The theory and methodology I use to work with couples is called Imago Relationship Therapy.
There are points in life where you may ask yourself if the path you're on is leading you where you need to be going. You may be asking yourself questions like: "Is this the best I can expect from my marriage?" "Is this what I'm supposed to be doing with my life?" "Is the work I'm doing the work I was born to be doing?" I will work with you both to get answers to these questions and to more fully accept the answers you receive.

My specialization is in couples and families.
I am a compassionate, collaborative therapist who works with adults, adolescents and families to help them identify what they yearn for, recognize what is getting in the way of their accomplishments, and achieve rewarding changes in their lives. I help them recognize beliefs and habits that may serve as closed doors, and open themselves to more effective approaches which will help open doors. I find that communication and understanding of how other people work is a key to self understanding. I work from a holistic and psychotheraputic approach and I integrate life skills as tools which helps clients handle what they need right now.

In addition to my counseling services for adult individuals, I also help couples improve their communication, teamwork, understanding, and intimacy.
When you feel like you're just spinning your wheels, counseling can help you gain the traction you need to get your life moving forward again. Counseling can help you learn how to stop struggling with such difficulties as worry, unhappiness, self-doubt, lack of motivation, loneliness, homesickness, or the pain of loss. Counseling can help you get unstuck from repeated struggles with yourself and difficulties with others. In our meetings, you and I will work together to identify roadblocks that keep holding you back. I will assist you in creating permanent strategies to get past those roadblocks and start living the life you want.
