Personal Bio

I work with individuals, couples, and families from an integrative psychodynamic approach which explores how life experiences and relationships are viewed and valued, and why clients may hold these views and values. “Unpacking” patterns that may be present in thoughts, beliefs, and emotions (why do we think, believe, and/or feel how we do?) allows the possibility to revise the script of an individual’s, couple’s, or family’s life to one that is more beneficial and healthful. Often this includes considering intergenerational / family tradition factors and reframing thoughts and experiences in ways to empower each individual to maximize potential, and in turn, for couples and families to mindfully shed unproductive patterns so that they can progress towards satisfaction and happiness. I embrace and facilitate functioning in “non-traditional” configurations including Blended families, LGBTQ individuals/ relationships, and the polyamory community.

While life may present its challenges, I can assist clients in viewing and navigating experiences and events with new insight, confidence, and competence.
