I specialize in working with couples dealing with conflict in communication, ongoing disagreements and extra-marital affairs or infidelity. In a collaborative environment, I help couples identify what went wrong and what issues continue to create the chaos, pain, and gridlock in the relationship. Incorporating proven research approaches, such as Gottman Method of Couples Therapy and Emotional Focused Couples Therapy, I work with couples to create a relationship that is built on admiration, intimacy, improved communication skills and effective problem-solving.

Additionally, I provide direct and interactive therapy for individuals to safely identify life challenges that interfere with happiness and achievement of personal and interpersonal goals. I work in a therapeutic manner that is appropriate to individual needs in order to create a sense of self-acceptance, emotional wellness, and empowerment.

I offer short and long term models of therapy to address relational issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, low self-esteem, and assertiveness training. I invite you to call to begin the passage to a more enriching and fulfilling quality of life and relationships.
