I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors.

**My practice is currently full and I cannot offer a waiting list at this time. I anticipate openings in late summer/fall 2021.** During a therapy session, I am an active participant in the process, bringing genuine presence, empathy, and validation. As my client, I view you as the expert of your own experience. My role is collaborator in the therapy process, listening for themes and patterns, asking questions to encourage self-exploration, and (with curiosity, respect, and perhaps some humor) challenging unhelpful or "stuck" patterns.

All families experience transitions, and even positive change can cause stress. I employ an eclectic approach with a strong emphasis on attachment, structural, and solution-focused family therapies. I work with young children and their caregivers to form secure attachments early on. This leads to more effective communication and problem solving patterns and a higher level of resilience down the road. My work tends to be short term and builds on the existing strengths of your family. My work with couples is attachment informed as we look at past and current relationships to elucidate our most fulfilling ways of connecting.

Fast heartbeat, stomach in knots--worry has become your constant companion. Right now, everything feels as if it's covered in a veil of "what-ifs". The hopelessness and depression are growing. In the midst of it all, it can seem as if there's no way out--that these emotions will last forever. You're so tired of life feeling dreary, tiresome, and hopeless. The anxiety and sadness have gone on far too long, and it's a lonely, isolating place to be. You can't help but wonder "How long can I go on this way?!" There is hope. Therapy can help anyone--including you! Armed with the right tools, you can overcome the fear and sadness.

Life is too short to feel so stuck. I believe that anyone can make change in life when they are ready. I have extensive experience as a therapist and my clients often report feeling better after just a few sessions. I believe that through approaching change in a holistic manner, addressing both mind and body in an atmosphere of trust and collaboration healing can occur. It takes courage to seek counseling and ask for help. I am active, engaged, and supportive in my work with clients.

You are happy and successful, the one people come to for help, the couple others admire, the fixer. What no one knows is that on the inside, behind closed doors, you feel like a mess. Maybe you even worry you're permanently damaged or that your relationship has experienced too much pain and resentment to recover. The isolation of keeping it together for the world makes the exhaustion, worry, and unhappiness even heavier. You are not alone and you are not doomed to this place forever. You can be ok, you can feel happier, your relationship can be fulfilling again.

You've been suffering on your own for far too long, pushing away the pain until it feels like you have nothing left. You're exhausted. You feel alone but you put on a mask, smiling on the outside while you're in so much pain inside. Because you pull it together for the people around you, nobody realizes what is going on. You've lost interest in everything. You can't concentrate. Sometimes you hate yourself and wonder if you deserve to feel good ever again. You feel weak and you are so tired of this pain. It's time for a change.

As a therapist, I wish to honor the struggle bringing you to therapy while holding the possibility for real, long lasting transformation. I see the heart of therapy being the connection we create to support the unfolding of your life. My intention is to create a space where you feel safe and capable of holding your experience in new ways. Where you can cultivate greater acceptance, curiosity and appreciation for yourself and your life. From this space of self-acceptance, you will begin to explore the ways in which your natural expression has been distorted. In essence, you will recognize and work with the blocks limiting your life.
