About My Clients

I specialize in providing relational & systemic therapy for individuals, intimate partners, & families who are in search of guidance & support through their life challenges. I have worked with individuals on the autism spectrum for a number of years & have specific experience working with children, partners, & families, as well as LGBTQIA+, trans/NB, & CNM/polyam clients. We will collaborate together & develop strategies that will improve your well-being as we explore your context & your story.

My Background and Approach

Although I take an integrative approach to therapy, Narrative (transforming problem stories into new stories that align with your values, based on meaning-making and reframing) and Contextual (exploring on multigenerational patterns, past hurts, a multidimensional understanding of self and others, and not carrying negative parts of the past with you into the present and future) models are at the core of my work. Particularly when working with partner relationships, I also tend to use Emotionally Focused and Gottman-based techniques, which focus on attachment, turning toward one another, and building shared meaning. My goal is to work with you & your partner(s) to identify challenge areas & work together to improve communication, closeness, and, collaboration. We will discuss emotional needs and build skills for working through conflict & supporting each other through challenges.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My main mission is to help my clients live a happier, less stressful life. I am continuously receiving training and learning skills that will help my clients. I have worked with individuals on the autism spectrum for a number of years & have specific experience working with children, partners, & families, as well as LGBTQIA+, trans/NB, & CNM/polyam clients. In addition to partner & family issues, I also work with individuals who are having difficulties managing stress, anxiety, depression, & other challenges. I believe everyone deserves to live a fulfilling life and no one should have to go through their hardships alone. I am an active member of the LGBQIA+ and polyam/ENM communities. Social justice is a core value of my therapeutic practice and I strive to incorporate critical consciousness and a systemic lens into my work at all times.
