  • As a therapist, my approach is comforting, supportive, and focused. I utilize a wide range of therapeutic techniques tailored specifically to each client, with an emphasis on empowering my client with coping strategies to use anytime. Together we can keep you motivated in creating the life you desire. I studied with John & Julie Gottman, where I became level 1 Certified in Gottman Method couples counseling. I continue to take additional training to increase my competence as it relates to relationships, trauma, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), anxiety, and mindfulness.
