My passion is working with couples longing to restore, repair, or deepen connection with one another. I have received advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy – an empirically-validated, attachment-based approach to family and couples’ therapy that seeks to repair and strengthen the bonds of intimacy and connection and promote emotional safety, trust, and openness.
The individual circumstances that lead to one’s decision to pursue therapy are diverse and unique. Such seasons of life can be painful, disorienting, and lonely. I work with individuals on a range of issues, including life transitions, identity & spirituality questions, grief & loss, anxiety, and depression. Together, we’ll explore your unique experiences and create a safe environment to face life’s current challenges.
“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”

Planning for a lifetime together can be as stressful as it is joyful and exciting, as couples face the challenges of joining two futures together. When working with couples who are preparing for marriage, I often employ an approach similar to couples and family therapy. I am also certified in PREPARE/ENRICH, which helps couples to identify areas of strength in their relationship as well as areas of potential growth.
