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.

Thanks for checking out my page. Chronic stress can play a huge role in someone's life. When stress becomes chronic, it can severely impact one's ability to function. Telling our story benefits us in many ways. It connects us from the past to our present and future. Instinctively we are automatically drawn to stories. When we can see ourselves reflected in them, they can teach us lessons in life.

I help women and couples heal and thrive. Periods of relationship challenges, grief and loss, identity transitions, and emotional stress can lead us to feel lost and alone. These times come for us all and can be an invitation to tend unhealed wounds, uncover intuition, strengthen relationships, and make brave and compassionate choices toward a life you love. I help women to transform inter-generational trauma into wholeness and vitality, stay grounded through fertility challenges and new motherhood, and establish healthy boundaries and nourishing relationships.

I believe that identity is an ongoing process; it is being continually developed through a person's interactions with other individuals, groups, culture and history. I enjoy helping people enhance their awareness, acceptance, and self-expression to move towards a stronger sense of self and more satisfying relationships with others.

Assisting individuals, couples, parents, teens, and families with the challenges of life is a privilege and a passion! Some of these challenges come from difficult and painful relationships we have with others but can even come in the relationship we have with ourselves! This can cause a loss of connection and an increase in anxiety, anger and depression. However, learning to manage and improve relationships can bring about significant satisfaction, confidence and joy. We are also often faced with the anxiety and fear of transitions and unexpected life changes. I am here to help you navigate these challenges!

My intention for you is to gently but dynamically create opportunities for growth and healing through flexible and creative alternatives to break through old patterns. I like to collaborate with motivated clients who are willing to work to change their lives. My goal is to help you discover your own solutions to your problems and concerns in an environment that is welcoming, empathetic and non-judgmental. I do that by carefully attending to your thoughts and feelings. Although I will offer specific "interventions" I believe that change occurs during therapy when there is strong motivation combined with the quality of our connection.

Struggling right now? I believe that real happiness is possible, but often the path is elusive. Life continually challenges us and forces us to grow, but sometimes growth and change can be painful. The good news is that you are not alone. There is help to get you to the other side. If it is a deep loss now or in the past, struggle in relationship, divorce, loss of children, a loss of connection, or a loss of meaning, I want you to know that there is hope. I will meet you where you are in your struggle, and we will find a path forward. Together we will solve the thing that confronts and confounds you, and grow peace in its place.
