Over the past 15 years, most of my clients have come seeking guidance; often confused and distressed about how to move forward. This is most often true for the couples I work with.

So many couples are stuck in repetitive patterns of unhelpful communication, dynamics of one pursuing while the other distances, difficulties accepting influence from one another, opposing views on the helpfulness of articulating emotions, and struggles with intimacy.

​You should expect that you will gain insight into the origins and ongoing reinforcers of the problems within your relationship. Through the gradual introduction of strategies for conflict resolution, building friendship and trust, and deepening your sense of connection through shared dreams and meaningful goals; you will find greater relationship satisfaction. This often lends itself to a sense of security, knowing you are building protective factors against the variables that often lead to failed relationships.

​The type of therapeutic environment I offer is one of openness, compassion, non-judgmental, and direction toward the complex truths of what is causing dissatisfaction and distress within your relationship.

I am trained in Levels I and II of the Gottman Method and use Gottman Connect, an in depth assessment tool offered by providers approved by the Gottman Institute.

​Consider scheduling a complimentary 15 minute consultation through my website or email with any questions you may have. Consultations are a great first step because I will listen to your concerns and provide initial feedback. This will help you feel confident in your decision about who you choose as your provider.
