I will tailor treatment to meet your personal goals. In our work together, we will provide you with the tools you need to achieve your goals.
When working with couples, I will support your partner and you as you restore your relationship to a more intimate and satisfying one.

I integrate multiple evidence-based therapies and am guided by current research on effective treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), hypnosis, and mindfulness based therapies.
