"It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness." This famous Eleanor Roosevelt quote can be applied to many situations. When we get stuck -- in a rut at work, in a stormy relationship, in a lukewarm marriage, with our children -- we suffer but are often pulled to focus on the problem rather than finding a solution. Sometimes, we're not aware of what the actual issue is. All we can do is try to avoid the pain, skirt problems, even pretend we are fine. We are blocked by fear -- another word for anxiety. Together, we can walk slowly through that fear, and find that light.

Trauma can make you feel constantly on guard and disrupt your ability to live life to its fullest. I work with clients presenting with a range of traumas from complex trauma resulting from childhood abuse to combat-related trauma. My trauma-informed treatment approach integrates the unique aspects of your culture and values and explores how societal values influence your presenting problem/s. Untreated trauma can influence the ability to fully grow in your relationship with others. My ultimate goal is to help you regain control of your life where you feel empowered to make decisions that benefit you and those important to you.

I tend to be an open book in therapy as I believe my own authenticity is crucial for our relationship to be helpful for you.
Relationships can be hard sometimes! What stinks more is that most of us don’t really know what we are doing in them. We try to make things better, but that sometimes has the opposite effect we want it to. Maybe certain topics (sex and money to name my favorite two!) make you feel sick to your stomach. If you get nothing else from reading this, I want you to know you aren’t alone in this and I’m proud of you for looking for help! While many of us struggle with relationship dynamics at some point, occasionally you just need extra help. By addressing unspoken emotions, you can create a new life with your partner and yourself.

"Everyone faces struggles at some point in life, and it is courage which allows us to seek help during those times. Common issues such as depression, anxiety, relational conflict, behavioral and emotional problems, and difficulty adjusting to life transitions can all be very oppressive, yet we can often work toward more helpful ways to manage these challenges.

As an experienced sex and relationship therapist, I believe that we can connect deeply in our sexuality and relationships.
You feel like even though you're speaking the same language, your partner is just not understanding what you're saying. You've been experiencing sexual issues recently or maybe even for quite some time. It's frustrating, isolating, infuriating and exhausting. You’re fed up with having the same conversation over and over and getting nowhere. It may even be difficult to remember a time when things didn’t feel this way. But now, you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to break the pattern and communicate better. You're ready for a more fulfilled sex life. And most of all, you’re ready to feel more connected in your relationship!

Working through challenges can be a difficult process, one in which people are sometimes hesitant to do. Often people feel like in order to go to a counselor, they must be at their lowest point. When truthfully, counseling is just a tool that can help people understand how to be the best version of themselves. Whether that’s focusing on how you affect those around you or developing ways to build your confidence, counseling is designed to meet you where you are and help address the obstacles that are holding you back.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
