Why choose me as your therapist?

How Can We Reconnect?


Reconnecting couples in crisis is my specialty, and helping couples realize their relationship goals is my passion. In my work as therapist at VA Healthcare, I collaborated with dozens of veterans and their families as they repaired their relationships, recovered from severe mental illness, and rebuilt trust and intimacy.


Whether PTSD, depression, anxiety or addictions are sapping your relationship of vitality, an infidelity has ruptured your trust, or your conversations end in fights and stony silence, you can rely on me to help restore health and secure attachment to your lives. 


Working with couples, I generally use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).  EFT has been shown to be effective for most couples by ample research – in as few as 10 - 12 sessions – with lasting results. EFT is also a good fit for my background and orientation, which is humanistic and grounded in the science of attachment and interpersonal neurobiology. I am competent at creating a safe, balanced, compassionate space for clients to grow and flourish.
