About

I'll help you find grounded, positive approaches to shift your situation, whether you're dealing with relationship frustrations or personal issues. I know what it's like to wonder if things can get better - and how to make that happen - and to think you should be able to figure it out on your own. If fights with your partner go nowhere, your sex life is disappointing (or non-existent), you suffer with anxiety or depression, or you or your partner struggle with out of control sexual behavior or drug/alcohol use, I can help. I work with both individuals and couples to improve issues that feel overwhelming or difficult to change.
I work with couples to fine-tune communication and build closeness. Learn to listen wholeheartedly. Either soften your approach to express your desires and limits effectively, or strengthen your delivery so your partner can hear your true needs. It's demoralizing to slog through fights - I'll teach you to share things productively and feel closer.
I work with substance abuse from a harm reduction perspective. If you want to see if you can control and reduce your use, I'll help you build in the supports and structure you need to discover if that's an option for you. I also support abstinence goals.
