Announcement icon I am offering Zoom, video, FaceTime, & phone sessions during this challenging time. I wish you and your family good health and peace.
I specialize in treating treating high achieving individuals & couples, with perfectionist tendencies. My priority is your emotional safety. Non judgmental support allows for your sharing openly and honestly. The need to "be right" can be unconscious, & you may be hurting those you love. My skilled intuition, and 25+ yrs. of clinical success, knows hope is available for the motivated and committed recovering anxious, obsessive, & over analyzing adult. Our trusting relationship inspires you to reflect upon your life/relationship goals; together we explore, & honestly challenge: "Do I want to be right?" Or, do I want to be loved?"
I carefully listen and engage with intent to your unique experiences, and use our working relationship - gaining insight into your personal blind spots that are causing you emotional discomfort. You will be challenged with loving support, to see what you have been protecting yourself from. I personalize tools for you, that can powerfully impact your life.
Sometimes, painful ruptures in a marriage, or family become overwhelming to repair by the individual's alone, and communication becomes stagnant. In addition to counseling, I offer conflict resolution through my mediation services - an unbiased forum for lending fair solutions that all parties both agree to, and can live with.

Embrace your Pain and Grow!

You cant stop the waves of life, but you can? learn to surf! Life's waves promote feelings of fear, anxiety, depression/loneliness and can wash away feelings of stability. Mature, committed, growth oriented, self-reflective group members learn to navigate the tools & have the chance to "see" themselves through their own eyes, as the "smoke in mirrors" clears up in an emotionally safe forum - where truth takes precedence over appearances, and humility inspires intimate connections bestowing a rich sense of well-being.
