About

Welcome! My primary marriage therapy approach is in the framework of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (known as ACT), which is an evidence-based approach. ACT emphasizes mindfulness and the present moment, identifying personal/relationship values, increasing flexibility in the way we relate to our thoughts and emotions (and each other), and becoming unstuck from unhealthy relational patterns. I very much value my clients and I tailor my therapy approach to what they want, need, and hope for. Therapy is not a one size fits all service and my therapeutically diverse training allows me to integrate techniques from additional therapies into the framework of ACT, to fit what my clients need.
My style is compassionate, values-based, and action oriented. Working with me involves delving into present, future, and past concerns, with a focus of meeting you and your relationship where you are NOW. We will increase insight, gain new perspectives, be challenged without judgment or expectations, and be encouraged to reflect on a deeper level. Often, change involves learning healthy coping skills, such as deep breathing and grounding techniques, setting healthy boundaries, communication skills, and clarifying values as a couple. Mindfulness is a powerful player in change/growth and will be included in our work as well. When the time is right we will focus more on changing behaviors, working at your own pace, to work towards goals that you both set for yourselves.
As humans, pain is part of life, which includes emotional and mental pain. This is especially true in terms of relationships. Often we fear or are uncomfortable with this and as a result have difficulty allowing space for these emotions. We do loads of things to avoid it and sometimes that ends up backfiring and getting in the way of things we actually want from life. My practice philosophy is driven by the belief that we have the ability to access internal resources to live a more balanced and healthier life. I am passionate about empowering others to access these resources, and providing the psychoeducation, skills, and safe space for them to do so.
It takes courage to recognize that additional help is needed and to try something different than you’re used to, especially in your relationship with your partner. Take a moment and appreciate your bravery, this is you both trying something new, something you may never have thought about before. I look forward to being a part of your process, helping you embrace life’s challenges, using your relationship's strengths and resources to move in the direction of desired growth.
