You’re probably here right now because something just isn’t right. You may feel overwhelmed, unhappy, frustrated, confused, or just stuck. You might not know exactly what you need, but you may suspect that it’s time for you to make some changes. Reaching out for support is the first step toward reaching your goals and feeling better.


I’m a clinical psychologist and relationship expert with over a decade of experience helping my clients heal old wounds, learn new skills, and grow into happier, healthier men and women. My passion as a therapist is helping my clients build better relationships — with their loved ones and with themselves. I strive to create a safe and caring space for each of my clients, to get to know them as individuals and to provide the warmth, respect, and guidance needed to help them break free from the old patterns that are keeping them stuck. I really enjoy getting to work with both individuals and couples in my therapy practice. I love helping couples recover from old hurts and change problematic communication patterns, and I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) — the most effective form of couples counseling — to get them to a better place. I also love my one-on-one work in individual therapy and I primarily use Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) to help my clients achieve their goals for growth and healing. Some of the things I can help with are…

• Building a better, closer, more intimate relationship with your partner
• Growing self-acceptance, self-compassion, and self-esteem
• Recovering from depression or anxiety
• Learning effective stress management, communication, & assertiveness skills
• Learning how to identify and connect with your emotions
• Healing from painful or traumatic personal experiences
• Exploring who you are & what you want from life
