Psychotherapist for Individuals and Couples - LCSW
Since 2000, I’ve been helping adults, teens, and couples better understand and express their emotions, become more accepting of themselves, find more effective ways to cope with difficulties, and build more secure and satisfying relationships.
I practice Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)–a well-researched and effective method that helps you and your partner become more aware of your not-so-helpful cycles of interacting, improve your ability to understand and express your needs and desires, increase intimacy, and rebuild a sense of safety and trust.
I have extensive experience and affinity with LGBTQ and gender-queer people, and welcome individuals and couples from all walks of life. I have a strong commitment to honoring diversity in all its forms–race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, nationality, religion and economic background–and welcome exploration of the many ways your unique identities impact your life and our work together.
