Gottman Method, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Family Systems.
