I love helping clients harness their own strengths, and continue to be the author of their life story. I am here to listen and provide a safe space to process what you are going though or have experienced, and also to assist you in developing some new ways to move forward.

Warm, direct, and knowledgeable. I'll partner with you to find creative ways to help get your goals met. Together we can determine if I might be a good fit for your therapy needs and style that you're looking for.

Personally, I enjoy getting outside with my komondor "mop dog", Barkley. I am continuing to learn Spanish, with the goal of being bilingual. Social justice and valuing different cultures are important to me. My go-to coping/relaxation activities include: music, dance, cooking, reading, and time at the beach or planning a traveling adventure.

Therapy Approach

I tailor my therapy approach to match each client/couple/family that I work with and your needs/goals. Current research and best practices guide my work. I often draw from the following therapy styles/theories:

  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)

  • Family Systems

  • Strengths-based

  • Narrative

  • Gottman Couples Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) [for couples]

  • and others...
