We all get stuck sometimes; and we suffer. Life often feels messy and chaotic, and in the midst of "the daily grind" we experience ourselves as unbalanced, fragmented, and "all over the place." Life is perpetually full of transition and change; and our habituated ways of being in the world are often at odds with the ebb and flow of life's events, and we experience stress, conflict and pain. Despite our resources, strategies and efforts to cope with challenges, we often get stuck; and end up feeling dissatisfied with ourselves, disenchanted with others, and disconnected from life, vitality, joy.

Would you like to free yourself from patterns that lead to stress, conflict, and/or withdrawal from life? Are feeling challenged in dealing with anger, fear, and/or sadness? Are you dissatisfied with life and do not know why? Having the courage to admit that things are not going well is the first step to changing them. My mindfulness-based approach supports you in being less identified with habitual ways of thinking and feeling that keep you stuck in patterns that no longer work. I have helped many clients learn to be less reactive and more compassionate with themselves and others.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Using the Gottman Method techniques I help couples move away from what Gottman refers to as the four Horseman of the Apocalypse (Criticism, Contempt, Defensiveness and Stonewalling). Gottman's research describes these four communication styles as the greatest predictors of divorce. The goals of Gottman Method Couples Therapy are to disarm conflicting verbal communication; increase intimacy, respect, and affection; remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy; and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship.

Mid-life can be deeply rewarding, but it can also feel like a never-ending pile of stress. It's not surprising that you’re feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders. You may be navigating complex relationships, career and caregiving responsibilities, finances, and health issues, not to mention a pandemic or the multitude of systemic oppressive forces alive in our country today! On top of it all, you may notice that your tools for managing stress (alcohol, food, pushing yourself to the max) aren’t really cutting it anymore and may even be causing harm. The pressure is overwhelming, and you're not sure how to handle it all.
