If I were to recommend one question to ask a potential couples therapist when making your choice, it may surprise you! It would be to ask about their own relationship. In fact, it’s something I want my clients to know about me—my husband and I enjoy a vibrant and healthy marriage. This, of course, has come for me after years of personal work, a daily practice of love and communication, and a commitment both of us have made to continually deepen our relationship.
Life has certainly challenged me, and I’m sure it will continue to do so. The services I have to offer are only as good as the work I’ve done on myself in response to those challenges. For many years I have been pursuing my own growth and healing through psychotherapy, bodywork and energy work, the study of yoga and ayurveda, and participation in workshops and vision quests oriented toward deep soul work. When appropriate, I share my own insights and experience with my clients to help them see situations and challenges in a new way.
And a few last details about me. I moved to San Francisco in 2012 to start my marriage with my wonderful partner, Rod, and start my family. We have an ancient boxer-lab who loves to join therapy sessions and a beautiful little girl who lights up our life. When we aren’t at home working on our old Victorian, you can find us at the drop zone skydiving or in our RV exploring the world. Once a year, you can always find us in Black Rock City where we met, fell in love, and re-ignite our connection each year.
