"One of my areas of focus is infidelity. Even though the discovery of an affair can be devastating, it doesn't necessarily mean your marriage is over. Each affair has it's own reasons and meanings. But almost always, the avoidance of certain painful thoughts and feelings keep things from getting better. I often hear that I'm easy to open up to, even about things that might feel embarrassing or shameful to admit."

"Families looking to invest in their relationships with their children and teenagers will find themselves challenged and rewarded in our work together. Without careful focus and attention, it can be easy to inherit and perpetuate negative family dynamics. Taking a proactive approach to developing healthy communication styles will change how your family interacts for generations to come. Using a supportive and collaborative approach I look forward to creating a space that holds you in times of difficulty and challenges you when you need a little motivation. "

"You may think that big things have to change in your life in order for you to feel better and experience improvement. But I've come to believe that a key, gentle shift in perspective can bring about more positive change than many realize. That is a shift from taking a critical approach with yourself to taking a Kinder Approach. With this shift in how you approach yourself and your experiences comes greater self-awareness and feelings of confidence, hopefulness, empowerment and knowing your value. You can begin to see and feel new possibilities and choices for your life."
