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.

Therapy is the most important gift you give yourself, and I encourage you to choose a therapist who is a good match for your needs. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, relationship problems, work-related stress, and abusive relationships--just to name a few. My approach to treatment is primarily present focused, because I believe that unresolved issues from our past end up repeating themselves in our current relationships. Together we will explore the ways that your thoughts, feelings, and actions affect your mood and the way you experience the world.

I approach my clients with interest and compassion, creating a relationship that fosters deeper self-awareness, personal effectiveness, and meaningful change. The relationship developed in psychotherapy is an important resource, because it offers an opportunity to directly examine and explore these issues. I work with you to explore how your family history, life experience, and current stressors contribute to the issues that bring you to therapy. For people confronting infertility and other medical issues, I offer support with decision-making, stress reduction, and working through feelings of loss. Third-Party Reproduction services are also available, including donor evaluations and recipient consultations.

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.

I have had the privilege of witnessing people undergo the slow, extremely subtle and remarkable journey of healing and self-transformation. This process of psychological growth is astoundingly complex, multilayered, circular and even mysteriously numinous in its unfolding. My philosophy as a therapist is primarily on core transformation rather than merely symptom management and needless to say, I strongly believe in the centrality of the therapeutic relationship as a significant healing agent. Moving towards our wholeness necessitates the courage to first move into the wounded parts that we all have as members of the human species.

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.
