My approach to therapy blends evidenced-based practices with warmth, acceptance and humor. I believe our experiences and relationships help shape how we think, act, and feel, and yet we have the incredible capacity to create new and lasting patterns for our lives. It is from this hopeful place that I approach every client as I listen to his or her story and desires for the future. I have experience in assisting couples to go below the surface of conflict and find healing and intimacy. In addition to working with couples and families, I am committed to helping individuals shed the lingering effects of abuse, loss, and other traumas. I work with clients at their pace and help them develop clear steps to achieve their goals.
In addition to practicing therapy, I am a mental health consultant for Teach For America and an adjunct professor and Advisory Board member for a local university's graduate therapy program. I am EMDR trained, a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and Delta Kappa International Marriage and Family Therapy Honor Society. I welcome and value individuals of all backgrounds, groups and cultures.
