More Info
  • Most of my clients seek me out because they are wanting to engage in a process that is more reflective of their values and interests, and a traditional talk-therapist doesn’t appeal to them. You will likely be someone with an interest in greater understanding, self-development, spirituality, and have been on a journey of self-improvement for some time but feel like you need some new skills and resources to take your growth to the next stage. You might be wanting to improve your ability to communicate your emotions and desires within your relationship with family, a partner, be a more affective parent, or make advances in your career that you feel your inhibiting. As an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist, my aim is to provide safe and sound therapeutic experiences for my clients to deepen self-awareness and strengthen their inner power. I am a firm believer of the innate healing power of the body and I help clients tap into this process through use of somatic and expressive-art therapies. As a Somatic Psychotherapist, I use both traditional talk-therapy and body-oriented approaches to deepen the healing process and create lasting changes that are embodied — not just analyzed and later forgotten.

    When working with couples, my approach is to support healthy and mature communication, intimacy, and tolerance within the relationship for closeness and distance. I work from an attachment-based perspective which means that we are considering how our ability to create healthy bonds with people is affected from our early relationships. Often, this means that we are addressing attachment traumas and wounds from the past while working to mend our current relationships. We are all wounded within the context of a relationship, and at the same time, we must learn to heal within relationships as well. Our relationships, intimate or otherwise, are the foundation of our experiences and our ability to feel safe, secure and seen in these relationships is vital to our wellbeing. I help both individual clients (ages 12+) and my couples clients to help heal and feel more alive in their lives.
