About

Did you have a difficult childhood and are now afraid of repeating the same dysfunctional patterns in your own relationship? Are you afraid of intimacy and scared that your partner will reject and/or abandon you? Do you fear they won't "get" you? Maybe you have a hard time understanding yourself and knowing why you treat your partner the way you do. If you did not have the best childhood growing up, then chances are, you do not have a good model of what a healthy, life-long relationship or marriage looks like. Your parents did their best, but they struggled with their own issues and did not know have to have a healthy partnership.
My specialty is couples therapy in which one or both partners have a history of childhood trauma. You know you do not want to repeat the same patterns and intergenerational traumas in your own relationship. You want to learn how to heal your wounds as well as how to communicate clearly to your partner without dismissing their feelings or suppressing yours.
I use the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy to teach couples how to create a healthy partnership. I teach skills on how to build friendship, manage conflict, and understand each other’s life dreams. I also teach couples how to speak from the heart, listen to their partner's emotions, and see the deeper meaning in what's being said underneath.
