You want to feel connected - feel like your partner sees you, hears you, understands you.
You may find yourself here, feeling completely disconnected and distant from your partner. They're the person you used to tell everything to, who used to bring butterflies to your stomach; but you’re sitting back, looking at your relationship now, wondering how you two got here. Your once soul-mate has somehow become nothing more than your roommate - going through the motions to get through another day. You’re tired of the fighting, of the eye-rolls, but most of all, tired of the silence. You feel like you’ve tried everything.

I have worked with individuals, couples and families in the midst of all types of difficulties— imprisonment, DCF involvement, addiction, trauma, severe mental illness, military life, infidelity and grief to name a few.
Maybe you want to move on from painful break up or divorce. Maybe you want to start a healthier lifestyle, stop an addiction or end a generational curse of abuse and trauma. Sometimes as people we get stuck in life—whether it is related to our past experiences, our current circumstances--or both. Sometimes as people we hurt ourselves by internalizing what has happened or happening to us, which can at times weigh us down and stop us from moving forward and living gratifying, rewarding lives.

I have extensive experience in counseling individuals ( and couples) with cancer, other life changing medical conditions, and near death experiences.
I approach things differently, blending psychotherapy with intuition. I have extensive training in the treatment of trauma, anxiety, and depression, as well as energy psychology. Some fundamental questions in our work together will be: how does fear control your life? what causes you to stay stuck in unhealthy patterns? Digging into these patterns is our launchpad. But tapping into your intuition and your higher self is a game changer. Fear will no longer be in charge of your mind. My passion is to help you connect the dots in your own life and really trust yourself.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
