Couples Therapy



My focus is to help families and couples who are struggling with difficult life transitions, trauma and depression find renewed hope in life. 

I find great joy in creating a unique therapeutic experience that is tailored to you, which is why I integrate different approaches into my practice. I meaningfully aim to provide you with a different perspective on your situation that can help you obtain clarity and peace. I support you by increasing your awareness of the deep fears and strong emotions that may be holding you back and leaving you feeling stuck. 

 My goal is to deeply connect with your personal experience, provide you with a trusting and non-judgmental environment to foster a collaborative process so that together we can create life long changes. I don't just find temporary solutions that may help fix your current situation but rather, I believe in transformation, which is often a process that takes patience and commitment.

Therapy is an investment in your emotional and mental well being, so finding a therapist that makes you feel comfortable is key.
