All you need to bring to therapy is an open mind and a willingness to explore. I am a very interactive therapist; I give a lot of feedback and guidance. In my work with individuals, I help people see how they developed the coping skills and defense mechanisms they did, and how to begin recognizing them in a less judgmental way. I also teach couples new communication skills: how to rebuild trust and safety after a breach, how to mirror one another, ways to validate and empathize. We work on breaking bad patterns and create healthier ones using positivity and appreciations.

It's so rewarding to help couples and families heal old and current wounds, and to see my clients use therapy as a way to soar to new emotional freedoms. Please don't be in pain anymore: contact me so we can set goals together, develop healthier ways of coping, and watch you blossom.

If your relationship or marriage is in a tough spot, don’t despair! It’s normal to encounter problems in intimate relationships. Since couples seeking counseling typically feel embarrassed, or like they have failed in some significant way, I prefer to lead with what’s positive. My first priority is to restore hope—hope that, although you may have fought the same fight a thousand times, it is still possible for you and your partner to learn and grow.

I believe that love and intimacy are essential to all of our lives. Even if your relationship is mired in negativity, I will still be your champion. I have never told a couple, “You guys should split up.” That’s your decision, not mine. But if you ask me, I will tell you what I’m thinking or feeling. I definitely do not serve as a “blank screen.” I have biases. I am biased toward telling the truth; toward working things out together; toward laughter and play; toward women’s empowerment; and toward honoring the wisdom of feelings.

When you and your partner are facing greater problems than you can manage on your own, please give me a call. I can help you sort things out.
