I help people just like you repair and enrich connection--starting with the relationship to yourself. I'll earn your trust as we work together to process what has happened in the past, understand how it keeps you stuck in the present, and problem-solve what to do differently for a healthier future. I wrote The Marriage Counseling Workbook to help couples outside my office make meaningful changes in their partnership. It's available on Amazon! Relationships are hard work, but you don't have to struggle alone.

Life may be harder than you expected. You may feel stressed, depressed, or anxious. You may be struggling with a decision. Relationships with your family are complex. You may want to improve communication with your partner. Parenting is tough. You may have suffered a loss, & you don't know why it still affects you. You may have put a dream on hold while you attended to family matters, & now you wonder if you are still capable of fulfilling that dream. You may feel you have been given gifts, but you aren't using them to their full potential.

I believe the most important thing about therapy is empowering you so that you can make conscious choices about your life. My style is active and involved. Working collaboratively, I can help you define your goals and see what is causing your pain, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and problems in relationships. As a child, you learned ways of coping with your environment that were safe for you at the time. Those coping behaviors became habitual but, as an adult, no longer work for you and interfere with your happiness and your ability to function at your highest level.

I love helping individuals and couples achieve their goals and aspirations. I offer a caring, safe, and healing environment that allows clients the opportunity to explore, experience, work through problems, and create solutions that expand their potential for growth and wellness. As a proponent of integrative and holistic therapy that honors the mind-body connection and its impact on well-being, health, and happiness, I attend to the whole person, not just a set of symptoms or problems. I emphasize teaching skills that develop inner resources for successful coping in life. I use a variety of methods, but the method has to meet your needs.

It is my goal to help clients identify what is causing distress in their relationships and learn new ways of managing their difficulties. Together we will come up with realistic strategies to empower you to handle all of your relationships and overcome obstacles that are interfering with your family life.

Do you feel unsettled, out of balance, or like you don't have a voice? Are you at a crossroads in your life and not sure which path to take? In the safety of my office, I help clients find their balance, gain insight, make intentional changes, heal and grow - as individuals and in relationships. I have found that empowering clients with practical strategies to incorporate into their daily living while supporting clients in doing the deeper work of increasing their understanding of themselves and their partners (for clients in couples counseling), ultimately leads to the most meaningful changes.

I believe that counseling can help you THRIVE. With compassion, warmth, and humor, I help people who want to change unproductive or unhealthy patterns in their behavior, and in their important relationships. I help individuals desiring to become stronger and healthier - often while experiencing crises or change in their personal or professional lives. My clients often struggle with issues that include anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, co-dependency, substance abuse, work related issues, life transitions. One of my passions is working with adults - partners, parents, ACOA's - who live with anxiety & frustration over a loved one's alcoholism/addiction.

There are times when things are not going as well as we'd like in our family, social or work relationships. You may feel alone, depressed, anxious, or have conflict or discomfort with those you care about. In my psychotherapy practice I help couples, individuals & families restore their sense of well being and connection. People learn how to be more present and intentional about their interactions and decisions, in accordance with what is most important to them. Partners learn to be safely available to each other through a dialogue process that teaches more effective listening, deeper understanding and empathy.

I specialize in sex and internet pornography addiction. I work one-on-one with men and women, with those attracted to minors, and with couples. My primary treatment goal is to help the sexually addicted individual overcome the addiction and find inner healing. Additionally, I work to promote healing within badly damaged intimate relationships. Initially, I aim to help clients gain immediate relief from the feelings of overwhelm and distress that brought them to counseling to begin with. Subsequently, my primary treatment goal is to collaborate with clients to heal the deeper sources and causes of their suffering and addiction.

Pain is an unavoidable and a necessary part of life. But suffering -- especially prolonged, "punishing" suffering -- is not. So many people seeking therapy suffer from anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, and self-sabotaging behaviors. We use defenses to avoid our emotions. Ironically emotions aren't the SOURCE of pain but in fact are there to HELP us HEAL from the painful losses, hurts and challenges of life. You don't come to therapy to talk about your week. You come for relief from your suffering, for a chance to work through and find meaning in your pain and, just as with a broken bone, heal stronger and better!

What's wrong with this relationship? The same problems keep on repeating time after time. So what does a study of psychology reveal? A well-trained and experienced psychotherapist can help to shine a light into the dark unconscious places which shroud the mysteries. This helps to bring the issues into consciousness, and once there, allows you to work with them. This work involves change. There may be many underlying issues including: mental states of anxiety and depression, an addiction, anger, lack of trust, various stressors, poor communication, extended family interferences, and more.
