About

I work with individuals, couples, and families, focusing on relationship building, conflict and anger management, and coping with grief and loss. I help couples create a safe and nurturing bond that allows them to become close again and heal. No matter the issue that brings a couple, individual, or family into my office, they will all be learning a new way to look at relationship and be introduced to a toolkit of skills essential to staying in conversation and connection.
As an Advanced Certified Imago Therapist, I help couples create connection and intimacy by using their conflicts to promote understanding, celebrate differences, and develop real partnership. I specialize in marriage counseling, marriage preparation, conflict management and resolution, interfaith and cross-cultural issues, and separation and divorce.
If you're experiencing challenges and struggles with yourself and or others I can help. I look forward to hearing from you and exploring working together
