ABOUT

My area of expertise is in working with singles and couples through relationship challenges and traumas that may be blocking the way to finding and keeping love alive. I identify triggers that may be getting in the way.  My main therapeutic modalities are Somatic Experience therapy for individuals and Emotionally Focused Couples therapy combined with Imago for couples. My main aim is for people to feel as positive as quickly as possible. The work I do goes deep beneath the core, to identify the history of what is getting in the way so we can clear the path, and create new pathways.

My primary area of expertise is in working with singles looking for love, and young couples just starting out. Also, engaged couples who are uncertain about whether they are with the right one. Basically, people who would like to create a healthy relationship from the start. I know how challenging this can feel when so many seem to do it effortlessly. The truth is, we all have challenges when it comes to marriage. Some of us have a harder time finding love, others have challenges that arise later on. It is my greatest hope to get people into the best place possible to invite a really great relationship and keep it going.

It is so enriching to be able to work with people to create a relationship that they can feel proud of. Laying a great foundation from the beginning paves the way towards being able to overcome common challenges that can plague any of us.
