After the fresh passion of a new or developing relationship cools, partners in marriages and committed relationships often find they experience a distancing from one another. Often this distancing results in anger and resentment toward partners. Problems which were once minor irritants now seem to be major issues which seem to always be a source of conflict and anger, or may be avoided entirely for fear of conflict. In counseling couples and families using the Gottman method , my passion is helping my clients transform their relationships and gain a new sense of optimism in their relational pursuits.

I have experience with interracial couples and have had great success in using the Gottman Method .
As a Marriage & Family Therapist/Counselor my goal is to provide families, couples and individuals with a safe environment where they can explore themselves and the possibility of change within their life and their relationships. Our lives are centered on relationships with others. Relationships are the building blocks of life; but, they can also be very debilitating. When those relationships become troubled, sometimes assistance from family and friends may not be enough to find balance within yourself or other relationships. Lucky for us, there are people who have dedicated their lives to helping others along their journey.

Depending on your particular needs and experiences, I draw from several different treatment models, including Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and client-centered therapy.
Our lives are stories and we all want them to be stories worth telling, that give us hope. Maybe you long to rewrite the story you are living. I believe everyone has the ability to change their story. Whether you are a couple, a family, or an individual, you can have hope. I desire to walk alongside you in your struggles and help you to forge a new path. Sometimes all it takes is a listening ear; sometimes it takes long, hard work. But you have the choice-to step out in courage and to start writing a new story.

Additionally, I provide couples counseling influenced by the Gottman Method .
Beginning therapy and sharing your most intimate struggles can be overwhelming. With this in mind, I create a space that is non-judgmental where we can explore what is no longer serving you. The change you desire is possible. I work with adults who are experiencing relationship issues, life transitions, anxiety or depression or low self worth.

The relationship between you and I is a key component of your treatment outcome. I believe that this therapeutic relationship is founded in a spirit of collaboration, an emotional bond and an agreement on goals and tasks. Two main characteristics of therapy are critical to the building of this therapeutic alliance: expertise and empathy. I am confident in my ability to help resolve any issues in a satisfying manner, prepared in both theory and practice, clear in my thoughts, ideas, and logical in the problem solving process. Of equal importance, I am accepting, understanding and genuinely interested in you and your needs.

Asking for help can be hard. Working through basic life issues can be hard too. But working through them with someone you trust can shed a little hope on life’s more difficult days. The amount of people seeking mental health services has been steadily increasing as the stigma surrounding asking for help slowly fades away. There is no shame in asking for help; it could change your life for the better.

What would you do tomorrow if you woke up free from that little voice of doubt, anxiety, and self-loathing? As a therapist, I love to explore the answer to that question with you. It’s my belief that we all are deserving of living into our greatest selves, but that this voice and its irrational nature prevent us from doing so. In an effort to change its narrative, we work together to explore, challenge, and reframe the negative core beliefs at the root of your suffering. It is the dual process of building self-awareness through empathetic exploration of blind-spots and the development of a strong therapeutic connection.

Counseling is a collaborative effort between therapist and client where we work together to help you reach your goals for emotional healing and psychological well-being. I believe that you have inside of you, what you need to heal, but during times of stress and pain, it's difficult to find. That's why therapy can be so beneficial - it can help you uncover your strengths again, or even perhaps help you see them for the first time, in an environment of complete support and acceptance.
