See how we can work together to help you move forward.
As a therapist, I am dedicated to providing a safe, transformative space for individuals to come in and explore what is keeping them stuck and helping them move past blocks and traumas in their life so that they can get to a happy and healthier place. I take pride in providing an environment where clients feel supported, while also giving clients the gentle push that they need to challenge negative thoughts and beliefs in order to create more space for kindness and change within themselves. Taking the first step to reach out for help can be challenging. I am here to make it as easy as possible and support you through that process.
Some issues addressed in individual therapy include:
- Anxiety, stress reduction, depression
- Career stress and life transitions
- Emotional regulation and anger management
- Relationship issues
- Trauma and loss
If you are wondering if individual therapy is the right fit for you, please give me a call to speak further. I tailor my approach to each individual client and incorporate relational, attachment-based approaches, mind-body work and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in my work with clients. I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation to assess how I can best help you. For more info, check out my FAQ.
as seen on Yelp:
“I’ve been going to Tina for a little over a year, and she’s helped me work through so many issues. She’s an excellent listener, and remembers the smallest details without ever taking notes during sessions. She’s fully present, asks all the right questions, and doesn’t make you feel as though you’re being judged.
That being said, she isn’t afraid to challenge you. While she knows when the right times are to listen, she also knows when to give meaningful feedback/advice so you can actually grow and work through your issues. I always leave our sessions with more clarity and peace of mind, and I’m so grateful to have found her.”
Gottman Method Couples Counseling
Our romantic relationships are often at the center of our world. If you are struggling to feel joy and satisfaction in your relationship, couples therapy can be a great way to help explore how to communicate better, heal past hurts and get back on the same page in order to move forward.
As a Level 3 trained Gottman Method Couples Therapist, I am deeply passionate and devoted to working with couples on resolving issues that have come up within the relationship. Below are some common issues I address directly in my work with couples:
- Rebuilding trust
- Processing after an affair
- Parenting and co-parenting issues
- Emotion regulation
- Effective listening and communication skills
- Exploring sexual blocks and challenges
- Overcoming insecurities
What to Expect with the Gottman Method- How it Works
Gottman Method Couples therapy is an approach based on 40 years of research with thousands of couples. It works to address and strengthen friendship, conflict management and create shared meaning between couples. For more information about this modality, you can visit this website.
I begin couples therapy with a 3-step assessment phase, which first involves meeting with couples to gain a detailed history and understanding of the relationship. In this initial session I will be gathering information about the relationship and introducing the Gottman Method. In the following two sessions, I’ll be meeting with each partner individually and having both partners fill out an online assessment which measures various aspects of relational well-being.
Feedback Session & Therapy Process
After both individual sessions, I will reconvene with couples to share the results of the online assessment and lay out the treatment plan for therapy. I’ll provide more education in this session about the Gottman Method and how it can help. Following the assessment and feedback session, we will collaborate to best meet your needs and help you reach your goals. I typically meet with couples on a weekly basis until goals are met and the couple feels ready to continue on their own what has been learned in the therapy room.

“Tina is an amazing therapist. She cares deeply about her clients and is incredibly insightful. I refer to her often as I know her clients are in the best of hands!

CBT & Mindfulness for Anxiety
In a world where we are constantly connected, distracted, moving and busy, it can feel like worry is taking over our life. If anxiety seems to be getting in the way of your work, sleep, relationships and overall well-being, it may be time to get help to learn to better cope. I am passionate about helping clients create more space for silence, reflection and self-care in order to feel more peace within.
As a CBT group leader and educator, I help clients understand the connection between thoughts and feelings, challenge distorted thinking and learn skills to manage anxiety. Anxiety is not only in our mind, but experienced in our body as well, and I work to educate clients about the brain-body connection, teach mindfulness practices, and help you incorporate these into your life in a way that fits and feels doable for you.
