About

I believe in the innate goodness of people. Problems arise when we lack the ability to communicate what's really going on within or can't get past defenses to understand another person's feelings or experiences. Most people haven't been taught the skills to be safe listeners and so we grow up believing that others don't have capacity to understand us. I love bringing people closer by teaching them to cross the bridge into the world of others without losing themselves. I teach emotional safety by demonstrating emotional safety and believe breakdowns create opportunities for new breakthroughs.
I specialize in repairing connections between couples, individuals, children and parents. I have great success with difficult relationships. With expert guidance and a safe place to talk, people are often amazed to be able to express what seemed so hard to say and to listen without reacting or turning away.
I'm an advanced Imago couples and singles therapist and instructor. I am a certified Mars/Venus counselor, "Calling In The One" coach & "Conscious Uncoupling" coach and senior trainer. I also practice Internal Family Systems Therapy & EMDR. I am an adjunct faculty member at St. Elizabeth's Psychiatry Residency Program.
