I'm certain that any unwanted behavior can be unlocked by recognizing the purpose or wanted outcome for said behavior and my passion is helping you identify that unmet need and make healthy changes. I enjoy working with clients that are willing to do things outside of the therapeutic office setting such as writing, art, and/or practicing skills learned, and then reporting back in session the helpfulness of each strategy."

"After the fresh passion of a new or developing relationship cools, partners in marriages and committed relationships often find they experience a distancing from one another. Too often this distancing can result in anger and resentment toward their partners. Problems which were once minor irritants unworthy of discussion now seem to be major issues which seem to always be a source of conflict and anger, or may be avoided entirely for fear of conflict. As a therapist using the Gottman method, my passion is helping couples and families transform their relationships and gain a new sense of optimism in their relational pursuits."

"If you were told you did not matter growing up, through actions or words, this will have an impact on your ability to recognize your worth. Growing up in a home with alcohol abuse, homophobia, emotional abuse, or excessive criticism can lead to feelings of worthlessness, shame, and self hatred. You may seek validation from others and fear their disapproval. This often leads to putting others needs before your own. Not understanding your worth, you may struggle following your dreams or have a career where you feel overworked and under valued. You deserve the confidence to feel in control in your life. "
