About My Clients

Staying connected to your partner can be tough - even when there’s a lot of love in your relationship. 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.

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.
