My clients describe me as non-judgmental, supportive and insightful. In addition to talk therapy, I work experientially, because growth involves experimenting, trying, and doing rather than only thinking, understanding, and planning. I also work holistically, because working with mind, body, and spirit engages more internal resources and, thus, produces deeper and more lasting change.
I specialize in helping couples who have lost their sense of connection and are struggling to communicate, either in general or about a particular issue such as intimacy, finances, family, lifestyle, or parenting.
I am both a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified Integral Coach.
