Short Description Depth psychotherapy with adults and couples.

Description With warmth, humor, and a genuine desire to connect I provide a safe and welcoming space for individual adults and couples to explore and transform the obstacles that prevent them from feeling satisfaction and fulfillment in their relationships, work, and sense of self. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is where psychic change takes place, and therefore I am an active participant in the work. In my work with couples I strive to create an atmosphere of curiosity and empathy to help partners know and be known by each other. I provide concrete tools to help decrease reactivity, improve communication, and develop or strengthen the emotional bond between partners. My work is informed by self psychology, Relational psychoanalytic theory, Control Mastery theory, and Intersubjectivity Theory. I have been trained in John Gottman's Couples Therapy model and Emotionally Focused Therapy with couples.
