Through my experience, training, and research I have joined the school of thought that addictive and compulsive behaviors are often the result of unaddressed trauma, that these beahviors often manifests in ways beyond drug and alcohol use, and that it is a natural human tendency to relieve emotional pain and suffering by attaching to vices outside of ourselves. Although they may fill a void and assist to avoid discomfort temporarily, they often create unfavorable consequences, often derailing us from our life goals and values.

People come to see me because they are experiencing a life transition, struggling with partnership/ relationships, frustrated with self-defeating patterns that they have not been able to change, having a hard time coping with their emotions and circumstances, needing support navigating conflict, creating boundaries or improving relationship dynamics. I work to create a warm, safe environment where deep personal issues can be explored. I believe that we are shaped by our relationships and life experiences. I am often described as warm, intuitive and an active listener who promotes a confident, safe atmosphere for collaborative work.

We humans are wired for contact and connection. Yet sometimes we don't know how to develop the needed connections; relationship building and managing one’s life effectively can thus be both terrifying and exhilarating . Lack of healthy support and resultant traumas leave us depressed, anxious, isolated, or insecure, leading to addictions, obsessions and compulsions, poor communication, relationship difficulties, or general dis-ease in one’s life. Yet healing is possible, and finding a therapist with whom you resonate is crucial.

For the past 15 years I've worked exclusively assisting couples in understanding and correcting missteps in their marriage or primary relationship - and helping them to discover how to establish rich, fulfilling, and solid connections and communication. If your marriage isn't feeling as stable as you'd like, you're likely experiencing some heartache, worry, or some resentment. Having intense emotions in this situation is certainly normal, but they also make effective communication even more difficult... right when it's most needed. Using the expertise of a couples counselor in these times can be a very worthwhile investment.

Do you feel like you are fraying at the seams and barely keeping it together? Tired of well-meaning family and friends saying things that make you feel worse? When life throws curve balls--unexpected change, disappointment, death, divorce--we experience a range of complex feelings. Socially we have learned to avoid, cover up, manage, and minimize instead of acquiring the tools for effectively moving through the hard stuff of life--grieving well and healing. It's a heavy, lonely burden to carry and can impact your health, relationships, mood, energy, and passion. Reclaiming life is possible!
