Not accepting new clients at this time. However, to be higher priority when I am you can let me know if you wish to be on the waiting list. I work with couples, families, individuals, children, teens, and groups who are struggling with communication, family relationships, couple's relationships, infidelity, grief and loss, divorce, family violence, sexual abuse, and sexual assault. Most people struggle in relationships with others at some point in their lives; this is part of being human. We can benefit from talking things through.

My specialty is couples counseling and sex therapy. I also address issues of spiritually and self-esteem.

I work with individuals to help them overcome painful childhood experiences and guide them to connect to others in healthy ways. I treat couples and individuals for orgasmic difficulties, disparate and low desire, body image issues, erectile difficulties, delayed ejaculation, premature ejaculation, painful intercourse, and lack of emotional intimacy during sex.

I have a practical, down-to-earth approach - seeking to identify, address, and resolve areas of conflict and obstacles in your life. I am there to support you through the process of self-discovery - creating a safe place to find your strength, your voice and to discover what is true for you.

My areas of interest include generalized anxiety, depression, substance use disorders, addictions, marriage and family difficulties, perfectionism, social anxiety, chronic stress and trauma, and first responder/veteran populations.
I seek to provide a safe therapeutic space that honors you as the expert in your life and assists you in achieving your goals. I have always resonated with Carl Rogers, who wrote, “When I accept myself as I am, then I can change.” I see counseling as a process of healing that invites you to tell your story without shame, build on your strengths, and discover untapped internal resources in collaboration with a professional guide. As you author the next chapter of your life, a transformation is possible where you move from surviving to thriving.

I truly believe that therapy is one of the best investments you can make for yourself and your family .
Do you long for increased understanding, improved communication, and deeper connection with your partner? Are you arguing more and enjoying each other less? Is the romance gone? Are you concerned about your child's mood or behavior? Does he/she seem anxious or depressed? Are you worried that you may repeat destructive patterns from your childhood? Would you like to improve communication with your child? Or, are you interested in working through your own individual unresolved issues or situational problems? Would you like to learn healthier coping skills, let go of self-defeating patterns, and move toward your full potential?

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
