I have experience working with families, individuals and adolescents struggling with issues related to depression, anxiety, personality disorders and sexuality, using emotionally focused family therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Keeping passion and connection in relationships while also thriving as individuals is a goal that many of us have. Balancing these aspects of life can be difficult, especially when life stressors, mental or emotional disorders, or trauma present themselves. My goal is to help clients achieve their goals of connection and personal growth, while challenging them to act on the best parts of themselves. I am passionate about working with couples struggling with intimacy and desire issues. My approach in working with couples centers on differentiation based therapies and encourages both individual and couple growth.

Life provides many challenges to maintaining a healthy, happy relationship. Our relationships can be a great source of strength, but they can also cause pain and heartache. Whether you currently feel committed to building a better relationship, ambivalent about the future of your relationship, or fear that your relationship is on the brink of collapse--therapy can often help. Through looking at yourself, your partner, and your relationship in new ways, I help couples gain confidence and clarity about the next steps for their relationship and I help couples build satisfying relationships that last and are worth wanting.

Finding love is hard, and then when you do find love it is a whole different kind of hard to maintain that relationship. You may have noticed that your relationship feels harder than it used to, you feel disconnected from your partner, or are having more feelings of anger and resentment. While you are not alone in these struggles or feelings, you also do not have to continue to feel that way. Seeking help for your relationship can help you rediscover those initial “sparks” and even help you develop a deeper connection. Growth and change are hard and often scary, but the results are always worth it.

Relationships are incredibly rewarding but often challenge us in more ways than expected. Strong relationships are the foundation for a thriving life but for a variety of reasons, life gets in the way of thriving. Maybe you are looking for your relationship to thrive again or maybe you feel your problem is much bigger. No matter the issue, I believe therapy can help. My goal is for couples to look at themselves, their partner and their relationship in a new light. This creates the potential to have passionate and connected relationships while also growing as individuals.

I think we are all wired for and worthy of love and connection. Whether that is connection to ourselves or to others, I believe the desire to belong lives inside each of us. That doesn’t mean it’s easy, though. There can be so many places where shame, doubt, old wounds, and miscommunication disorient and disconnect us. As a therapist, I consider it a great privilege to be invited into your world and to get to partner with you as we collaboratively work through some of the things that might be keeping you stuck.

I love collaboratively working with a variety of clients but specialize in helping couples and individual adults. My hope is to help you develop into the person you desire to be rather than waiting for that moment to come to you. I aim to help partners who feel stuck or are feeling hurt to get unstuck and mend that pain and know that being in therapy can be hard work. Further, I enjoy working with motivated clients who want to know and share themselves more deeply and are willing to take risks to stretch themselves for personal growth.

I have been in practice for 30 years as a clinical psychologist. I provide a safe and supportive environment for my clients. I use mindfulness techniques for therapy in addition to a compassionate presence. These approaches include mindfulness to resolving situational depression, teaching clients to overcome overwhelming emotional situations, relaxation techniques to quiet your mind and body, and therapy to assist each client to function each day with calmness and clarity. I am a very proactive therapist, allowing individuals to explore their own thoughts, feelings, behavior patterns, and develop an action plan that best suits their personal growth.

Sex Therapy
Sex therapists in Independence offer help with sexual concerns by educating, using talk therapy, offering homework exercises and resources for further exploration to either individuals or couples. Sex therapy helps couples talk about sex with each other. A sex therapist feels comfortable talking about sex and is aware of how anxious you might feel talking about this intimate subject with each other and with a near-stranger. They will help set you at ease and guide you into talking about sex. While sex therapists can help with many problems, low sexual desire and frequency disagreements between partners are two of the most frequent concerns they address.
