 My Approach

I'm so glad you're reading my profile and thinking about seeking help. Deciding that you're ready to change and developing a good relationship with a therapist you feel comfortable with are the first steps toward taking charge of your life and feeling better.  
I’m a psychologist and couples therapy expert who loves helping people heal old wounds, learn new skills, and grow into happier, healthier human beings. I feel privileged to be a part of my clients’ journeys as they let go of old patterns and develop new ways of seeing themselves and the world around them.  
I'm committed to creating a warm, compassionate, and open environment for you to heal, learn, and grow. When things get tough, I'll be here to offer you the hope, enthusiasm, and humor you need to keep going and the guidance and feedback you need to stay on track with your goals. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and other proven approaches to help you achieve real, lasting change.

My Specialties
My passion as a therapist is helping people develop happy, close relationships with their partners, family, and friends. I especially love helping couples recover from the distress of chronic disconnection and helping them build the warm, secure bonds they long for. I also really enjoy helping people heal and move forward from past traumatic experiences.
Some areas of expertise for me include...
  • Helping couples build better, happier relationships
  • Helping individuals develop close, meaningful relationships with partners, family, and friends
  • Healing from childhood emotional, physical, or sexual abuse

About Me
I’m a licensed clinical psychologist and relationship expert with a master’s degree and a doctorate in clinical psychology. I have over thirteen years of experience working with men, women, couples, and families in Fair Oaks, Folsom, Roseville, and the greater Sacramento area.
I’m currently in the final stages of getting certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an approach that research has shown to be the most effective style of couple therapy. When I’m not working with clients, I love spending time with my family and friends, growing heirloom fruits and veggies, practicing yoga, running, and generally finding any excuse to be outside.
