I work with couples who present with a number of issues, including constant, bitter arguments; the revelation of a recent affair; sexual desire or sexual dysfunction difficulties; the possibility of separation or divorce; or just the desire to tune-up and strengthen their relationship.
Life provides many challenges to maintaining a healthy, happy relationship. Our relationships can be a great source of strength, but they can also cause pain and heartache. Whether you currently feel committed to building a better relationship, ambivalent about the future of your relationship, or fear that your relationship is on the brink of collapse--therapy can often help. Through looking at yourself, your partner, and your relationship in new ways, I help couples gain confidence and clarity about the next steps for their relationship and I help couples build satisfying relationships that last and are worth wanting.

I work with couples and individuals seeking help with improving their relationships due to communication barriers, infidelity, frequent conflict, parenting issues, separation or divorce, and more.
Relationships can be difficult. I work with clients to develop and execute plans to help them reach the goals they would like to achieve; both individually and within the context of their relationships. Therapy is a collaborative process, and I work hard to ensure my clients feel comfortable, well informed about their treatment goals and progress, and that the therapeutic methods being used align the two. In this space of authenticity and safety, clients are able to reach the insight and connection they've been missing in their relationships with themselves, their partners, and others.

I typically see clients for problems around communication, contemplating divorce, sexual desire/dysfunction, infidelity, or reoccurring arguments that cause bigger problems.
Relationships are incredibly rewarding but often challenge us in more ways than expected. Strong relationships are the foundation for a thriving life but for a variety of reasons, life gets in the way of thriving. Maybe you are looking for your relationship to thrive again or maybe you feel your problem is much bigger. No matter the issue, I believe therapy can help. My goal is for couples to look at themselves, their partner and their relationship in a new light. This creates the potential to have passionate and connected relationships while also growing as individuals.

The dissolution of a marriage is almost always an upsetting event, at the very least marked by disappointment and the loss of dreams and expectations.
