The ideal setting for therapy is a caring environment that allows genuine sharing and exploration along with the active participation of the therapist. This way, the patient has the opportunity to explore current life difficulties and examine them in a new perspective. Sometimes it is helpful to look back at early life relationships and see how they influence present day feelings, thoughts, and actions. With couples I am able to enhance communication skills by working to resolve the push-pull that creates distance and conflict, calmly helping my patients face challenges with compassion and a nurturing sense of humor.

Important transitions in life often present difficulties where couples desire help making decisions - such as in living together, getting married, experiencing the birth of a child, or changing locations or jobs. Life is filled with stressors, and having a supporting partner that is your best friend makes everything more enjoyable.

I specialize in working with many creative people who manage demanding work hours and changing schedules.
