Rancho Mirage, California
I’ve been in private practice for over 20 years and I have specialized in helping couples achieve relational health for the past 15. In session, I create an atmosphere of direct communication that zeros in with speed, sensitivity, and clarity on the relationship and developmental patterns that stand in the way of change.
Our sessions together will integrate empathic joining, inner child work, skill building, and neuroscience techniques to lead you towards the experience of shared vulnerability that’s essential to emotional healing and the growth of intimacy.
When I am not supporting people in achieving an authentic and meaningful life and/or partnership, I am also a wife, teenager mother, dog mother and personal development junkie who is obsessed with learning evidenced based techniques that reveal the way that people become who they are and then how they can become who they want to be.
