“We get better in connection” is one of the mantras I live by. And what better way to make that happen than in therapy?

ACT was my first love and the modality that spoke to me the most when I first started. What I really like about it is the flexibility it gives me and my clients while, at the same time, being super comprehensive. ACT assumes that to get stuck is the most human thing to do - everyone gets stuck at some point in their lives. Difficult feelings and thoughts are part of the human experience, and how we interact with them is crucial and can mean the difference between suffering and doing well.
The Gottman Method was the first couples modality I was trained in (Level I + II, as well as Affair Recovery and Addiction Recovery). My clients and I love it for its very approachable framework, and I still use it often.
I have extensive training in PACT (was trained in Level I + II) and am part of an ongoing case consultation group to further hone my skills and craft. PACT is very comprehensive and pays a lot of attention to attachment styles, emotional regulation, and brain science. Given that I've been trained in PACT, Gottman, and EFT, I methodically use the best parts of each modality based on what my couples are bringing and am struggling with.
