If the relationship you are in is struggling, if you feel alone or as if you keep having the same fight, if you are struggling with some type of betrayal or anger  I can help.  In your first sessions we will discover the things that are holding your relationship back from being what you thought it could be when you first met. As we work together I will help you identify where new skills are needed and get you headed toward the relationship you have been longing for.

Our lives are filled with challenges, large and small. The best of these expose us to the power and vulnerability of our humanity. Facing these challenges can make for positive, at times life-affirming experiences. At other times, these challenges can be daunting or scary. The thought of confronting them leaves us stuck, anxious or fearful. In extreme cases, we may be rendered emotionally unstable - our psyches overwhelmed - unable to live in accordance with our typical, everyday lives. We question everything - our values, our purpose. Pushed to the edge of or beyond our limits, we feel small, alone, unlovable, unworthy.

I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in Somatic Psychotherapy. Somatic simply means "relating to the body" and in therapy this means that I have been uniquely trained to integrate the wisdom from our biology into treatment. Our bodies relate information that, should we choose to listen, can support our overall mental health. This way of working can have profound effects on anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions, and disordered eating. The clients that receive maximum benefit from my approach have an open mind about how the body influences thoughts, not just how thoughts influence the body.
