—I have limited availability at this time.— At different times in our lives, we may find ourselves challenged or feeling overwhelmed by life's demands, our relationships, our careers, our health, or transitions. It is during these challenges, that a trusting relationship with a counselor can give the dynamic support, to sort through our thinking, feeling, and patterns of behavior. Through this mindful work we may begin to see ourselves and our options in a new way. This offers the opportunity to grow and regain balance in our lives creating new strategies for a balanced life and conscious relationships.

I work to build a relationship of safety, respect, and honesty. Regardless of what brings you into therapy, I want you to feel assured that you will be met with compassion as we navigate the concerns in your life.

Over the years I see that I am very well-suited to work with clients who are experiencing a major life transition. These include changes in relationship status, employment, health, sexual/ gender identity, as well as retirement/ aging concerns. While transitions can bring new opportunities, such changes also come with an array of losses, endings and goodbyes. Transitions can generate challenging symptoms, including a sense of grieving, starting over and/or confronting the unknown. Life can lead one to a place where it pushes you to explore your personality and life choices, and make new sense of your life experiences.

I believe it is an immense privilege to be welcomed into a person’s life through the means of counseling. I respect that each person is the expert of their life and experiences and therefore I approach the therapeutic relationship as a collaborative process. My goal is to create a safe space, free of judgement, to come along side my clients-individuals, youth, young adults, couples and families- as they work towards their desired outcomes. I have special interest and experience in working with the adoption and foster care triad, family and couple counseling, and pre-marital counseling.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS - TELEHEALTH AVAILABLE. My approach has been described as more practical and holistic as I believe we do our best given the circumstances. I believe we are our own experts but we sometimes need some extra support to get through difficult times or unstick ourselves emotionally. For me, therapy is a collaborative process that unfolds via conversation. I go where you go and ask lots of questions along the way. My areas of interest include anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, life transitions, pain management, brain functioning, trauma, and other negative life experiences.

In Brene Brown words, "Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we will ever do." This statement reflects my work's philosophy. The client/therapist relationship has the potential to bring about real change through revealing relational patterns that have developed through life's experiences. I heavily rely on the therapeutic relationship that we will develop together to highlight these patterns in order to bring you more happiness, a sense of calmness and to help open yourself to the possibilities in your life. I honor your strength in taking this important step in realizing your full potential.

It is often helpful to explore the connections between one's early relationships and one's current relationships, including the therapeutic relationship .
I believe that each person is unique and should be treated with respect, acceptance, and honesty. My theoretical approach is called Theoretical Integrationism, which simply means that I base therapy on several different models that I believe to be the most accurate and helpful. Specifically, I hold to Person-Centered, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Psychodynamic approaches. As a person-centered therapist, I work to help people accept themselves as the unique, valuable persons they are. I see my role as collaborative, working alongside my clients to help them become more satisfied with their selves and with their lives.

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.
