For 14+ years I have helped couples , teens, families, and individuals find relief.
Welcome. If you’re here, likely something is going on in your life that you would like to change. Perhaps you’re overwhelmed, sad, anxious, tired, in pain, on edge, bingeing on a substance or the internet, or having sleep issues. Trouble communicating with loved ones? Disconnected rather than connected? Maybe you can’t quite put your finger on it, but life just isn’t what it was, what you thought it would be, or what you would like. Anger, sadness, anxiety, disappointment, worry all play a part in everyone’s life, but sometimes it increases to the point where it’s just too much to bare alone.

I would be honored to partner with you on this journey.
All it takes is a little bit of adulting to realize that right about when we think we have it all together, life throws us a curveball. These instances can leave us feeling stuck – stuck in unhealthy patterns and behaviors, in feelings of anxiety or depression, and even in relational conflicts that seem impossible. For some, it’s balancing the demands of parenthood or a job situation that feels like it’s heading toward burnout. For others, it might be relationships that lack boundaries and expectations. However, here’s a glimmer of hope…you have the ability to move beyond “just surviving” and toward a place where you can thrive.

Does your home environment feel tense or like you're "walking on eggshells?" Have you experienced pain, loss of or separation by a close family member or friend? Does parenting your children seem overwhelming and like a never ending battle? Do you wish these relationships would just get better?

I believe the most powerful element of getting help is the right relationship with the right person.
Life can be overwhelming and confusing. Anxiety and worries can overtake the joy of the moment. Traumatic events rob the ability to be fully alive in the present. And all these factors can make anyone feel isolated and completely alone. So much of our world has become isolated and smaller, making connections rare. It’s hard not knowing where to turn, who’s safe, and who can hold space for all the things.

I have extensive experience in working with adults struggling with depression; grief and loss; anxiety; relationship conflict/divorce; loneliness; low self esteem; mid-life crises; addiction; creative blocks; fear of change/life transitions and aging issues, with a focus on supporting “dynamic” aging.
Deeply committed to personal growth myself, I know how hard it can be sometimes, how trapped we can feel when we find ourselves repeating painful patterns, unable to learn and grow from our life experiences or make the changes we need... That’s why I will provide you with a safe and supportive environment, a compassionate atmosphere free of judgment and shame as we explore and sort through what has brought you to this challenging turning point in your life… Everything you need to create a meaningful, fulfilling life is within you.

I have experience in treating patients with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, life transitions/adjustment, aging, and anger management.
Individual therapy is a powerful process to help grow insight, identify and cultivate resiliency, develop healthier coping mechanisms, and progress towards your unique goals for personal growth. Individual therapy can serve as a safe haven to openly process past wounds, learn ways to cope with past, current, or upcoming stressors, and to identify and develop skills and traits to better tackle both unexpected or planned challenges that come one’s way. Individual therapy is effective not only for addressing and reducing problematic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, but also for improving and maintaining one's well-being.

I have 30 years of experience working with individuals and couples at various stages in the life cycle.
Living life on life's terms can be challenging. If you are overwhelmed by stress, find yourself repeating dysfunctional patterns in your personal life, reliving past hurts or experiencing difficulty navigating life transitions, therapy can provide relief. Relationship problems, anxiety, depression, and physical ailments are all common symptoms signaling that it may be time to address possible underlying issues which can cause emotional and mental pain. The experience of psychotherapy should be illuminating, validating and empowering. Choosing the right therapist is key.

I believe a strong therapeutic relationship can change your life. I bring over twenty years of experience to my work with adults, adolescents and couples . I have extensive training in psychodynamic psychotherapy--a depth therapy that can bring about lasting change. Within this framework, my clients can safely explore the emotional injuries of the past and develop healthier and more loving ways of dealing with their relationships. We crave closeness, yet for many, our childhoods have left us poorly prepared. Instead of feeling joy and purpose, we feel misunderstood, lonely and depressed. I work successfully with my clients to transform their lives and their relationships.

I believe that through the process of developing insight and awareness into issues and behaviors, I can in turn help clients to better manage their symptoms and develop coping mechanisms which enable them to lead more enjoyable and gratifying lives.  My aspiration is to help clients move beyond fleeting, quick fixes and, instead, implement long-lasting change.

In addition to individual therapy, I also offer couples counseling and marriage therapy (including GLBT) to couples who want to come in together to rebuild trust and intimacy.
Recovering from infidelity or other breach of trust? I help both individuals and couples figure out their relationships. I want to help you find out what is best for you and your future. I have counseled both the cheater and the betrayed; the heart-breaker and the heart-broken. This helps me as your counselor because I better understand why people leave & why they decide to stay. If you can get into the mindset of your partner you can communicate with them better. I have authored several books on helping marriages survive & thrive after infidelity.

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.
