I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors.

Trauma can impact relationships with co-workers, friends, spouses, family members and the relationship with self. The beginning of your healing journey starts by looking within, building a healthy relationship with yourself, and making sense of your life story. What can help facilitate this process is the safe and trusting relationship created with an attuned Psychotherapist.

Falling in love is addictive. It is your brain on cocaine. Until, it isn't. At first, you couldn't picture months of arguing.Even an affair, broken trust. Perhaps you never imagined hiding away, secretly texting a colleague - s/he listens to you. Perhaps you just want the miscommunication and storming out of the room to end.

You are so much more than your thoughts and impulses! My approach to counseling is holistic, client-centered and depth oriented, which encourages personal growth, transformation, and self-empowerment. I invite the whole person to come forward, even those parts we may have strong aversions to within ourselves. I offer ways to explore the self with curiosity and compassion, assisting clients in developing more acceptance of their individuality. I believe that the mind and body work together as one, and that when we observe them together, there is potential for new insights and a deeper connection to your innate wisdom.

I enjoy working with clients who feel that their minds have become unmanageable. This experience often arises from a belief that inner conflict and complexity is a problem to be solved rather than a state of affairs to be understood and befriended. Sometimes this unmanageability shows up as anxiety, where the mind dreads bad outcomes and wont allow you to enjoy your life. Other times as depression, where the mind is mired in hopelessness, despair, or resentment. Addictions of various sorts can also arise from this state of affairs, whereby we try to distract or quiet our minds through destructive patterns of behavior.

My approach integrates Eye Movement Reprocessing and Desensitization (EMDR) and mindfulness techniques into talk therapy. Using this process we will examine how past experiences impact current functioning. We will identify dysfunctional thought and behavior patterns and use EMDR to shift the perspectives that reinforce these habits. Then we will build communication and stress management skills to improve your coping.
