Individual therapy

I believe that the challenges we face in our lives are invitations for us to grow. I offer depth-oriented psychotherapy sessions for individuals from one to three times per week; in our sessions, I will create a safe environment so you can actively engage in your own natural process of self-discovery and evolution.


My approach is warm, genuine, and inclusive, and my practice is rooted in a trauma-informed, psychodynamic approach to healing, which emphasizes the importance of the present-moment relationship between the two of us, as well as ways in which your past may influence your present experience. This focus on our relationship can be transformative, as patterns of experience you might struggle with in your other relationships naturally emerge in the safety of the therapy room, and we have a chance to together explore, understand, and ultimately empower you to shift what isn't working for you. 

Together we might explore hard-to-change life patterns and choices, ways in which you protect yourself and avoid challenging experiences, the impact of your important relationships, as well as your fears, dreams, wishes, and fantasies – in order to help you embody your truest and most comfortable self. 


therapy for couples and partnerships

I honor diversity and welcome partnerships of all kinds, at all stages of relationship, including non-traditional partnerships, friendships in need of tending, strained sibling relationships, parent-child relationships, etc. As a couples therapist I am poly-friendly, trauma-informed, LGBTQ allied, and kink-aware.  

I know it takes effort for you and your partner to get to therapy. I'm here to help you navigate whatever has brought you in. I work in a down to earth, collaborative manner to create an emotionally safe environment for both of you so that you can increase your self-understanding and empathy for your loved one and talk about what matters. I commonly work with communication problems, loss of connection, bridging differences, managing strong feelings, sexuality issues and issues of responsibility. 

To be in relationship is a gift.  It can also be a confusing array of conscious and unconscious feelings, hopes, expectations and conflicting needs. Disappointment, isolation, resentment and discouraging fights often bring couples into therapy. I endeavor to offer a space that will allow you to strengthen your ability to communicate and repair dynamics and patterns between the two of you that have become entrenched and hurtful.

Entering a relationship or strengthening a commitment can be simultaneously an exciting, joyful yet evocative and unsettling experience. I offer premarital or commitment therapy for couples entering marriage or long term relationships of all shapes and varieties. In these sessions I help partners to discuss important topics with each other, such as their commitment and expectations, finances, in-laws, intimacy and conflict resolution. Studies have shown that couples who complete some form of premarital or commitment counseling have significantly increased marital  and long term relationship satisfaction compared to those who do not.
