I created The Help Couch to facilitate positive change for individuals and couples. Intimate relationships, parenting, growing up, work, school, and social commitments - we understand how trying everyday life can be when things are out of balance. You are not alone in your challenges and you do not have to carry the weight by yourself. Together we will cultivate greater confidence, build richer, more intimate and fulfilling relationships and improve your feelings and behaviors.
Specializing in self-worth, intimate relationships, and family systems, our approach helps individuals and couples overcome conflicts and keep passion alive. We help people conquer problematic behaviors and improve mental health and functioning.
I care deeply about my work and the people we see. I have strived to hire a great group of therapists while creating a practice based on honesty, integrity, and empathy. Our style is warm and non-judgmental, and the therapeutic approach is tailored to meet your needs. We look forward to joining you on your path to well-being.
I am here to witness, listen, and assist you in the process of understanding what you are struggling with. Be it the stressors you are currently encountering or the hardships and heartaches you have experienced in your life, I am here to focus on and assist with your needs. I am here to be your helper in understanding and coping with your depression, anxiety, trauma, relationships, and family issues. I am here to talk about work - family balance, family roles stress, parenting, marriage and divorce, grief/loss, addiction, and other challenges.
I utilize Narrative Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Family Dynamics/Systems, Culturally Informed, Intergenerational Therapy, and Client Centered Therapy Models for individuals, couples, and families. I am LGBTQ friendly. I have worked as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for the past 10 plus years.

Welcome! Are you struggling with life’s challenges? Would you like support in navigating mood, emotional expression, or connecting your past to your present and making sense of that bridge?

Are you preparing for or have you undergone weight loss surgery (including bariatric revision surgery)? It is often underestimated how integral the mental and emotional components of WLS are in the lifelong post-op journey. I specialize in therapy aimed at helping clients work through weight regain, transfer addiction, relationship to food, and healing trauma.
Additionally, I hold PMH-C certification which means I have specialty training in the assessment, support, and treatment of those who wish to begin a family, who are pregnant, or are in the postpartum period. My expertise along with my passion for this facet of life provides me the tools and understanding to support you while we explore the depth, complexity, and newness of emotions that often arise throughout the perinatal experience.
The next step is simple, just reach out and contact us. The administrative staff would be happy to answer any questions you may have as well as help you schedule your first session.

These skills can aid in strengthening your confidence, communication, and ability to manage stressful situations.
Does your adult ADHD further complicate things? Utilizing a strength-based approach to life we can establish strategies for organization, managing issues of procrastination and avoidance. In practice, I utilize a down to earth, client centric approach that creates effective and practical solutions you can use.
Life is full of changes and transitions. It is my goal that clients feel comfortable discussing their individual circumstances and concerns in an emotionally safe and non-judgmental environment.
Whatever the issue, whether it is:
managing symptoms of anxiety and depression
grief and loss
relationship challenges with family/significant others/friends
the transition to adulthood for young adults
gender identity challenges and transitions
maternal and paternal mental health (such as fertility issues, miscarriage/perinatal loss, the transition into parenthood and parenting challenges),
or other concerns unique to you, we will work together to help you cope and manage. I use a variety of approaches to individualize care when working with clients. My intention is to help clients develop their own healthy tools and coping skills to allow them to reach their goals.
