Modern Therapy
For the 
Modern Adult
Who is Struggling
in Their relationship 

Welcome!

I'm a millennial therapist who understands the unique challenges facing today's adults aged 21-45. Whether you're struggling to navigate the world of dating apps, dealing with the aftermath of a breakup, feeling stuck in a toxic relationship, dealing with an affair, or feeling overwhelmed in a long-term relationship, I'm here to help you navigate the ups and downs of modern relationships.

I'm not here to judge, but to support you through whatever you're going through. I use a combination of evidence-based therapy techniques, authenticity, and a healthy dose of humor and realness to help you overcome your relationship issues and start living your best life. 

Frustration is a common emotion in any relationship, but it can be particularly difficult to navigate when you're dealing with issues like trust, communication, or intimacy. If you're feeling stuck and unsure of how to move forward, know that you don't have to figure it out on your own. Together, we can identify the root causes of your frustration, explore your feelings, and develop practical strategies for overcoming the obstacles that are holding you back. Don't let frustration rob you of the love and happiness you deserve.

At the core of my practice is a belief in the power of human connection. I know that it can be tough to open up to a stranger about your personal life, but I promise to create a warm and welcoming environment where you can feel comfortable to explore your feelings and work towards your healing goals.

So whether you're dealing with trust issues, communication problems, or simply feeling stuck in a rut, I'm here to help you find your way back to happiness and fulfillment. Let's start this journey together - I can't wait to meet you!
