As a Certified Gottman Therapist, I specialize in helping couples navigate their relationships by applying advanced skills to explore their stuck places and rejoin in the friendship that brought them together in the first place. Over my 15+ years as a Marriage & Family Therapist, I have witnessed the kind of pain that couples experience in the repeated and frustrating tension cycle of “Here We Go Again”. This perpetual cycle includes each partner having a dream and not being understood - causing for a stalemate and disconnection. I sit with couples that need to explore their cycle for greater clarity and have a goal of change.

As a therapist, I am passionate about walking alongside folks as they reveal their truths and vulnerabilities to themselves. I believe, and have witnessed that people are capable of long standing change with knowledge, support, and connection, and that therapy is a great place for that. You can learn new ways to manage life stressors, feel safe, gain confidence, and live a more joyful and purposeful life. I use cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, and strength-based techniques, while never ignoring the human element and connection where the real change happens.

I support couples who are in acute crisis as well as those who are slowly quietly drifting apart. I view relationships as an opportunity to wake up to, understand, and heal our deepest emotional wounds. Unfortunately once we move past the initial high of romantic infatuation, in love we often find ourselves stuck in a swampland of pain. It may even start to feel as if your partner is the biggest source of suffering in your life rather than your closest ally. My work with couples helps them move their relationship from chaos and pain to mutual respect and genuine care.

Failing to get help, many divorced people regret that they gave up too soon. As a marriage specialist for over two decades, you can trust that you are in the care of a competent advocate for your marriage. Every marriage faces the power struggle -it's supposed to happen. Too many quit their marriage at this crucial time. Not giving yourselves the opportunity to work through this painful stage could be a tragedy because this very stage carries the seeds of true character growth and healing. An affair, dishonesty, conflict, or stress can rob you of the feelings of attunement.

I like working with people who recognize that they want or need to change something in their lives that they haven't yet figured out how to do by themselves. This includes people who feel they are stuck creatively-- working on a particular project that just doesn't move forward. Sometimes it is a question of what needs to change, as well as how to make that happen. While this process requires work that only they can do, therapy gives them a place to learn ways to do this work, using cognitive and experiential techniques.
