About

Angry, anxious, confused, or depressed because of relationship problems? Feel your partner never listens to you? Keep having the same old fights over and over? Imago Relationship Therapy is very helpful in restoring connection, safety, and romance. As a Certified Imago Therapist I enable each partner to be heard and understood so the needs of each can be met. Usually couples experience some immediate relief from the pain of alienation and begin to rediscover the love that brought them together. If your spouse won't come for counseling, come alone! I also do individual therapy, including EMDR for trauma resolution..
I am also trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy which, like Imago, seeks to help couples restore comfort and positive excitement to relationships which have "gotten offtrack." I have led many marriage enrichment workshops and premarital seminars which focus on communication, conflict resolution, and improving intimacy in couple relationships.
I am a Presbyterian minister with years of pastoral experience and am comfortable dealing with spiritual issues if clients wish to do so. Most of my couple sessions run 75 to 90 minutes (at no extra charge), to allow adequate time to work through issues.
