Psychotherapy is a gift of self-care: a weekly opportunity to be your complete and whole self in a safe and welcoming space with someone who is fiercely advocating for your success. Therapy helps you learn to proactively address conflict, set boundaries, and better understand patterns of behavior.
Self-awareness and self-compassion help you assume positive intent towards yourself and others; consequently, this will broaden your perspective towards others, and empower you to build supportive relationships. Talking with a trained therapist offers opportunities for reflection and clarity. When you are more aware of your thoughts and feelings, you free yourself to manage them more deliberately.


I employ various approaches to couples therapy drawing on techniques from the Gottman Institute, Gestalt Theory, and CBT to help couples improve their communication,  gain better insight into the strengths and areas of growth, and promote strength in the relationship. I thoroughly enjoy working with couples, My rate for a 50 minute couples session is $150.
