I am certified in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, a model based on the world renown research of John Gottman.
I specialize in helping couples keep their commitments to lifelong marriage or partnership wherever possible-- restoring friendships, managing conflict, healing relationship hurts and traumas, supporting each other's life dreams, and reconnecting again over what it means to do life together. My practice includes helping couples prepare for marriage, providing consultation for those with relationship questions and concerns, and providing therapy for couples in distress. I have increasingly embraced the belief that connection with others is what makes life meaningful and that relationships are worth the effort. My training encompasses several therapy approaches.

I specialize in treating couples/families using the Gottman Method (Level 2), Emotion Focused Therapy, and Family Systems.
Everyone faces challenges in life. Seeking help for yourself, your child or relationship when experiencing difficulty is a strength which leads to creating a more fulfilling, healthy & happy life. With 18+ years' experience, I have helped many to overcome anxiety, trauma, depression, anger, loss, etc. I have helped couples restore intimacy/connection and learn ways to communicate. Children/teens learn ways to cope and manage social/school stress. Parents learn ways to connect, manage behaviors and heal their relationships with their children. Families heal from loss, life's transitions, substance abuse, divorce, mental illness.

I am well-versed in multiple modalities, pulling from CBT, ACT, DBT, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic, Client-Centered, Solution-focused and The Gottman Method .
Accepting Clients. My approach to therapy is "come as you are and let's get down to work” in an environment of acceptance, compassion, and kindness. I am able to get to the heart of complex problems, gently and creatively challenging old patterns of thought and behavior to collaboratively find simple solutions my clients can begin implementing that day. With nearly 30 years’ diverse experience spanning the fields of social work/mental health care, law enforcement, and psychotherapy, I understand the vital importance of a healthy outlook on life, including work/life balance, healing from trauma, and maintaining healthy relationships.

I work primarily with adolescents (ages 10-25), marriages, and men's issues. I currently supervise a team of therapists through Unbroken Family Counseling. I work within this team and, when necessary, work with schools, psychiatrists, and other community resources to help my clients. My ideal client is a teen who doesn't think he/she needs counseling, a marriage that is on the rocks, or a guy dealing with guy stuff (guys know what I'm talking about). If I cant help you I can help find someone who can.

Gottman Method Therapists
The Gottman Method For Making Relationships Work shows that to make a relationship last, couples must become better friends, learn to manage conflict, and create ways to support each other's hopes for the future. Drs. John and Julie Gottman have shown how couples can accomplish this by paying attention to what they call the Sound Relationship House, or the seven components of healthy relationships.
