"Painful life experiences can be made more bearable when we can find meaning and purpose. Often what people want during those painful times is to feel better, and to have a sense of belonging. We are also fundamentally more equipped to endure and overcome life’s challenges than we may believe, and it is rewarding to see people transform and become better. Our struggles do not define us, but they can refine us. "

"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."

"I would describe my approach to therapy as 'person and relationship centered', collaborative in nature and striving to deeply attune to my client (s)' strengths and inner wisdom, to utilize as fuel for our process. My process tends to be depth oriented and draws from attachment based theories. From session to session, we will attend to your early and current life challenges, and your responses, with compassion and curiosity. In the same way, we will learn to listen to your un-lived parts of your self, so they can contribute to your longer lasting healing."
