About

I became a therapist out of a deep sense of understanding. I have personally been through a separation and divorce. We have two kids and there have been times when it hasn't been easy on them. It is because of that personal experience that I feel it is so important to provide support to people who are going through difficult times in a relationship.

I spent the first part of my career in public mental health. I worked with kids and their families. Then I moved to working with adults who had schizophrenia and substance use disorders. It was meaningful work, but not nearly as meaningful as the work I do now.

My main approach to couples therapy is the Gottman method although I also draw from a number of other approaches that I have studied. My goal is to make everyone in the room feel safe and provide the skills you need to say the things that need to be said. It is only in truly honest communication that we can know and be known by one another. That is where real intimacy in relationship is built.

If there has been a breach in your relationship, you may be wondering whether it is possible to repair it. The answer is both no and yes. Things will never go back to the way they were. So if that's what you're hoping for, I'm not sure you're going to get your wish. On the other hand, was it really what you wanted it to be? And that's the yes.

My dream for couples is that they can build something new. Yes, you're the same two people. But the relationship is different. It takes a lot of digging and a lot of vulnerability. Give me a call if you're ready to get started!
