My Journey in Psychology

My father is also a relationship counselor, and I felt drawn toward this field from a young age. Throughout my education, I studied how relationships develop and are maintained, along with predictors of relationship success. Today, I offer individual and couples counseling sessions and develop educational courses and workshops to help people find health and happiness in both their personal and professional relationships. In the past, I’ve worked in various clinical settings, such as VA hospitals, university counseling centers, and community mental health. 

As the director of research and development at Love Thinks LLC, I conduct research on program effectiveness, manage the blog (, and create new products to educate our audience about relationships. Our goal is to provide user-friendly and practical resources to help people learn how to develop and sustain healthy relationships. I also love sharing my knowledge with an Instagram community of over 100,000 people via @mylovethinks. Personally, I’ve been happily married for nine years and am the proud mom of two rambunctious preschoolers. 

I’m overjoyed to be here as part of Flo’s medical board! Relationships are such a key aspect of our overall health and well-being, and I enjoy advising on content for our millions of users to help them have those important conversations, set boundaries, and feel fulfilled in their connections with others.
