Have you ever felt like life is crashing down on you, everywhere you turn is a closed door? Or maybe you just need someone to talk to? Therapy can be your missing piece! This can be your open door. Divorce, kids, stress, work, trauma, or just life in general brings all of us on different journeys; therapy can help you gain healthy insight and learn positive coping strategies for wherever you are at in life.

Marriage is a challenge. A beautiful challenge, but a challenge nonetheless. Money fights, personality differences, past wounds, unmet expectations, communication styles and conflict resolution are just a few of the major challenges married people are likely to face. Your marriage should be a source of refuge and strength, but too often it becomes a primary factor in anxiety, depression or fatigue. Just as the tires on a car can get out of alignment and drift in dangerous directions, so can a marriage. As a therapist, my goal is to help you and your spouse align your tires and get moving in the right direction.
