Please note: In order to support a healthy community I am currently holding all therapy sessions online. I will offer in-office sessions as soon as it is absolutely safe to do so according to county, state, and CDC guidelines.
I’m a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with over 14 years of clinical experience. My goal as a therapist is to help individuals and couples find ways to live life more fully, communicate more effectively, and feel better about themselves and their relationships.
I want to help you become more self-aware, live more in the present, and assume more responsibility for taking care of yourself. My therapeutic style is thoughtful, active and non-judgmental.
What does therapy look like? The therapy process is highly individual. What works for one person might not work for another. I incorporate a variety of therapeutic modalities depending on what works best for you. Methods I use include traditional talk therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), somatic techniques, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and mindfulness approaches. My work is informed by current research in the areas of neuroscience, trauma and the mind-body connection.
The duration of the therapeutic process ranges from short-term, goal-oriented work to longer-term depth work focused on exploration and discovery. Most clients find they are helped by meeting once per week while others choose to meet more frequently. It is usually best for us to discuss your therapeutic goals to decide together what is best for you. Therapy sessions are generally 50 minutes long. EMDR sessions start at 75 minutes.
I am LGBT affirmative and strive towards cultural competence. I am sex-positive and have experience working with, and am affirmative of, people in alternative relationships including polyamorous and open-relationships as well as those who engage in consensual kink.
