My work is client-centered.
I am accepting of what comes up and where you are in your process. I use mindfulness, somatic therapy and relational, trauma-informed practices. I work with a wide range of individuals and couples who hold diverse identities in their culture, race, sexual orientations, gender identity and more. My work with each person is different based on what tools and approaches are most effective for you. My clients face a spectrum of mental health challenges including the following:
Death, Grief, Loss
Living in These Complicated Times
Big Life Transitions & Decisions
Non-traditional choices and lifestyles
Challenges of being a Caregiver or Helping Professional
Compassion Fatigue & Vicarious Trauma
Difficult Childhoods & Attachments
Pregnancy, Postpartum, New Parenthood

How I support Couples Work.
Beyond the challenges above, couples therapy can create a healthy, flourishing relationship. The dynamic that people create in a relationship is at the heart of couples counseling. In couples work, we bring attention to the dynamic between two people, looking at how each person plays a part. Therapy for couples focuses on the some of the following areas:
Navigating similarities and differences
Utilizing the strengths of the relationship
Understanding patterns & dynamics
How to nourish your partner & allow yourself to be nourished.
Understanding your own reactions to your partner and how to respond better.
How to repair conflicts
Navigating a growing family
How to interrupt habitual conflict/fighting
