I like people.

I’m a counselor committed to helping couples and individuals discover and become the most authentic version of themselves. My work with couples is focused on identifying barriers to connection and equipping them with the tools they need to overcome them. My work with individuals combines a wide variety of techniques drawn from therapeutic traditions like CBT, narrative therapy, polyvagal theory, EMDR, and mindfulness to help people come home to themselves. One of my passions is helping people learn and grow. I’ve got a podcast on relationships called Super Together, which you can subscribe to at I’ve also created some e-classes for couples which you can purchase at AVAILABILITY UPDATE JULY 2021: I'm accepting new clients, but how quickly I can get them in will depend on a handful of factors like availability and location preference. If you would like to get an idea of when we might be able to connect, please reach out to my scheduler at or 913-603-7353.
