I'm commited to establishing a safe, collaborative, and warm working relationship with each client or couple. Research tells us that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the number one predictor of therapy success. I also have extensive training in looking beyond symptoms and figuring out the root of clients' struggles. By interweaving past and present , clients gain insight, self-compassion, and access to more ways of interacting with themselves and others. Additionally, I have specialized training in trauma-informed therapy which integrates emotional-regulation based techniques with compassion, empathy, and insight.
