We Speak Relationship.

We all face challenges in our lives that can benefit from the guidance of a compassionate therapist. These times can be an opportunity to expand our thinking and heal our past. I invite you to begin a better way to connect with yourself, your partner and family to improve the quality of your life. When life's transitions and circumstances are addressed in therapy, my client's feel better equipped to make change. I provide the tools and interventions that are specific to your needs and draw from an integrative approach for healing of the self and in context of relationship. When we heal and understand ourselves, we can better interact in the world.

I tailor my approach to best suit my clients' needs with a collaborative approach, whether I am doing couples counseling, sex therapy or trauma work with individuals.

Throughout my education, licensure, and personal growth, my primarily focus has been couples counseling, sex therapy, family therapy and individuals with relationship issues. I have worked with partners in both monogamous and non-monogamous partnerships, LGBTQ+ individuals and partners, kids, their parents, divorce, blended families, partner’s with depression or anxiety, but always through the lens of attachment-based modalities, such as IMAGO and Emotionally Focused Therapy. I draw tools from Gottman methods and Non-Violent Communication and Mindfulness-based CBT. And am always deepening my knowledge within the framework of relationships, such as the current efforts towards a sex therapy certification. With a dual-masters degree that included Art Therapy, my thesis was to create empathy between a couple using a directive to address Family of Origin issues and attachment style. I am also trained in EMDR for healing trauma and faulty beliefs and relational blocks. I am certified in sex therapy from California Institute of Integral Studies. I work with individuals and partners and am LGBTQ, polyamory, kink/BDSM aware and accepting and trauma informed.
