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 work is guided by the vision of the developing person in the context of his or her interpersonal relationships. I believe that counseling is most effective when both client and counselor have the same well-defined goals, and that these goals are explicitly stated. I hold the following assumptions: 1) change is inevitable 2) collaboration is necessary 3) clients possess inherent strengths 4) change is both reflective and action-based 5) there are many ways to view problems 6)therapy is best when it is episodic. I work closely with Dr. Babe and Wendy Wan, PMHNP for clients requiring medications.

Examining beliefs and patterns frees you up to create new possibilities, make new choices, and become more skillful in reflecting your best interests and intentions.

When does wanting something more become an issue? When our normal desire for change has no recognized solutions. When our wants lead to self-rejection or frustration that keep those we care about at arms-length. When we disengage to avoid expressing a need, but get accused of not caring. We prepare for arguments before entering the room and the script plays out as expected, but it's not what we want. These are common struggles without generic answers. Relationship dynamics are as unique as the individuals who live them, which is why change requires specific approaches addressing unique issues.

If you are an early adult or someone who must function at a high level under pressure, I would like to work with you. Athletes, college or graduate students, and performance intensive professionals - you expect a lot out of yourself and you are your own worst critic. While your strengths have brought you far, you may be experiencing some of the problems that often arise when high expectations meet high pressure - anxiety, perfectionism, loss of motivation, fear of failure, and depression. It is difficult to ask for help, especially when you are used to solving problems on your own.

I work with clients on a short-term model, identifying strengths and enhancing coping skills. I also do long-term insight-oriented work; identifying patterns of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors which reflect unconscious conflict and create barriers in relationships with oneself and others. Symptoms of anxiety and depression are often what prompt people to enter therapy. Some people want to learn tools and behaviors to alleviate symptomology; while others continue with therapy, after symptom reduction, and explore internal themes from their family-of-origin and how they are impacting their relationships today. I believe change occurs through the therapeutic relationship.
