With an individualized, collaborative, compassionate, and deeply respectful approach, from a foundation of humanistic psychotherapy, and with special attention to your goals and the therapy relationship, we will work toward the realization of your best possibilities.
I see people who are seeking a kind of freedom - call it "emotional freedom" - from the habits, feelings, thoughts and memories that frustrate, discourage and distress. My work is in the service of helping you to take in, engage with, and appreciate more fully the life inside of and around you. If you yearn to move from a narrow to a more expansive place, from stagnation and repetition to movement and flow, from a sense of futility and oppressiveness to one of vitality and hope, then I am eager to meet you there.

I work with the relationships, couples facing divorce, affairs, trauma, etc.
I have had many years of experience working with adolescents, children, adults, and their families in both facilities as well as in homes. Through this experience, I have built my practice of clinicians who really are able to connect and listen to our clients. My work with relationships, couples and families has led me to my current practice. Meeting people where they are is so important. Helping them find their strengths and supports within their life, working on goals that are hopeful and achieveable, and finally helping them find their purpose in life, their relationships, and within themselves is the ultimate goal of therapy

I've worked with individuals from many walks of life throughout my years of practice most of whom have experienced trauma and struggle with mood instability, anxiety, personality disorders, and/or attachment and relationship disruption. Most of my clients are some combination of neurodivergent, queer, trans, non-monogamous, and/or kinky. My practice is driven by a deeply held belief in the power of relationships to cultivate positive change and healing. This begins with the therapeutic relationship which I give ongoing attention and priority to as maintaining the therapeutic alliance is essential for successful treatment.

The typical clients I work with are like you and me, usually have successful careers, have a faith orientation, although not always, and have a tremendous longing to find, repair, or revitalize something gone wrong in themselves or in relationship with those closest. They are individuals and couples who are hurting at their core, who want more than just a quick fix, a few techniques, or merely a listening ear. They want answers, real, deep, transforming answers. They realize deep down that it is probably going to take longer than they want or expect. But, they are longing and willing to do whatever it takes to get to a better place

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
