"Are you struggling in your relationships? Are you and your partner experiencing conflict that you can't seem to resolve? I can help you understand the underlying issues and needs that lead to withdrawal or anger, and work with you to re-establish strong bonds. Together we will identify the negative patterns that repeat, learn how to interrupt those and to instead create positive conflict resolution skills. I am passionate about the work I do as a therapist, and I respect each person's struggle and strengths."

We cannot change difficult situations from the past, but together we can work to help you feel better in the future. I am a couple and family therapist, who frequently works with individuals as well. I work with individuals and couples with sexual concerns (desire discrepancy, low libido, infidelity, infertility related issues, etc.), as well as premarital counseling. "

"It is normal, on occasion, for everyone to experience some anxiety dealing with life. But lately those feelings have become overwhelming. Over time, it feels like you are anxious about everything, and nothing. The worry is starting to creep into every aspect of your life- work, family, relationships,... even going to get out of bed feels overwhelming some days! You are not going crazy, and you are not alone- anxiety is one of the most common reasons people reach out to for help. Therapy can help get things back to normal."

"We often seek therapy because ways we’ve learned to navigate the world aren’t working the way they used to or the way we’d like them to. Sometimes these strategies cause us pain and sometimes they cause pain to others. Our work involves uncovering strategies we’ve learned to survive in the world and understanding where they come from. Once we understand their origin and function, we can develop awareness of when they arise in the present and make choices to navigate differently. "

"If you're struggling with painful relationships, grief, trauma, depression, anxiety, self-harm, or addiction in one of its many forms, I've helped many clients in your situation rebuild their sense of stability and self-confidence. My clients describe me as a calming presence who provides empathy, humor, and skills that give results. Most of my clients come in with emotions that feel overwhelming and, with therapy support, find that they can master new strategies, reduce the frequency of therapy, and then "graduate" to sessions scheduled as needed.

I know how valuable it was for me to have someone to talk to that wouldn't judge me or make me feel guilty about being exactly where I was at the time. The idea of "you should be fine", or "you have no reason to be anxious or depressed" is hurtful and doesn't help."
