My work with clients falls into 2 major categories- psychotherapy or coaching.  I also offer workshops, events, retreats, and professional consultation for therapists and matchmakers.  You can learn more about all of the options below.


Nearly a decade ago I co-founded Group Therapy Associates  with a desire to create a modern psychotherapy practice focused on strengthening all relationships and helping clients live life with passion and purpose.

Now as CEO of the practice, I work every day to further that original vision of emotional wellness and healthy relationships as integral parts of a happy and fulfilling life.

In the last two years I launched two new divisions of GTA called Conversations Off the Couch and Therapy Is Not A Dirty Word.

Conversations Off the Couch offers a more casual approach to personal development through relationship coaching, social events, and various workshops and retreats.

And Therapy is Not a Dirty Word began as a social media campaign but has blossomed into an amazing event series called Q & A Happy Hours. These events bring local therapists together with the public in fun, relaxed settings to talk about all the ways therapy is NOT a dirty word… We also sell some pretty cool products and it serves as the new home for my podcast, With That Being Said!
