About My Clients

Everything is easier when you feel confident that your partner is in your corner. Sharing the weight of your struggles and amplifying life's joys in what makes relationships worth all the work. Our greatest emotional wounds come from our relationships, and our romantic relationships hold the most healing capacity for not only our collective healing but our individual healing as well.

My Background and Approach

I blend the Gottman Method of couples therapy and the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT) to create a holistic form of couples therapy. Gottmen teaches the foundational communication tools that so many of my couples are looking for when the reach out for the support of a therapist. PACT blends contemporary neuroscience and attachment theory to expose the subconscious influences that lead to the conflicts in the first place. I also have lots of experience applying these therapeutic principles to couples that are throwing out the rule book and looking for create the relationships of their dreams. I work with other queer folx, those exploring ethical non-monogmay or kink.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone is doing their best in their relationships and often just doing what they were taught about love and partnership. In couples therapy, we explore hard feelings and hard truths, but I believe that there is always a kind and connecting way of saying what needs to be said. I teach my couples how to kindly speak to each other about difficult topics in a way that fosters the connection we are all so hungry for. I'm a member of the LGBTQ community, and love supporting other queer folx in thriving in their love.
