About

As a practicing therapist for 15 years,
relationships, marriage and sexuality have been at the forefront of my clinical work. I use Gottman Methods when working with both couples and individuals aspiring to learn effective communication, conflict management skills among other tools to transform current or future relationships. "I believe the o of love is a tragedy. I am creature of hope & root for all couples to prevail." Dr. John Gottman.
I specialize in helping couples experiencing: *high conflict/high negativity; *inability to communicate and express needs: *loss of intimacy/affection; *emotional disengagement; *substance abuse/dependence/addictions* *infidelity (recovery from betrayal); *struggling with infertility, pregnancy, new parenthood; *strife regarding partner's career's; *understanding and coping with partner's trauma/ anxiety/depression etc.; * jealousy; *making the decision to divorce or separate; *overcome family of origin/cultural differences.
I further assist: *singles navigate dating, recuperate from breakups; and *men increase emotional intelligence, commitment phobia.
My approach is active, collaborative; customized to the goals of the individual or couple I am working with. I am trained in and often integrate the Gottman Methods with Emotionally Focused Therapy, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Mindfulness, addiction treatment and sex therapy.

Relationships, marriage, finding a the right person to share your life with is not easy, it takes work.
As humans we have the innate need to love and be loved. Happy relationships do make for happier people.
