Counseling is a collaborative process in which you should feel supported in navigating life's roadblocks, stressors, and transitions. The counseling relationship is a unique experience that propels individual flourishing by providing a safe and nurturing environment in which you can develop and practice skills to cultivate resiliency and personal growth. I believe in strength-based counseling, in which individual strengths and resources are developed and utilized to facilitate well-being and client collaboration to promote and achieve personal goals. The framework I utilize favors a cognitive approach with behavioral, mindfulness, and psychodynamic interventions to address specific areas of distress.

Relationships are full of challenges. At times you may feel like your “stuck” in the same communication cycle or emotional patterns with your partner. You might also feel like you have lost a sense of self and struggle with understanding why. You keep trying to improve aspects of your relationship and self, but nothing appears to work. Exploring your feelings, seeking life satisfaction, and reestablishing connection in intimate relationships, may seem stressful, confusing and at times overwhelming. I have a passion for collaborating with individuals and couples in navigating through various life challenges.

I welcome you to my practice site. If you are here at this site I make the assumption that you are secure enough to know that you deserve to feel better and have good relationships. With a comfortable match up of therapist and client, both of us work towards understanding the challenges you face, getting some clarity about what can be changed, and learning how to take action. Getting comfortable involves feeling listened to and understood by me and developing trust that I will be knowledgeable about your subject and I will be supportive and non judgmental in this therapeutic relationship.

You have a right to have a passionate and fulfilling relationship. You may not be sure if it’s their fault or yours but you do know that you miss feeling that spark. You feel frustrated that your needs go unmet or that you are constantly being nagged to meet your partners. The resentment is invading every area of your life together. Communication has broken down, you’re constantly irritated and snippy. You can’t remember the last time you had fun together, let alone had great sex. You know there has to be more to life than this. You want to feel connected, energized and satisfied. You dream of being desired and wanted again.
