My focus is on relationships and I have a specialty working with couples .
My approach to therapy is to help my clients work their way through the layers of injury, loss and protection that surround them, to reach the more open, undefended core inside. I believe it is the experiencing of that deepest part of ourselves which makes us feel alive and makes us feel connected to ourselves and others. I work to create a safe, compassionate environment in which healing can happen in moments and over time. I work with couples and individuals to help them recognize and alter the patterns that seem to get them stuck in their relationships.

I help individuals and couples , who have experienced traumas, to understand the origins of their feelings, so they can improve their self-esteem, and learn to move forward into the lives that they want for themselves and their families.
Marriage is an intimate partnership that requires sharing yourself with someone else. A partnership between two people who have made a commitment to each other. This commitment has to be considered more important than any individual desire. The relationship has to come first. Couples therapy is a positive experience. It brings couples closer and makes life less stressful. Therapy adds a new dimension to your mutual communication. It may be hard to hear from your partner at first, but you may find that your mountainous challenges are really molehills.

In my work with couples , we identify unhealthy patterns of communication and replace them with more effective communication styles.
By providing a safe and supportive environment, clients are able to explore new approaches to ongoing life challenges. Some techniques I use suggest that our thoughts effect how we behave. Therefore, if we change the way we think, we may notice changes in our overall mood and behavior. My optimistic and caring style support self growth and empowerment. Part of my role as a therapist is to help my clients establish realistic goals that bring about positive change. I enjoy working with children, adolescents and adults.

I specialize in working with couples and adults to strengthen patterns of coping and relating.
Do you long for more intimacy and happiness in your life? Do you know what you want and seek the support to move into bold action? I believe people have an intrinsic sense of how personal dynamics may be creating or blocking what it is desired, but often get stuck in unconscious patterns and old behaviors. Taking the time to tune into self is a valuable resource for finding one's own voice and the natural solutions that reside within. I offer support to help you manage issues, find solutions, break patterns and create more of the life you want.

I have expertise in CBT, and also utilize skills from ACT, DBT, and Gottman methods for couples therapy when appropriate.
Welcome to my practice. It is very common to experience distressing emotions at various points in our lives. When this happens, we often engage in unhelpful patterns of behavior and thought that can maintain and exacerbate the problem. This leads many of us to feel stuck and even hopeless. I hope to be able to help you better recognize and understand your emotions, and provide a place of validation and support for your distress. In addition, I will work with you to identify unhealthy behaviors and patterns of thought, change them, and adopt new and healthier coping strategies.

At the heart of our struggles and pains are relationships. At the heart of our hopes and dreams are relationships.

Therapy helps you tackle some of the most challenging questions we all face. How do we repair what needs to be fixed in our relationships, including the relationship with ourselves? What needs attention, a new perspective, a better skill, or emotional resolve to enable you to become more authentic and improve your connection to self and others?

Whether in individual or couples therapy, you'll improve your communication abilities, develop better coping skills, enhance trust, leading to greater intimacy, connection, happiness and fulfillment in your life.
Do anxious thoughts & worry keep you up at night? Do you struggle with negative self-talk, self-criticism, blame for what you should or shouldn’t have done? Do you frequently compare yourself to others, & come up short? The stress of day-to-day life can become overwhelming & lead us to feel anxious & disconnected from ourselves, & our most essential relationships. We become exhausted, trying to manage work, family, friendships; only to find that we’ve neglected ourselves and our own needs. Let's work together to heal your past unresolved trauma, old wounds, gain clarity, achieve a sense of calm, & the confidence for you to thrive.
