I have studied in the Passionate Marriage, Quest for the Mythical Mate approaches (Schnarch; Bader & Pearson).
I specialize in effective couples therapy. Additionally, I work with adult individuals, and men with issues in the area of sexuality and intimacy. In working with couples I find it useful to focus on & support self-responsibility, communication (very much including listening - especially when listening is hard), expectations, self-awareness, and building skill in how to remain intimate when relating becomes difficult. Through the whole process I integrate a focus on kindness without abandoning or avoiding the truth. I also specialize in assisting and supporting men with building the skill and ability to feel and share their feelings in intimate relationships.

Hello, I am a Marriage and Family Therapist who supports my clients in discovering and achieving what they most want in life. As we begin to look more deeply at who we are, we can move toward a life that has increased balance and fulfillment. Many of us suffer in our relationships, careers and internal worlds due to a lack of awareness of the ways in which our past wounds impact current choices and ways of interacting with others. By taking a deeper look at these processes problematic belief systems can begin to change.

We all sometimes face a challenge in life that we just can't seem to resolve on our own. It might be a new chapter in your life that brings unexpected trials: adulthood, marriage, parenting, step-parenting, divorce, children leaving home, caring for your aging parents, the loss of a loved one, or facing your own mortality. It might be a conflict in a relationship with a loved one or in your professional life. Or it might be more of an internal struggle, whether recent or long-standing, that is giving rise to anxiety, depression, struggles with food or alcohol, or other self-defeating behaviors.

My training is primarily in healing couples by looking at the repeated patterns that get in the way of safe intimate connection. We all have responses that are were wonderfully helpful in the past but are less successful at getting what we want now. My aim is to help you let go of what is causing distress and develop ways of interacting that create happiness and health. I also work with individuals and provide EMDR if deemed appropriate. Mindfulness, to self regulate, is central to my work.

AUTHENTICITY, ALIVENESS, and CONNECTION are vital ingredients to living a healthy and meaningful life. Unfortunately these qualities do not always receive the proper attention needed to thrive. As a result, we develop coping strategies that often lead us to not getting what we want in life, leaving us feeling stuck, anxious, depressed, and hopeless. Therapy provides a unique opportunity to explore the unconscious patterns that keep us stuck. Therapy can help you make meaningful change to live the life you wish and to create the relationships you long for.
