I am a solution focused, mindfulness oriented, relationship therapist. I am passionate about creating new models for delivery of relationship therapy via web-based technology and reimagining traditional psychotherapy delivery models in ways that remove barriers to access and reduce the stigma associated with emotional / cognitive suffering.
I have particular passion for helping couples in relationship distress. Many of the couples I work with come to therapy feeling lost in conflict cycles which they don't understand and desperately want to change. I understand how much courage it takes to reach out for help and to let another person get inside your relationship, especially when you are feeling hurt, discouraged, angry, or humiliated. If you are searching for a safe place to explore what's not working in your relationship, and support in creating solutions, please contact me.
I have extensive training and experience in couples therapy, including advanced training in both the Gottman Method and Emotion Focused Therapy. I understand that it takes courage to seek help and to let another person get inside your relationship, especially when you are feeling vulnerable and hurt. I have particular experience in supporting couples seeking to heal from infidelity or struggling with addiction and recovery.
In addition to my training and experience as psychotherapist, I have over three decades of experience in both for-profit and non-profit leadership as a coach, executive, business development and marketing strategist, board member, fundraiser, donor, volunteer, as well as pro bono marketing and brand consulting to numerous non-profits. I have served as national business director for a large, national firm and as the executive director of community-based non-profits serving the mentally ill, the homeless, and the dying.
