My desire is for people of all walks of life to find strength and hope in the midst of their storms. I am here to help you and your relationship Heal, Restore, and Learn. We do things and say things when we are hurt that many times we regret. Sometimes, we have a hard time accepting that we are hurt or that we have hurt others. The truth is that as humans we do not like pain, especially emotional pain; and we seek to distract, avenge or numb that pain. These efforts can become patterns and habits and some of these are blatantly wrong, but others may be more difficult to recognize.

I focus on relationship dynamics, helping clients identify and understand patterns that developed during our formative years and how those patterns may hinder or even harm our current relationships.
Relationships are crucial for our survival and mental well-being. Without proper support life becomes challenging and difficult to navigate, often resulting in experiences of stress, depression, or anxiety. We may find ourselves recreating relationship dynamics that we learned in childhood; from parents, care-givers, friends, and important relationships. We may be frustrated as to why and how these patterns play out again and again throughout life, but are uncertain as to how to make changes to break the cycle.

I also enjoy helping couples work through communication struggles and build toward a safer and more secure connection.
It was out of my experience pursuing different professional endeavors after getting my degree in Business Marketing - small business start ups, non-profit development and management, career advisement, and teaching art workshops to adults and teens - that I discovered my passion for walking with teens, adults, and couples through counseling. This process led to my getting my Master of Arts in Counseling and has shaped a caring understanding of others who grapple with life’s challenges, disappointments, traumas, unmet longings, and distant dreams.

Regardless of what's on your mind, from relationship issues, to job stress, addiction, generalized anxiety, to just about anything else, I am confident we can work together to find that next big breakthrough!.
We all have challenges. Admittedly some are objectively harder than others but our own challenges are unique to each of us and can seem devastating from our perspective. I would like to help you work through yours. I am not going to give you platitudes. Instead, I want to help you learn to accept, cope, cry if you need to, and then get back up! It’s not easy, but you can do hard things! As a college professor, and my background in medicine, my natural instinct is to make sure you understand both the biological and psychological reasons behind your troubles and then we work together to put YOU back in control of your life.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
