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.

Life can be hard and many of us feel out of control or alone. I believe we are meant to have connections with others in order to create bonds that provide the framework of how we interpret the world around us as well as our own sense of self. When crisis and conflict occur, and these relationships are challenged, life can seem impossible-but this is where interpersonal growth can occur. No matter what the issue, finding the desire and courage to overcome these challenges is a personal and important decision. Choosing the therapist who is the right fit for you is the next step.

I believe that identity is an ongoing process; it is being continually developed through a person's interactions with other individuals, groups, culture and history. I enjoy helping people enhance their awareness, acceptance, and self-expression to move towards a stronger sense of self and more satisfying relationships with others.

It can be lonely and distressing to feel stuck in patterns of negative thinking, conflict, or disconnection from those most important to you.

I have experience helping people navigate a wide variety of challenges including relationship distress, infidelity, divorce, depression, anxiety, trauma, men’s issues, and life transitions.

I assist adults and couples with relationship difficulties, parenting, personal and professional life transitions, anxiety/depression, and loss. I use a combination of mindfulness, somatic and depth therapies to help clients develop greater self compassion and Love as the basis for meaningful living. When we feel misaligned with our core self, as a natural result of a life lived through the eyes of others, we can lose our sense of creative purpose. If connectedness to self and others lacks robustness, life can feel very unsatisfactory.

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents.

Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.
