About Me

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in both New York and Maryland. I have 4 years of working with couples on their journey to strengthening their relationship. I have always been intrigued by couples therapy. Although it can be very challenging, I find that it creates many opportunities for my own creativity to be expressed through couple activities. I like to use activities to help develop and re-train skills to be honorable partners in couple's commitment to one another.

So may patterns are learned in relationship with one another and seem like there is no way out. But if you are willing and wanting to swap out your stagnancy and unhelpful cycles in your relationship for lifelong learning and growing in new ways with one another, allow me the opportunity to assist you in this. I believe that if we are willing to try new things, we will get new results.

My counseling style is very flexible and creative. I find myself naturally being able to support and encourage, but also challenging clients as necessary. I believe in assisting others with being their highest self, because we all are so valuable.

It takes strength and courage to seek out support and assistance through therapy, and I will respect your vulnerability with confidentiality and respect.

I look forward to being apart of your journey.

I provide live sessions via video for couples.

Tori was able to help us through a very tough time in our relationship. She guided us to a deep place of understanding and helped us rediscover our love for each other. We are so grateful for the time that she spent with us!

Torrie is kind, flexible, available, and helpful. I have already recommended her to others.

Has been exactly what we’ve been looking for! Torrie helps us have difficult conversations and it feels very comfortable. Much less clinical than in an office somewhere which we love.
