"I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors."

"I assist couples and adults with relationship difficulties, parenting, personal and professional life transitions, stress reduction, anxiety/depression, and grief. I use a combination of Mindfulness and Relational therapies because they support my belief that satisfying relationships within our self and with those we love provides the basis for a meaningful life. When our sense of connectedness to others is absent or threatened, life can feel very unsatisfactory. The effectiveness of Mindfulness based therapy is also supported by a large and growing body of scientific evidence."

"You can change how you feel about yourself, gain control over your symptoms, and live with a greater sense of ease in 3 to 5 sessions. In one session, you will know if this therapy can help you, and it's very likely that it will. This is a new therapy, similar to EMDR. It is now used by the Veteran's Administration to treat PTSD in about 4 sessions. Studies show this therapy can transform negative emotions, significantly reduce or eliminate anxiety, irritability, compulsive behaviors, and enhance confidence and self-awareness. It is as remarkable as it sounds."

"I think counseling is always useful, even when there's nothing "wrong." We get a lot of chances to go, go, go but not a lot to slow down and reflect. Usually it takes some crisis of feeling or relationship to tell us it's time. I see those crises as opportunities, doorways to deeper understanding. And because we're not fixed individuals, they come and go as we change and grow."
