One of my profound joys in life is the privilege of sitting with hurting people and offering hope of a better day and a better future. Very few people wake up thinking, "I'm going to ruin my life today." People wake up and make the best of what they have. Sometimes we try all of the "best efforts" we know and relationships become more disconnected, maybe even detached. That hurts. People are basically good and well-meaning. You are doing the best you can. When the "best" we are doing does not produce the joy, love, and life we want we may need outside help.
Finding someone who can help you when life has you befuddled and at the point of despair and hopelessness can be difficult. Let me sit with you where you are and help you find your way out to a more fulfilling life. Not all relationships can be saved, but you can experience shame-free help. Call me!

More Info About My Practice
Is this you? You are experiencing serious relationship distress. Chaos may be a better word and chaos is not what you signed up for. I get it. My first marriage lasted thirty years. We started fighting about money and our kids throughout our entire marriage. I never sought help because I felt there was no professional help that could make a difference. I no longer believe distressed relationships are hopeless. Rather, I have a strong conviction that many helpless relationships can find help and hope. Call me!
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Difficult relationships are my specialty. I have extensive training working with high-conflict, high-distressed couples. When your partner sets you off, it can incite a war. Conflict can also lead to shutting down and avoidance because it hurts so much! Relationship hurts may be the most harmful.
The great news is I may be able to help you make sense of what you are experiencing and in so doing, you and your partner have a very good chance of repairing your relationship. If the relationship can be repaired in a way that flows into staying in a state of healthy repair, then you may end up with more of the relationship you did not think possible.
My Role as a Therapist
My role is to come along side of you and help you. I take a "curious stance." That means I guard against assuming I know what you need. I ask a lot of questions. I work with you to explore your experiences. I want to know what your life has been like and how you have been shaped by those experiences. Our life experiences can have a profound influence on hope we view ourselves and how we view others. What we tell ourselves about us and about others shapes how we feel about our experiences. What we feel drives our actions. As a result, it is easy for me to say, "Of course, you are _________ (angry, hurt, fearful, stressed out, anxious, depressed, etc.) It makes perfect sense."
Together, we explore and come up with a healing direction. Does that sound easy? I've found it is hard work worth doing.
