Can I please tell you how much I Love working with couples?! It is such rewarding work. I love when I get to see a couple reconnect after a long stretch of feeling so disconnected. I enjoy helping couples feel heard and put words to what they have been having trouble expressing. I Live for moments where couples can increase their sexual intimacy and feel more deeply connected than they had been before. I especially feel privileged when couples entrust me with helping them decide if they should end the relationship. Couples work is a sacred work. It is my heart beat. I got you. 

Here's How I Can Help

Couples Therapist

You’re READY! You both have done or are currently in individual therapy and you’re ready to level up and take the next part of your therapy journey TOGETHER!


Ready to go Deep?

Maybe you have dipped your toe, you’re wading at the waist, or you jumped all the way in. Because both of you have done some of the work to understand yourself better and have added some therapy jargon to your vocabulary, we get to get straight to work on the relationship.


Let’s take everything you have learned and really get you both feeling connected to one another again.

Premarital Counseling

We’re fine! Why do we need premarital counseling?


Marriage is no picnic! Ok, sometimes it is...but it can often be incredibly trying. I often get couples in my office when they have reached their breaking point and are headed toward divorce. Premarital counseling can give you the tools you need to make your marriage a success!


I get to know you! That said, if you and your partner want to return in the future for marriage counseling, I will already have a deep understanding of who you are as a couple. You won't feel like you have to "start over" with your story. 


Last but not least, this will be FUN! I promise! So many couples tell me how much they enjoy coming and look forward to their next session!

Sound Familiar?

Ugh, we keep fighting about the SAME thing over and over and over again. It's the same pattern. Fighting, shouting, screaming, crying, and someone is sleeping on the couch. We need to get out of this cycle and we just can't seem to do it. I'm scared. I'm scared it's over. This isn't the person I fell in love with. I feel so defeated.


Can we get back to where we were?

  totally  get  it! 

I promise, hope is not lost. I have seen couples get into challenging pattern in their relationship and sometimes it just takes a little adjusting for you two to learn a "new dance." I can help you to learn how to fight clean and fight fair. I can also help you and your partner communicate your wants and needs to one another and get them met!


Imagine a relationship in which you feel heard. You're able to talk to one another without it turning into a fight. Imagine feeling so connected that your sex life is not just good, it's great! Imagine feeling the love you once had for your partner. I'm telling you...its Possible!

Therapist     Partner 

Are you in relationship with a therapist?

Are you a therapist in relationship with someone who isn’t a therapist?

Hard huh?

In  a  relationship  with  a  therapist? You may get a partner who is pretty self-aware, empathetic, and super good at knowing how to handle conflict. But MAN, it is hard navigating contentious moments when they seem to keep the therapist hat ON. Let me take this moment to apologize on behalf of all of us therapists, we’re sorry!


You’re  a  therapist  in  relationship  with  someone  who  isn’t? You get a partner whose personality compliments and balances yours and helps you see the world in a way you might not otherwise have known. But MAN, when you’re navigating a contentious moment and you just want them to understand how their attachment wounds are influencing their triggers in that moment so you can reach a point of reconciliation, but you mentioning this leads to the phrase


Stop Therapizing me!


This dynamic can be difficult to navigate. I get it.


Let me help you and your partner feel as though the scales are Balanced so you can both feel heard, understood, and validated.
