Healthy relationships and freedom from addictions, depression, low self-esteem, and excessive stress, anger, and anxiety are possible and essential for enjoying a fulfilling life. At times we need help from an experienced professional who listens, understands, and believes our pain, someone who can help us overcome and grow through a crisis. Making sure that each client feels safe and comfortable while talking about personal concerns is my fundamental priority. Then, I help people renew hope for their future and rebuild conflicted relationships. Finally, a personalized plan is developed to help you handle future challenges well.

Using evidence-based Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Family Systems, and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), I help individuals, couples & families enjoy positive, lasting change. In counseling & workshops, I help couples develop a closer bond and lasting intimacy! I help people heal in my Pornography & Sex Addiction and Partners Betrayal Recovery groups.

From the start, I view the whole person (mind, body, and spirit) and work to identify each individual's and couple's existing strengths and resources and help put those valuable assets to work for them. We consider thoughts, emotions, and bodily responses to bring an enjoyable, balanced life!

This two-day couples enrichment experience is based on the book "Hold Me Tight: Conversations for Connection" and was developed by Dr. Sue Johnson, director of ICEEFT and creator of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). Participants will uncover negative patterns and discover hurtful cycles in their relationship that cause them unhappiness, stress, and disconnection. They will discover hidden emotions and build patterns of loving connection. Active participation in the larger group is welcome but not required. This couple experience is limited to 10 couples.

Women Healing from Sexual Betrayal & Affair

Whether he has persistently viewed pornography, engaged in cybersex, cheated by participating in a one-time or ongoing affair, the traumatic impact on your mind, body and heart can be devastating! The news feels overwhelming, your life is disrupted, and you may have trouble managing parts of your life as you are left to pick up the pieces. And trust and forgiveness are far-off concepts. Whether you decide to continue the relationship or not, participating in a safe, supportive community while learning insights and skills to move through the traumatic effects is vital for your well-being.
