Individual Counseling and Couples Coaching
Educational. Skills-Building. Collaborative.
Rather than traditional talk therapy or passive listening, I actively engage in sessions, providing an empowering, skills-building approach. This is particularly effective for resolving anxiety, reactivity, insecurities, low self-worth, maladaptive coping methods, relational distress and for divorce and breakup recovery.
Empowering and collaborative. Navigate your life goals, purpose, limiting beliefs, confidence, career, dating, relationships and more.
Specialized guidance to recover from the pain of relationship endings, narcissistic-abuse or divorce. Feel better by healing through the five stages of recovery.
Together, learn science-based relationship and communication skills, aligned with The Gottman Method for more for trusting, deeper connection.

Feel Real Results
"I just wanted to say thank you for your gift. It is wonderful... for the first time in my life, I am seeing and feeling healing!!!!"
More Than Talk Therapy
"Truly grateful for all you have done for me. I can feel such a shift. I have had dozens of therapists throughout my life, but have never felt more valued and understood. Thank you for helping me live my life again."
"I feel so lucky to have found you as my expert guide - helping me through the rough waters of divorce and on the road back to myself. You've made such a difference in such a short time."
"Thank you for all your help over the past several weeks. I actually feel better. You helped me restore my self-worth and pushed my confidence to move forward with my life and career."
"I hope you have a smile knowing how you are really having a healing impact on other people because of what you walked through yourself. Thank you for personally understanding divorce and getting me through the heartache of it."
"I wouldn’t have found my way back to myself without your guidance. I went from daily panic attacks and bad anxiety to now totally able to calm myself."
Delivering the body from functioning as a storage room for suppressed emotions brings a sense of natural love and ease, a spaciousness, that we commonly call happiness.
