Message to clients

Is your relationship suffering from ongoing issues? Does it seem to be getting worse? Family conflict? Has your child begun to act out behaviorally? Issues with trust? Infidelity? Issues with communication? Lack of overall satisfaction? Has it gotten to the point where you've considered breaking things off with your partner? Ending a friendship? Cutting off a family member? Pause for a moment...and consider this...what would be different in your life if the issues within your relationship were no longer a major concern? How would the quality of your life be impacted?

You might be happy to know...most issues in relationships can be improved with time, patience, effort and commitment. I happen to specialize in treating couples, families and individuals. I like to use Gottman’s Relationship Method, Emotion Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Intergenerational Therapy, Solution Focused and Trauma-Informed Approaches.
