Divorce and break-ups are traumatic - as is figuring out if you should stay or go. I can help. Whether you seek to reclaim your relationship, decide whether or not you can remain together, or you want to come apart with integrity, you are faced with challenges that are painful. It takes time, hard-work, and energy to build a relationship - it simply makes sense that time, hard-work, and energy are needed to repair or dismantle one.

I support all aspects of relationships: reunifying, coming apart honorably, discovering your new identity, co-parenting, supporting children's coping process. I work with couples, individuals, and families to navigate staying together or coming apart in the healthiest way possible for everyone involved.

I emphasize the importance of building trust and creating attainable goals that will help you reshape your life. I offer respect and a safe and confidential place to sift through what is transpiring in your life

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I receive many calls or emails that include some mention of being nervous or unsure about coming to therapy. I promise, it's not as bad as it seems! A good therapist does much more than sit back and say "um-hmm" and "how does that make you feel". Coming to therapy is not admitting defeat or some sort of illustration that you are defective in some way. It is just the opposite! Entering therapy demonstrates that you recognize that you only get to live THIS EXACT LIFE ONCE and you want to embrace it, enjoy it, and experience it fully. It is never too late, and never wrong to reach out for support.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

When you choose a therapist, pay attention to whether or not he/she values the therapist/client relationship. Many studies prove that the single most important variable to whether or not therapy will be successful is the "therapeutic relationship/alliance". Simply put - you have to trust your therapist and have a mutual respect between you. There are many of us in this field, some more "book smart" than others. Wade through the high volume of therapists to find someone with whom you connect; this will make you MUCH more likely to dig deep and do the work that you need to do to reshape your life.
