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.

My clients come to me for a variety of reasons and with a variety of questions like, “How did I get here?” “Why am I in this relationship?” “Why do I keep doing this?” or “Why can’t I move forward?” Often, they are dealing with multiple roles and high expectations of themselves. The issues facing each person are unique, but my clients come with earnest interest in making changes and they deserve my earnest investment in helping them with those changes. Our work is to understand as much as we can about you so that we can begin to address your questions, relieve some of the suffering, and help you live the life you want for yourself.

Therapy is the most important gift you give yourself, and I encourage you to choose a therapist who is a good match for your needs. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, relationship problems, work-related stress, and abusive relationships--just to name a few. My approach to treatment is primarily present focused, because I believe that unresolved issues from our past end up repeating themselves in our current relationships. Together we will explore the ways that your thoughts, feelings, and actions affect your mood and the way you experience the world.

I think counseling is always useful, even when there's nothing "wrong." We get a lot of chances to go, go, go but not a lot to slow down and reflect. Usually it takes some crisis of feeling or relationship to tell us it's time. I see those crises as opportunities, doorways to deeper understanding. And because we're not fixed individuals, they come and go as we change and grow.

Our early attachment relationships shape our view of self, and our understanding of how we are to be in relationships with others. Throughout our lives, our surrounding environment and life experiences continue to shape and influence these perceptions of who we are, and of our role in the universe. This becomes our unique personal narrative. Counseling provides an opportunity to explore these narratives, uncover hidden strengths, and find healing for our wounds.

As a counselor, I support individuals and couples in mindful awareness of their present circumstances and emotions while offering guidance towards growth. I believe that relational, psychological and spiritual growth happen when we are in the presence of people who gracefully hold our stories with us, and who gently direct us towards discovery.

I have had the privilege of witnessing people undergo the slow, extremely subtle and remarkable journey of healing and self-transformation. This process of psychological growth is astoundingly complex, multilayered, circular and even mysteriously numinous in its unfolding. My philosophy as a therapist is primarily on core transformation rather than merely symptom management and needless to say, I strongly believe in the centrality of the therapeutic relationship as a significant healing agent. Moving towards our wholeness necessitates the courage to first move into the wounded parts that we all have as members of the human species.

Finding time to process your feelings and repairing ruptures in your life and relationships may feel more stressful now. I want to help.

In session I use active listening, with a focus on compassion without judgement. I am also willing to ask direct questions, with honesty and sense of humor, which I find clients appreciate.

Although talk is helpful, the research shows that tapping into the right brain where emotions are housed is vital in transforming long-standing issues or limiting beliefs.
