Do you feel misunderstood or unappreciated? Do you struggle to connect with your partner? I can help you speak to your partner in a way that really works. We can work together to eliminate the dread of uncomfortable discussions, while rebuilding connection and trust. We work together so it feels less scary. You don't have to endlessly wait to rediscover your partnership, passion, and romance.

I help each couple uncover its strengths and weaknesses, then create an individualized treatment plan based on the couple's needs. I use a research-supported approach known as Gottman Method Couples Therapy. This approach can help you recover from an affair, reconnect after an addiction, and navigate the challenges of a relationship affected by mental illness.

My clients tell me I am friendly, warm, easy to talk to, and non-judgmental. I support you to rediscover your connection, while coaching you on effective communication. I specialize in addiction recovery, codependency, LGBT clients, and couples counseling, and offer therapy to families, individuals, and couples.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Acknowledging you need help means you have strength and character. It is often difficult to accept that we all have difficulties in life and we don't always have the answers on our own. Sometimes we just need a new set of tools and some support to get through the rougher patches in life.
