Often my clients have heard about the Gottman Method, seen the books, or read about the approach as reported in Blink, The Wall Street Journal, or other news or information sources.
As a marriage and family psychotherapist for over 30 years, I am an experienced, eclectic clinician whose passion is helping couples become masters of their relationship and individuals become their best selves. Clients find me to be warm, active, engaged, and creative. I often use humor, metaphor, and therapeutic experiment to enliven sessions, and utilize tools for practice to support clients between sessions. I work to have each session build on the last and reach the client’s goals in timely and powerful ways. I am committed to having each person feel known, understood, supported and appreciated throughout the therapeutic process.

Have you heard of the saying, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I change," by Dr Carl Rogers? In my experience, our suffering stems from a lack of self-acceptance and self-compassion. I have also realized that it is not until we are willing to take that first step of looking at ourselves honestly and kindly, that we start living life fully. If you are feeling stuck dealing with difficult situations or repeating unhealthy habits, I can help.

Perhaps you find yourself wondering "Why does everything feel so much harder for me than it does for other people?" Something feels "off" or "out of sync" in your relationships, in your energy level, your ability to focus or your motivation. You want to find more joy and meaning in life but feel like you need help developing the skills to make that hope a reality. You are willing to put in the work to create the life you desire but first you need a supportive, empathetic professional with interventions empirically proven to help improve your anxiety, grief, trauma, relationship or depression symptoms.

Are you living a life you love, or are you stuck in the familiar “one step forward, two steps back” dance? Life can be colorfully painful, beautifully complicated, and completely overwhelming—and none of us were given a how-to guide. We all experience complicated twists and unexpected turns that cause sadness, worry, anger, and destructive patterns with food, drugs, alcohol, and within our closest relationships. Our lives are too short to lose precious time to unhappiness, feeling hopeless, and being stuck in the same vicious cycles. Therapy can give you a personalized roadmap to help you design a life you love.
