In couples therapy, we’ll explore barriers that prevent you from feeling close. Utilizing Gottman Method, you’ll be guided through productive meaningful conversations and process your feelings to better understand what impacts your relationship.
In marathon couples therapy we dive into processing past unhealed injuries and learn new ways of communicating. You’ll develop skills to deepen your intimacy and manage conflict more effectively. I customize weekend intensives with each couple to meet your unique goals.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence-based treatment for trauma & other distressing life experiences. Sometimes these events can cause thoughts, beliefs, images, emotions, or physical sensations to persist long after the threat has passed. It can keeps us from having freedom to think about other things. Rather than focusing on changing the emotions, thoughts, or behaviors resulting from the distressing issue, EMDR allows our brain to resume its natural healing process & resolve unprocessed memories.
During individual therapy sessions, you’ll have a safe space to explore how your mind is impacting your life. This is where it all comes together. Bringing in your stressors + guidance on coping skills + processing through lived experiences that have gotten you where you are today.
I’m a body-positive & identity-affirming therapist specializing in young adults & professionals facing anxiety, disordered eating, body image issues, trauma, relationship challenges, perfectionism, depression, and women's issues.

"I feel safe/secure in my therapy/client relationship with Ametis. I have been In therapy more than 10 yrs and the last 2 yrs with Ametis, I have made more progress in my mental/emotional health. Ametis, you are a God-send."
"We love Ametis. She is exactly the person we needed to help manage our situation. With her help and guidance, we truly feel stronger as a couple. She has been a blessing, especially through the craziness the epidemic has thrown at us."
"I like her ability to create a comfortable and open environment. She is a great conversation starter, and it’s easy to express ourselves about anything. Ametis is very welcoming and a great listener."
"Ametis always summarizes what I’m saying to make sure she understands me and it makes me feel like she really is listening and cares. I have processed trauma from my childhood and am improving with trust in my relationship."
