Asking for help demonstrates bravery and is an action step toward a new experience in life. I have been helping individuals recover from addiction for over twenty years. Now, I assist clients to grow and heal from abuse , neglect, traumas and move through rough patches in life. I recognize the importance of this work, but believe curiosity and laughter can be part of the therapeutic process as well as tears, grief and anger. Transformation and change are often possible and I am honored to witness this daily.

Do you feel disconnected from your partner? Does it feel like you are often walking on egg shells when he/she is around? Are things starting to feel hopeless? My primary specialty is couple's therapy. I am committed to working with couples and helping them rediscover a safe and secure bond. This is a goal worth striving for: research has shown that secure connections with our romantic partners help us feel happier and more optimistic, reduces depression, and increases the quality of our lives.

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
