I believe that therapy is a partnership. Together, we can explore the issues that are concerning you and the things you would like to change in your life. Through therapy we can identify and remove old beliefs, patterns and fears that get in the way of fully enjoying life. We can work in a variety of ways, from very deep work that aims to heal childhood trauma, to cognitive-behavioral techniques which address specific, practical problems. My approach is relaxed, supportive, holistic, empowering and nonjudgmental. I work with a range of issues: addictions, depression, anxiety, relationship and family difficulties and trauma.

I appreciate a collaborative approach to help identify your needs and goals. I utilize an integration of evidence-based treatment, process therapy, and a mindfulness framework. I also take time to understand and integrate what makes each person unique, such as our mood, temperament, family system, environment, culture, and biology. Making decisions, that are congruent with your values, is central.

Hello & welcome! Life is interesting. It can be complicated and overwhelming. But I believe that above all, it remains a beautiful gift, as each of us have a right to become our most insightful, confident, and authentic selves. Throughout life, we may have developed defenses or created thought and behavior patterns designed to help us survive, obtain love, or have certain needs met. For children, teens, and adults alike, worries and sadness can emerge, and difficulties can arise from disconnecting from one’s true self, one's family, one’s social circle, one’s gifts, and one’s purpose.

Attention...what does it take to get our attention? Usually, it's something unfamiliar. I work with individuals who experience a "symptom," a grief, a depression, an anxiety, a life-threatening illness, a crisis in an important relationship; a time when you are asked to pause, to pay attention to your self and bring curiosity to your life. A symptom is an invitation to look at the story of your life and visit where you have felt alone and where you need to come home to yourself in order to make this issue transform and experience more fulfillment.

Life inevitably involves struggle. The goal of therapy is to understand the source of your current struggles in order to live more fully and effectively. In my experience, life difficulties are either long standing or acute. The enduring difficulties are often the result of underlying patterns that result in feeling stuck, anxious or depressed. These patterns may manifest in relationship problems, parenting difficulties or low self esteem. Acute situations, such as death or divorce, take time to process and can trigger earlier losses. In either situation, the wish to function and feel better is what motivates us to seek therapy.

Why is it that the most important relationship in our lives is often the one that gets the least attention? Self-care is so essential, and yet many of us leave it for last or skip it all together. Many of us in today’s society feel enormous pressure to do and have it all, often at the expense of our happiness and mental health. The resulting anxiety, stress, and depression can be difficult to manage on your own. In my practice, I focus on the therapeutic relationship and interpersonal connection, as I believe that trust and an open dialogue are the first steps in achieving meaningful change.

Marriage Counseling Therapists

How does marriage counseling work?

Marriage counseling works by teaching couples concrete skills to communicate with one another and solve disagreements in healthy ways. A trained mental health professional works with both members of a couple to explore difficulties the couple may be having and helps them develop skills to address these matters. Couples who don’t have any difficulties but want to prepare for marriage may develop skills for the future.

How long does marriage counseling typically last?

Marriage counseling is a short-term form of therapy; the process may last between four and eight sessions. Other forms of relationship guidance from mental health professionals, such as couples therapy, are longer lasting, may focus on the past rather than just the present, and are tailored to the individual couple and their emotions, history, and patterns in the relationship. Couples therapy often lasts for 12 weeks or longer.

Is marriage counseling effective?

Marriage counseling helps many couples develop relationship skills that may not have been acquired or tested in a relationship; partners may be better able to communicate and address conflict following counseling. However, there are many different forms of marriage counseling, and this form of counseling does not have as strong an evidence base as other modalities such as couples therapy.

Is marriage counseling effective if only one partner wants to go?

Yes, marriage counseling can still be effective if one partner convinces the other to engage in the process. Of course, whether counseling is effective depends on the couple’s commitment to work on their relationship; however, the short-term, skills-based nature of marriage counseling makes it a relatively easy “ask” of a partner, and the hesitant individual may see its value once counseling begins.
