You innocently criticize how your partner loaded the dishwasher; soon you’re both on the kitchen floor on the verge of tears, rehashing an argument for the 12th time this month. You’re constantly sharing your needs but it's like talking to a brick wall. Your partner feels the same, and you don’t understand why you can't "get" each other.  Evenings are spent on opposite ends of the couch staring at your phones, because date night sounds exhausting. You miss feeling in-sync and in love, when the best part of your day was debriefing juicy office drama over a glass of wine. You'd do anything to get back there, but it feels impossible.

I approach counseling from a cognitive behavioral perspective, meaning that I believe that our thoughts produce our feelings and our feelings produce our behaviors. However, I also use EMDR and Internal Family Systems in combination with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to give my clients a range of avenues to find their healing. I try to make every session practical and productive. I have also written a book, "Forgive and Live", which I use in group therapy and has recently been re-written as a video series.

Not accepting clients at this time. Have you been struggling with unsettling feelings in your personal relationship and you can’t seem to figure out how to make things any different? I believe we all get into a relationship to feel connected to someone and to be able to grow and share our lives with another human. When we don’t connect, we feel uncomfortable. Whether it’s because of communication issues, different schedules, differences in parenting, or ways of managing stress; if our partner doesn’t understand us, we feel alone. My role as therapist is to help you identify what you want different in your life.

When clients have a session with me, I want them to feel comfortable sharing their deepest darkest fears because those are often the very things that keep us in a cycle of mental and emotional turmoil. Just being able to say how you truly feel- out loud to someone who is really listening, can be so freeing for a person. As a therapist, I know that it’s not enough to just talk about it though. It’s not enough to unload your emotional baggage onto others and then you magically feel better. If you're willing to do the work, then I'm willing to support you in your healing journey.

Adults try to solve problems themselves so it is embarrassing to admit need for input. Arguments with spouses, relatives, phobias, infidelity, porn addiction, workaholism, when they are persistent, cause people to consult me to figure out what's going on. If I can find factors in their functioning of which they are unaware, and bring those to their attention, they may be able to find solutions. One goal of mine and of my patients is to solve problems and be done with me and treatment. Confidentiality is critical. You will not see anyone else except me in my office or on zoom. I treat people and consult with therapists daily.
