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.

Trauma can impact relationships with co-workers, friends, spouses, family members and the relationship with self. The beginning of your healing journey starts by looking within, building a healthy relationship with yourself, and making sense of your life story. What can help facilitate this process is the safe and trusting relationship created with an attuned Psychotherapist.

Falling in love is addictive. It is your brain on cocaine. Until, it isn't. At first, you couldn't picture months of arguing.Even an affair, broken trust. Perhaps you never imagined hiding away, secretly texting a colleague - s/he listens to you. Perhaps you just want the miscommunication and storming out of the room to end.

Often we seek out counseling when we're not feeling like ourselves, we feel out of control, we struggle to manage life's changes, or we feel dissatisfied with our life's direction. Sometimes we just feel stuck. Regardless of the reason, we naturally question change but can be unsure of the process. I provide a collaborative space to define that process and connect the person you see yourself as to the person you aspire to be. As a therapist and musician, my eclectic style and strategies are focused on building self-respect, healthy boundaries, insight, confidence, and self-compassion.

Conversations with co-workers, friends and/or family are difficult and often leave you spiraling, dwelling on it for days.

I enjoy working with clients who feel that their minds have become unmanageable. This experience often arises from a belief that inner conflict and complexity is a problem to be solved rather than a state of affairs to be understood and befriended. Sometimes this unmanageability shows up as anxiety, where the mind dreads bad outcomes and wont allow you to enjoy your life. Other times as depression, where the mind is mired in hopelessness, despair, or resentment. Addictions of various sorts can also arise from this state of affairs, whereby we try to distract or quiet our minds through destructive patterns of behavior.
