About My Clients

*Currently only accepting couples and families.* I understand that our relationships can be both some of the most valuable and challenging aspects of our lives. I welcome all formations of relationships including romantic relationships (monogamous, open, polyamorous) and familial relationships (siblings, parent/child, etc.). My aim is to help identify and shift dynamics which are causing stress in relationships as well as recognize the strengths and connections which sustain them.

My Background and Approach

With a background in philosophy and massage therapy, I bring both an open, thoughtful mind and an intuitive, body-based grounding awareness. I’m also very curious, pragmatic, and creative. I deeply acknowledge the serious impact of challenging situations, while also at times bringing humor and lightness into one's perspective. I enjoy working mindfully to explore communication and relationship patterns, slowing down at points of tension or avoidance, and expanding and celebrating moments of connection and understanding. This can include deepening understanding of the ways we are explicitly communicating as well as bringing awareness to some of the more implicit messages we are sending and receiving.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in the power of looking inward and finding ways to feel “at home” in your body as well as feeling “at home” in the world. My relationships with family, friends, and spouse serve as a primary source of inspiration for me to continually learn and grow. From personal experience, I know how relationships can be both deeply challenging and incredibly rewarding. If we can find the patience, courage and support to stay present, I believe these challenges bring an invitation to better understand what's happening for us, ultimately leading to greater intimacy and connection with ourselves and others. I also believe that we each possess a great deal of wisdom that offers guidance in simple (though not necessarily easy) ways for us to embody. Therapy can offer time and space to be heard, seen, and supported exactly as you are, so that you may find a way to move towards where you would like to go.
