The challenges my clients face span a wide spectrum, encompassing issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, coping with traumatic events, managing OCD, and navigating the complex terrain of grief. I am dedicated to providing a supportive and inclusive space where individuals from all backgrounds can find understanding, healing, and personal growth. Whatever your journey may involve, I am here to help you navigate and overcome the obstacles on your path to well-being.
Are you struggling with feeling inferior; feeling superior; needing to be perfect; feeling you're a burden; or people pleasing? When we grow up in difficult circumstances, we come up with these beliefs/ways of being as a way to help us feel a little more safe. As difficult as it is to hold these beliefs about ourselves, they somehow help us feel better. As we grow up, they create difficulties in our adult relationships.
are you feeling sad more often than usual? feeling stress or anxious due to work, family, the pandemic, or school demands? needing someone to talk to about a traumatic event or losing a loved one? If any of the things listed above relates to you then psychotherapy may help. I admire you for being brave and looking into psychotherapy so give yourself a pat on the back.
At Relationships For Better, our clients are highly motivated to address long-standing patterns in their lives that inhibit them from thriving.

Our therapy team is non-judgemental, compassionate, and skilled in helping individuals and couples work towards healthy relationships with others.

You are not alone and I want to help! Taking the first step in your emotional healing can be the hardest. Life is full of ups and downs; sometimes we need a little extra help to get through it.

Living one’s best life is at the heart of my clinical practice, publishing and research. Whether you struggle with relationships, anxiety, depression, loss, career change, or reconnecting with your purpose in life, I hope to help you cope, unblock barriers and deepen your understanding of yourself. My experience has taught me that your symptoms can become a road map to guide you back toward a sense of wholeness.
Focusing on the needs of people in ENM and poly relationships, I address the complexities of relationships by examining one's own deepest needs desires and longings. Some of my clients are victims of sexual trauma. Some of my clients deal with crippling anxiety, phobias and anger. Some of my clients have secrets and shame that they believe are too much to share with anyone. Some of my clients want to learn how to create harmony, but don't know where to start.
While I work with a wide range of folks, I tend to be the person folks come to when other therapies haven't worked. Relational Somatic Psychotherapy is a deep and powerful therapeutic approach. It works at a very deep and primal level. We combine neuro-biologically informed treatment with mindfulness, movement, traditional talk therapy, drama therapy and more, all in the container of our relationship.
I help individuals in their 20s and 30s who feel lost, stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed. They feel like they have what constitutes a good life, but they are confused about why they are unhappy and feel unfulfilled. I help clients uncover all the ways they are being held back from being happier and more successful in their careers and life. Through my practice, I help people find direction, purpose, strength, happiness, and more in control of their life.
We provide psychotherapy, sex & relationship therapy and coaching to individuals, couples, throuples, family, chosen family members, and more. We support your mental health journey and are especially inclusive of lifestyles such as: BIPOC, polyamory/swinger/nonmonogamy, LGBTQIA, genderfluid, sexual/social minorities, kink, BDSM, sex worker communities, intersectionality and variations in and within sexual expression. We offer Trauma Support.
Sexuality & pleasure are stigmatized, this plays into how we feel about ourselves, our bodies. I specialize in sex, intimacy and relationship issues specifically undoing harmful stories which no longer work for us, which hold us back, harm us. I work to re-educate, and then to empower. I work with clients to signifcantly reduce distress and undo longer standing concerns. Find your truth and build on that!
Does it feel like you and your partner speak different languages? Are you questioning your gender/sexuality? Do you need support because someone in your family just came out as LGBTQ? Are you struggling with your kids? Your parents? Trying to balance it all? Are you going through perimenopause? Any of this can feel overwhelming! Let's work together to help you make sense out of it and feel better about life. Learn to communicate effectively with your partner and repair those ruptures.
Welcome. I foster a safe space to explore areas of self-identity, self-esteem and other existential matters. I support clients experiencing grief, anxiety or depression. I also work with clients looking to heal trauma wounds, kick an addiction, navigate difficult relationships and codependency, or overcome challenging life events and transitions. I enjoy working with first-time dads, providing a space for dads to navigate this significant life transition.

Are you anxious or stressed? A bit of a perfectionist for whom things are not perfect? Are past events getting in the way of what you want to do in the present? I love working with adults and teens dealing with anxiety or panic, trauma (including complex trauma), creative/entertainment industry issues, relationships, and identity issues.
Many of my clients care so deeply about their relationships that they feel burnt out, lonely, resentful, and guilty. Some of the common themes I work best with are: -confidently navigating interpersonal conflicts and misconnections -reducing work stress and bolstering career goals -showing up for and embracing identities such as being highly sensitive and neuro-diverse -Integrating their spiritual selves in sessions as they shape core values
Are you experiencing severe anxiety, overwhelmed by fear, struggling to sleep or confused by your loss of interest in things that used to bring you joy? Are you feeling emotional unstable in an intimate relationship, but stable in all your others? Do you say to yourself, 'something is not right', but can't pinpoint what it is? You may have been targeted by a Narcissist or experienced relational trauma. Together you and I will work together to discover the source and reclaim yourself.
