As a therapist, I use a mindfulness-based approach and have an open, nonjudgmental stance
when working with clients. Informed by Buddhist and existential thought, I think that therapy helps us manage anxiety, create meaning, and develop better ways to connect—leading to greater self-
awareness and a richer, more authentic life. I aim to collaborate with my clients to help them realize the change needed in their lives to get unstuck and live authentically.
When working with couples, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy, Relational Life Therapy and Gottman Method to help couples heal from old wounds, increase intimacy, and improve communication. I offer Brainspotting for trauma, Discernment Counseling for couples on the brink and, Uncoupling therapy to couples separating to help establish a cooperative coparenting relationship and more.
I received my MA in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota and BA in English Literature and Women’s Studies from UCLA.
