I love my job. Helping partners connect is an amazing and nourishing way to spend my day. I’ve also seen the extraordinary way that couples counseling provides experiences that force couples to look at their identities and core needs as individuals.
I’m trained in highly effective, research-based counseling methods that have been shown to help couples. I draw my understanding of couple dynamics from Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and utilize tools and ideas from Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
My practice is influenced by my experience as an individual psychotherapist and group therapist. For years, I’ve worked with individuals struggling with depression & anxiety, grief & loss, intimacy & sexual concerns, childhood abuse, substance use, chronic illness, caregiver burnout, and aging-related challenges.
I have a master of science degree in Marriage, Family & Child Counseling and I am licensed in the state of California as a Marriage & Family Therapist (MFT). My license number is: MFC50948.
