My Therapy Style

I am a trauma-informed, emotionally focused therapist working with couples, families, and individuals. I specialize in improving relationships with others and most importantly, the relationship we have with ourselves. I want to help couples and families reduce conflict, increase connection, and learn new ways to communicate. My goal is to help my clients repair wounds from the past, step out of old patterns, and improve emotional intelligence. I strive to create a safe and judgment-free space where my clients feel heard and seen.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I became a mental health professional because I really enjoy supporting and getting to know people. I am passionate about attachment theory. I have a genuine interest in human behavior and what goes on beneath the surface.

What are your interests outside of work?

Outside of work, I am a very busy mom of four kids and I am a wife. I enjoy my friends, dogs, and traveling.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

The one thing I do daily to support my mental and emotional well-being is an early morning meditation with stretching.

What book have you read more than once?

One of the books that I have read many more times than once is Hold Me Tight, by Dr. Sue Johnson. This book is the first homework assignment I assign all of my couples and it is the basis for many of my workshops. And I love Dr. Johnson!

Favorite organization/non-profit?

La Leche League International is my favorite nonprofit because I benefited from their support as a new mother and learned how to support new moms effectively at their meetings.

How do you recharge?

I recharge by walking my dogs, exploring new places with my family, and laughing hard with my friends.

Do you have any pets?

I have two dogs that I love dearly, and my 16-year-old poodle is my best pet story because she has beaten many illnesses. All of her doctors are shocked by her good health and ability to outwalk her four-year-old sister. She has beaten cancer, glaucoma, and an illness last year that they wanted to put her to sleep for. She has had an additional 14 months since their last diagnosis and she just keeps surprising everyone! She never gives up!
