I am a licensed psychologist in private practice with deep experience and extensive training in helping individuals and couples repair relationships, build confidence, and transform. I offer a warm, engaged, nonjudgmental healing partnership with you that enables you to make change happen in your life, in your relationships, and in yourself. 

Whether you are anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, lonely, self-critical, stuck in recurring patterns, or experiencing the impacts of trauma or pain, old or new, I work with you to gain a sense of control in your life, to heal, to gain insight, make changes, navigate transitions, feel more integrated and whole, and build confidence to step creatively into your life

I use a variety of evidence-based approaches to psychotherapy, and draw on the science of human attachment, as well as findings from affective neuroscience, to shape an integrated treatment that addresses your unique needs and goals. I do this in a manner that is supportive, authentic and interactive, focused on collaborating with you to create the change you seek. 

I am certified by ICEEFT ( in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT). EFT is an evidenced-based approach that is proven effective in enhancing relationship quality and strengtening bonds in adult romantic relationsihps. We collaborate to resolve stuck patterns of interaction craft new possibilities for connecting. Using an experiential approach, together we create experiences of acceptance, support, and security that transform your relationship into a secure base.
