Have you lost the physical or emotional connection in your marriage? Have you experienced infidelity? Or maybe you just want to communicate better and need some quick tools to improve your relationship? Whatever the reason, nourishing your relationship is one of the best investments you can make. A strong marriage takes work and I'm here to help you put in that work. I am passionate about helping marriages thrive and work to ensure both partners feel validated in our sessions. I also enjoy working with women who want help with anxiety, depression, life transitions, motherhood, grief, self esteem, and work/life balance.
Whether you are dating and thinking of marriage or have been married 25 years, I'd love to help! I have over 7 years of specialized training in couples therapy, including Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and Gottman Level 2 certified. Both of these methods help to improve connection, communication, and intimacy.
I know it can be overwhelming trying to find a therapist. I want you to feel comfortable working with me so I offer a free 15 min phone consultation to determine if we're a good fit. If you have any questions please call or email me.
