About

Important relationships often bring incredible joy and, at other times, deep pain. As a couple's therapist, I work to alleviate the pain, to help clear the path so that two partners can reach each other again.

The Gottman approach is both wide and deep. It involves initial assessments that reveal how the therapy can be personally tailored to best serve each unique couple, each unique relationship, each unique individual. Often the focus involves amplifying a couple's intimate friendship, building fully effective communication patterns, and negotiating conflict in a better way. It might mean strengthening mutual admiration, sharing and supporting each other's dreams, and making space for past injury and healing. Whatever the ailment and whatever the treatment, the therapy ultimately aims to allow partners to themselves sustain a satisfying, even joyful, emotional connection.

I'd be honored to work with your relationship.

About me: Before becoming a psychotherapist, I enjoyed a 20 year career as an English teacher at both the high school and college levels. I have an MA in English and another in Counseling.
