I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 8 years of experience providing therapy to individuals, couples, and families. I specialize in relationships and trauma, and I have helped many people overcome challenges in their relationships, heal from past trauma, and build a better life for themselves.

I am a warm and compassionate therapist who creates a safe and supportive space for my clients to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. I use a variety of techniques, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, EMDR, and attachment-based therapy, to help my clients achieve their goals.

I am committed to providing my clients with the highest quality of care. I am always learning and growing as a therapist, and I am committed to providing my clients with the most effective treatment possible.

If you are struggling in your relationships or are dealing with the effects of past trauma, I would be honored to help you. Please contact me to schedule a consultation.

Here are some of the specific areas that I can help with:

  • Relationship problems: I can help couples improve their communication, resolve conflict, and build a stronger foundation for their relationship. I can also help individuals who are struggling with singlehood, dating, or divorce.
  • Trauma: I can help people who have experienced trauma, such as abuse, neglect, or violence, to heal from their past and build a better future. I can also help people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, or other mental health problems that are related to trauma.
  • Other issues: I can also help people with a variety of other issues, such as stress, grief, and self-esteem.

Therapy Goals

My main goal is to get to know you. Therapy can help to demystify things and integrate your mind and body. I like to work with clients to develop practical skills. Skills that can be used to manage overwhelming feelings and to control behaviors that often cause interpersonal issues. I believe our mind develops a rolling narrative of life, a version that we actively accept. It aligns so much with how we feel, that we rarely challenge it. We get stuck when we cannot look at life with a subjective lens.

Sessions with me include psychodynamic approach. I pull from multiple different therapies depending on what you need. I use tools in session to help provoke cognitive shifts such as role plays, worksheets and experiments. So far, the most profound thing I have learned as a licensed therapist is: Therapy is a transient process where clients simply come in, get help and move on. 




Working with Trauma

I use a narrative exposure, EMDR and CBIT to support clients with trauma histories. Along with somatic theory my approach is especially recommended for individuals who struggle with complex, historical or multiple traumas. During this structured theoretical approach we walk back through your most intense memories with the goal of as minimal arousal as possible. You do not have to relive the feelings of your experience to heal. With narrative exposure I am looking to help you identify your strengths.

Trauma histories in relationships can complicate things. Despite the difficulty relationships with others pose, they are possible and highly recommended! narrative exposure and CBIT can help couples identify patterns in their relationship. I also use PACT theories and interventions to encourage emotion regulation and reduce reactivity. Don't let overwhelming feelings get in the way of having a relationship.


Working with Couples/Partners

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I believe it is my duty to treat and support couples and families. I use PACT theory and interventions as a base with couples and families. In addition, I use attachment theory, psychodynamic and CBIT approaches. Sessions are highly experiential and somatic. I prefer to see couples and families in person so we can use the room and spacing to create experiences. I also provide this service via tele-health.
