Offers Sliding Scale Therapy

Relationships can be a profound place of healing. However, sometimes relationships feel far from healing due to unresolvable conflict, feelings of dissatisfaction, and loss of connection. We can forget what drew us to our partners in the first place, we can feel caught in trying to figure out how we got to a place so far from where we began, and suddenly feel a lack of hope in our relationship’s future. 

What people want out of relationships tends to be like a fingerprint profoundly unique and tailored to unique needs, desires, values, and goals in life.  The question becomes how to we take two (or more) people with different attachment histories, different backgrounds, different upbringings, and create a relationship that is mutually satisfying and promotes each person’s growth? 

Therapy is a good place to begin the process of discovering why we relate the way we do, what makes us tick, what promotes healing in us, and what diverts us away from our growth. We can work together collaboratively to find out how to change patterns of relationship to create more compassionate heart-centered relational experiences. 

My therapeutic style is warm, directive, and compassionate. I practice integral therapy to tailor therapy to the needs of the client. Additionally, I tend to draw on early- attachment based treatment, psychoanalytic theory, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), and feminist theory. 

I hold a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Integral Counseling from California Institute of Integral Studies, a Master’s Degree in Religion and Philosophy with a concentration in Women’s Spirituality, and a Bachelor of Arts in Music with an outside field in Religion/Philosophy from Ithaca College. I deeply enjoyed working with couples during my practicum placement at Golden Gate Integral Counseling Center from diverse ethnic, sexual orientation, and gender identity backgrounds. I value creativity, self-compassion, and social justice.
