I have more than 15 years of experience as a therapist, and use a compassionate, understanding approach, balanced with evidence-based practice skills of EMDR, Gottman Couples therapy, and DBT.
Do you feel distracted and overwhelmed? Are you struggling in your relationships, and having a hard time connecting with others? Are you wanting to be able to be kind to yourself and those around you? I help people learn what is getting in the way of living the life they want, and how to grow their strengths and address challenges to build healthy, happy, and fulfilling relationships. We will focus on how the past might be impacting our current functioning and ways to manage that interaction. We will build insight into reasons for thoughts and feelings, and work on repairing concerns that are in the way of you reaching your goals.

If you are reading this, I am assuming that you want something in your life to change. Perhaps your stomach is in knots because of relationship issues, or stress at work. You might be worried about your children, even if they are adults. Someone very significant to you, might be missing from your life. Maybe you feel lonely, useless, unappreciated, anxious, unloved, or uneasy for a multitude of reasons. Perhaps its Covid-19, the economy and political divisiveness that is causing anxiety. You are searching for someone to help you, someone you can trust, to nudge you and and maybe significant others, in the "right direction".

My role will never be to tell you what to do; rather we will work together to find the perfect solution for you. I accept clients from all backgrounds, identities, and cultures. I have a warm welcome for those of the LGBTQ+ community along with open relationship structures/polyamory. Areas of most experience include anxiety, depression, OCD, addiction (harm reduction model, preferably). No area or challenge is too small or seemingly too insignificant in which to engage in therapy. Clients will be successful when they come with an open mind, a willingness to be vulnerable, while also being provided their own pace and comfort.

Thankfully, I have some success helping committed couples return from the brink of very destructive relationship patterns using the insights of both attachment and family systems theories.
I enjoy working with clients who come to me in crisis with some awareness that their existing coping resources and skills have been overwhelmed to the point they need some help to grow through the situation. Though it typically begins concretely with stress and conflict management, this work often deepens into fruitful reexamination of personal values, family dynamics, problematic relationship patterns, and existential or spiritual themes. I see individual problems as often having been forged in the crucible of one's family of origin, which has often severely limited one's ability to respond well to all of life's demands.

It's extremely important to me that you feel heard, respected, and valued in our therapeutic relationship.
When we experience things like anxiety, depression, or a traumatic event, these things do tend to weigh us down and keep us from living the life we truly want. Although we want to see ourselves at our best, we may be ignoring the issues that are keeping us from that reality altogether. Therapy helps us work through those subconscious road blocks that are affecting us even in the most subtle ways. By using different modalities such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy or Trauma-Focused therapy, I collaborate with clients and couples by working through the blind spots of our mind together.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
