About My Clients

I'm passionate about partnering with successful single women who long to understand why they pull away when they reach for connection. I specialize in demystifying love for yourself and others, so you can transform isolation into togetherness. I'll join you in leaving behind loneliness and embracing intimacy. I'm committed to guiding you beyond choosing between a “might-as-well-settle-for” partner, or lonely Friday nights at home on the sofa.

My Background and Approach

With 15 years of experience, I work from an attachment-based perspective. To put it simply, that means I recognize and help you see the patterns you play out again and again in relationships. I'm here to tell you that you aren't alone. I know what it’s like to feel like you’re drowning in a sea of endless profiles, exhausted as you search for your life partner. We both know the answer isn’t someone giving you tips on using Bumble—if only it was that simple. The feelings that come up when you try to get close hold the clues to the puzzle you’ve been trying to solve. I’ll help you uncover how early relationships influence your present day, lackluster dating life. When you understand the origins, you can begin to free yourself up to create new ways of relating. This will work for you because we will figure out the reasons you are scared to get close, even though you want to so badly. We will heal the early experiences that underlie your fear.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I know what it's like to feel stuck & trapped. You can absolutely overcome what's holding you back. I know from my own healing process that you can embrace intimacy & discover more peace & joy than you ever thought possible. I became a therapist to help others experience the healing I have found. I’m passionate about helping you really embrace hope—not just in a fleeting emotional moment, but deep inside your innermost being. In our work together, I will illuminate your hidden truths, so you can gather your scattered pieces & put yourself back together again; encourage you to re-write the story of your life; & celebrate with you as you begin to truly love yourself. It's my jam to partner with women to transform their pain into hope, meaning, purpose, & fulfillment. I do more than just listen. I offer strategies & suggestions, & also get to the root of your struggles. You will get concrete tools, as well as deep inner healing. I'm also passionate about animal rescue.
