Sometimes we find ourselves just surviving and not really living our lives. We try and we try, but we don?t know how to make it better ? how to feel better, how to make our relationship work better. It?s okay not to be okay, but you don?t have to stay there. I can help when you?re feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and unsure about next steps! You can have lasting freedom and strong relationships.

I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). Having the CCTP certification means that I have been specially trained to help people who have experienced many types of trauma and are experiencing traumatic stress. I also have received specific training in EMDR, DBT, and trauma-focused CBT (TF-CBT).

My work with couples is based on the Gottman Method, which was born out of more than 40 years of research on what makes relationships work. I perform a detailed assessment of your relationship to identify areas of strength and areas of challenge. With that information we work to address your areas of challenge while capitalizing on your areas of strength. The skills I help you learn are key to making love last (or helping you find it again).

More Info About My Practice

I am in-network with some Blue Cross Blue Shield plans and will file claims for you if your plan covers the mental health services provided. For many providers I am considered out of network. I will provide you with a detailed statement that you can provide to your insurer or Medical FSA provider for reimbursement. I also am able to offer some sliding-fee-scale slots.

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

There can be a strong stigma associated with seeing a counselor. It's true that when many people seek the help of a counselor things are not going well in their lives. Counseling, though, is less like a doctor's visit where you get a prescription and all is well. Counseling is more like going to the gym - except this is exercise for your mind and soul. Having an independent person to talk about life challenges or past hurt or trauma can help you gain perspective. Also, your counselor may be able to see things that you can't see because you're in the middle of something.

Going to therapy can help you be a better person, a better relationship partner, or a better parent (or all three!). Therapy can help you learn new skills to help you communicate better or be more assertive. And if things are in a tough spot, therapy can help you see light in the darkness. Seeking therapy isn't a sign of weakness - it's a sign of intelligence. You seek out experts to help you with plumbing concerns, construction projects, and medical care. Why wouldn't you seek out an expert in helping you meet the deeper goals you have in life?
