Raised in Vermont, I spent my 20’s and much of my 30’s in New York City as a prominent voice-over artist. But after one too many “failed” relationships, I decided to take a lengthy solo trip throughout India and Southeast Asia. This induced a transformative soul search: I needed to figure out how to bring the success I had easily found in my career into my personal life, and find better, healthier ways of being in relationship.

So after receiving a BA from the New School for Social Research in NYC, I got my masters in family therapy (MFT) from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. While there, I counseled dozens of individuals, couples, and throuples at the Center for Sex Therapy, and Council for Relationships, the oldest and largest couples counseling center in the US. I have had extensive post-graduate training in couples work, sex therapy, and fertility counseling, including advanced training in EFT (Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy), the Gottman method, and Imago Relationship Therapy with Harville Hendrix. 

Now, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#97466) in private practice in both San Francisco and Mill Valley. I am currently studying couples counseling and sexuality with Esther Perel, and am working towards certification as a Relational Life Therapist with Terry Real. 

Let me share what I’ve learned with you. I will help you identify and unravel stuck interpersonal patterns and ways of being, while highlighting and emphasizing your personal and relational strengths. I specialize in helping people find clarity, authenticity, and fulfillment in their relationships with their loved ones and themselves. Contact me for a free 20 minute phone consultation and find out if we could be a good fit.
