Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Seattle, WA

About My Clients

You're committed to each other and to your relationship, but right now you feel stuck. Perhaps, you don't experience joy in your relationship anymore or you don't feel partnered. You tried to make things better, but Intimacy is hard to come by and you feel defeated. Eventually, you start withdrawing more, feel ashamed and further disconnect from your partner. I know how hard and confusing that can be - especially if you don’t know what to do next.

My Background and Approach

I offer professional insight and practical resources that will inspire you and your partner to keep love and intimacy alive and withstand any setbacks that may show up in the future. As your therapist, I take the time to get to know you and create a safe and warm space for all the challenges to be shared. I will guide you through deep, honest conversations with your partner and offer customized exercises for you to practice at home. My therapy approach draws primarily from Attachment Theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples, The Gottman Method, Family Systems Theory, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, and Feminist Theory.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe a passionate, connected, and joyful relationship is possible and you deserve to be in one. I think the main reason intimate relationships struggle is because we engage in unhealthy learned behaviors that we picked up along the way or developed in response to trauma. When I became pregnant with my first child, I felt overwhelmed thinking of how a healthy, meaningful life and an intimate pleasure-filled relationship could be possible while caring for a newborn. In personal therapy, I learned how to allow space for my emotions, take better care of myself, and build confidence as a parent and a partner. In my work as a couples therapist, I saw that my clients longed for pleasure and connection, but they were at a loss as to how to correct years of misinformation, bad habits, and unhelpful patterns. Too better support my clients, I pursued advanced training in sex therapy and became a PEPS group leader. Message me to learn how I can help your relationship thrive.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
