"Are you having trouble in your relationship? Increasing arguments, lost trust, resentment, distance and problems with intimacy are some of the issues that make having a happy relationship seem impossible. Maybe you are not sure if your relationship can ever be happy and healthy again or if it will even survive. I believe there is hope for struggling couples to become stronger, healthier and happier by getting clear about why they are where they are and where they want to be -- individually and as a couple -- and what it will take to get there."

"Personal crises and problems offer an opportunity for growth and transformation. I believe that one of the most important aspects of therapy is allowing someone to share in the difficulties and thus undo the devastating loneliness that one can feel in their crisis. I enjoy getting to know clients on a personal level and my work incorporates many relational aspects and experiential practices. My focus areas have to do with gaining a better sense of self and self-trust, the management of relationships, increasing emotional connection and expression, and finding greater purpose and meaning."

""Why should I go to counseling?" Most of us are no strangers to the difficulties that can be present in daily life. From pressures at work to meet a deadline, work overtime, or getting along with your boss to the conflicts at home: Maybe with with a significant other, children, parents, siblings, neighbors, etc. Many of us may also believe that these are things that we should be able to deal with on our own. "I shouldn't need help with these things," or "how can a stranger tell me about my life?" Well, counseling offers a unique relationship that is difficult to find with friends or family. When we talk to loved ones about our problems, many times we get advice on what we should do instead of what we are already doing. We may even get 5 minutes of our side before they tell us about their own experiences and problems. When you go to counseling you have the opportunity to get all of your pressures and stresses off your chest with someone who can listen and give their undivided attention to you. If a safe space in therapy is achieved, you will actually get the opportunity to self-reflect and evaluate the issues that you are struggling with. "
