Personal Experience & Biography

I believe in everyone’s inherent ability to create positive change. Utilizing a compassionate and strengths-based approach to the therapeutic process, I employ a variety of techniques to help clients achieve their internal and relational goals. I incorporate systemic and attachment-based models to increase self-awareness as clients work toward growth and understanding for issues including difficult life transitions, personal insecurities, anxiety, depression, trauma, marital distress, and infidelity. I create a safe, nonjudgmental therapeutic space through empathy, patience, and curiosity, while providing each individual and couple concrete strategies and clear feedback that becomes the foundation for lasting change.

I am a trauma-informed therapist trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and I draw from attachment theory and IFS (Internal Family Systems) to support individuals and couples as they work towards healing. In addition to my hourly clients, I run individual and couple EMDR Intensives to help people experience relief more quickly than is possible in traditional weekly therapy. In the long run, Intensives are more cost-effective and efficient because therapy is concentrated and highly focused. Please click here for more information on EMDR Intensives.

In addition, I am trained in the SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions) protocol, which has created the foundation for my work with anxiety. I work with individuals experiencing anxiety, as well supporting couples in improving communication, conflict management, and understanding when one member is experiencing anxiety. In my work with couples, I also integrate the Gottman Method and EFT. With these models at my core, I am able to meet each client where they are at and tailor a treatment plan that will meet their unique needs.
