I look forward to helping you feel better. I provide counseling support to individuals, couples, families & teens. I work collaboratively with you, using evidenced based methods to create lasting change. I will help you shift negative thought & emotion patterns to give you relief from persistent anxiety and depression. We can process, resolve and move on from trauma, relationships & painful family experiences in our work together. Let's secure a stable recovery from substance use by defending against relapse. In our sessions, you can make decisions from authentic values and build esteem/confidence personally & professionally.
I have a passion for helping couples craft deeply nourishing and caring relationships. I help couples learn effective communication and how to repair from past arguments so that good-will is restored. In our work together you can heal from infidelities, create satisfying physical intimacy and a shared vision that is personally meaningful for you both.
I will help your family get along better and weather the challenges that come with different developmental stages. We can work on communication, effective problem solving, limit setting and integrating different parenting styles. I help teens develop coping strategies to deal with stress, depression & anxiety and explore identity, autonomy and independence.
Do you feel anxious, sad/overwhelmed or just not enough? Do you feel frustrated that despite your efforts negative experiences persist? Are you worried that important relationships will not improve? Fortunately many people with similar feelings have, with the right support, found lasting relief. Witnessing many clients overcome significant challenges has taught me that with the right support, humans can access their innate capacity to heal. Greater well-being is possible. It is not necessary to struggle alone. Together we can relinquish old pain, lessen your anxiety or depression and help you navigate more fulfilling relationships.
I provide a safe space where we can work collaboratively toward your therapeutic goals. I will support you in accessing your innate capacity to heal and help you to uncover your wisdom, access your strengths and find solutions and resolutions to ongoing challenges as well as assist you in developing new capacities and skills. I look forward to assisting you!
A deeply loving and nourishing relationship is possible. In my work couples learn how to communicate/listen, to love each other in a meaningful way, to fight fair, heal from past ruptures and cultivate satisfying physical intimacy. Taking the first step to ask for help can be overwhelming but once you get on the pathway of healing it has it’s own momentum.
