Personalized Couples Counseling/Coaching & Empowering Individual Therapy. I call myself the Relationship Therapist, because my passion is helping clients find the good relationships they long for, helping couples build strong and healthy relationships that go the distance, and in healing from broken or painful relationships that have left scars behind. I believe in your relationship, and I'm here to help you save it and see it thrive again. I also believe in the potential of each individual, and I can help you overcome the difficult emotions that hold you back, so that you can feel good again. There are a lot of counselors out there, but truly helpful and productive counseling isn't easy to find. My approach is very interpersonal, warm and competent, and focused on education, emotional processing, and skill-building. Whatever challenge you're facing, you'll need a new skill set to get past it and into a better future for yourself and your partner. I can help, but it's up to you to take that next step. Please call for a free phone consultation.

More Info About My Practice

If you're not interested in group seminars for couples, with writing homework and artificial communication techniques, but want personalized and focused Couples Counseling/Coaching, then I can help. I also provide the kind of personalized individual attention that clients need to overcome the difficult or painful emotions that hold them back. My approach combines the best of short-term, goal-oriented counseling, and deeper, transformative therapy. Solution-focused: to find what works and how to do more of it; Cognitive-Behavioral: to think more objectively and to react to things better; Psychodynamic: to see the deeper, hidden patterns in our thoughts and feelings and learn to steer them in new and better directions; and Jungian: to live with meaning and purpose, and to grow toward your full potential.

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

Just the opposite! In the 21st century, going to counseling means that you are being proactive about your health and wellbeing, and the wellbeing of those you love. Going to counseling is like going to the gym -- the mental gym -- because you need to be your strongest and your best, now more than ever.
