I don't have magic wand, however, I have the experience to help make a difference. I believe meaningful relationships are the key to living a healthier and happier life, and it begins with the science and research conducted by the Gottmans. I have immersed myself in learning from the masters of couples and sex therapy for the past 20 years because to do good therapy, one needs a lot of training, however, to do great therapy, one needs to be human. A trusted couples therapist applying a proven treatment model is the single greatest predictor of successful therapy.
I jump in and work with you - I am not the "judge and jury," deciding who is right or who is wrong. Instead, I provide education and coach you and your partner as you practice new skills. This will not be an unstructured couples session where you come in with your partner, fight for an hour, and leave feeling miserable. When old habits like criticism or defensiveness arise, I will intervene and bring the conversation back on track. I guide couples calmly through difficult conversations, from cleaning the garage to sexual desire or stepchildren, turning a potential fight into connecting with your partner’s heart and soul.
Couples therapy works best when you trust and feel comfortable with your therapist. I want you both to feel welcome and understood. I love when my clients tell me that it was easier for them to open up than they expected, or that they were looking forward to coming in. I genuinely care about the couples with whom I work and am passionate about what I do, so I will be 100% with you, rooting for your relationship every step of the way.
I specialize in healing from infidelity, past trauma and loss of desire and connection. I welcome clients of all ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, and relationship dynamics. I provide a safe, supportive environment for every person to learn and grow within themselves and their relationships.
