About My Clients

I use Emotionally Focused Therapy to help couples who love one another deeply, yet feel like they are missing each other. My approach is nurturing, compassionate, intuitive, and grounded in evidence-based practice. I have a particular interest in helping parents of young children and pregnant and postpartum couples navigate the challenges that come with life with kids. I’m also a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor and I’m passionate about helping folks find peace with food and their bodies!

My Background and Approach

After teaching high school for several years, I found myself reevaluating my priorities while home with my young children in the early days of the pandemic. Through becoming a therapist, I found a career that keeps the parts of teaching that I loved best - connecting with people and adding value to families' lives - while giving me the balance I was craving. My therapeutic approach is warm, welcoming, LGBTQIA-affirming, accepting of all bodies, anti-diet, and kink-aware. Some of my particular specialties include: Couples who love each other, but feel disconnected and want to get back to feeling seen, understood and valued by their partner; Pre-marital & Pre-baby Couples, who want support in getting off to the right start or preparing their relationship to withstand the transition to parenthood; Parents who are struggling with how their relationship has changed after having kids; Pregnant and postpartum moms who want to find peace with their changing lives and bodies.
