If relationships are causing suffering that you can't seem to end on your own, you are not alone. Whether we are trying to get into one, to stay in one, or to leave one, many of us need help figuring out why relationships are keeping us stuck or in pain. Maybe you keep making unhealthy choices, or can't ever seem to meet someone. Maybe you and your partner keep having the same fight, or feel distant and lonely. Or maybe one or both of you aren't sure whether you should stay together or be apart. Whatever the reason, I look forward to helping you unlock the source of your relationship struggle and to move in a clearer direction. We can work together to rebuild your ways of interacting, and to help you make choices that will support a more satisfying and authentic experience of yourself and the most important people in your life. I am a certified couples and family therapist as well as an analytically trained psychotherapist and have a decade of experience helping individuals and couples find more sustaining lives.

More Info About My Practice

I am not an in-network provider but will help you submit claims for reimbursement of out-of-network benefits. In addition, I accept payment by credit card or PayPal. I am happy to offer a brief telephone consultation to see to explore whether I might be the right fit and to discuss fees.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I specialize in working with couples and individuals struggling with relationship issues of all sorts, including marital conflict, problems of sexuality, decisions around separation and divorce, and difficulty finding and maintaining intimacy.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

As with most relationships, a choice in therapist is highly personal. What works for one person may not work for another. A therapist can have all right the training and credentials, but if you do not have a basic feeling of trust and connection, the therapy will fall flat. I also believe that solid training and experience are the critical underpinnings of a foundation to work from. I invite you to join me in an initial session where we can start to get to know each other and you can get a feeling for whether I am the right person to help you.
