Personal Information and Therapy Style
“My own story has taught me that pain is unavoidable, at times paralyzing. I have also learned that pain is a catalyst, awakening us to the areas of our lives that need care and attention. As an attachment-based therapist, I partner with individuals, couples, and families to safely navigate through their pain, hardship, and/or uncertainty, helping them access personal strength and hope along the way. It is with humility, respect, and compassion that I engage each person’s story. I view the process of therapy as sacred—we will work together toward healing and wholeness in your life and your relationships.”
Her approach is tailored to individuals, couples, or families based on their unique needs. She specializes in providing evidence-based therapy that is effective and empowering, including Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), attachment, affective neuroscience, and contemporary relational theories.
She also draws from the ongoing process of transformation in gratitude to her husband, daughter, colleagues, clients, family and friends from a myriad of cultural contexts.
