Ready for greater connection
in your life and relationships?

how can i support you?

I love helping people live more rewarding lives, and develop greater connection, trust and intimacy in their relationships.

Couples

Did you know the average distressed couple waits six years before trying counseling? You don't need to wait that long! Whether you're struggling with communication, trust, intimacy, recent events, or other concerns, there is hope. Stop repeating old patterns and begin a new chapter in your relationship. I can help you enhance connection, fuel change, and enliven your lives together. Let's get started!

Individuals

Whatever you're seeking, you're not alone. Many situations and experiences can stretch our abilities to cope. Perhaps you're feeling sad, anxious, or stuck. Maybe you're struggling with relationships or how to build connection with others.
You're in the right place! Together, let's explore what's important to you, where you want to go, and paths to get you there.

Thanks for stopping by. I welcome couples and adults of all backgrounds, genders, and orientations at my office in Seattle's Green Lake / Roosevelt neighborhood.

I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate and in the process of becoming certified as an Emotionally Focused Therapist (EFT). My calm, accepting, culturally-sensitive approach makes it easy to discuss your situation and get to the heart of what matters.

The number one thing I hear from couples at my practice is: "We need help communicating."

Let's face facts: the intimate relationships we have as adults can be hard. Too often, we get stuck in destructive cycles of hurt and blame, defense and grievance, sometimes pulling away and sometimes pursuing our partners. And they can also provide us with the connection, care, love, and healing to be ourselves.

"The chains of marriage are so heavy that it takes two to carry them; sometimes three." - Alexandre Dumas

I assist couples of all genders and orientations cultivate more fulfilling relationships. Specially trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), I can help you fuel change through improved connection and communication.
