My Approach to Helping

Do you feel unheard or misunderstood in your relationship with your spouse or family member? Relationships can be difficult to navigate at times! I strongly believe in John Gottman's Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, and as a Level 1 Certified Gottman Therapist, much of my work with couples is based on those key principles. I believe that in relationships, people want to feel (at a minimum): love, belonging, support, safety, understanding, trust, and peace. However, there are moments when we are missing something, and we can feel lost, unbalanced, and disconnected. The disconnection can lead to feeling depressed, anxious, stuck, and hopeless. Does this sound like you? Are you missing one of these key elements?

I am passionate about helping individuals, couples and families work through relationship challenges and conflict! I enjoy teaching strategies to help others more effectively communicate their message, to feel heard and understood. I can also help individuals learn how to ask to get their needs met while meeting the needs of others, rebuild trust and reduce jealous thoughts and feelings, and more!

Is the misbehavior of one member of your family impacting the whole family system? Let's work together to help you and your family address this challenging behavior, create and impact change, and regain the balance and joy in your lives which you so very much deserve!

Are you engaged to be married and feel overwhelmed and anxious? Wedding planning can be exciting and stressful at the same time! Working collaboratively, we can find coping strategies to help you navigate more effectively through the wedding stress, get organized, and make the process more enjoyable!

More Info About My Practice

Recommendations will only be made after a thorough assessment has been completed. I individualize all treatment plans and help individuals and couples set realistic, attainable goals. Change can be difficult and uncomfortable at times, but it is also necessary for growth. I will work side by side with you to work through any discomfort as you go through the process of making lasting changes! It's exciting to see the results that can unfold and the progress that people can make, leading them to live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives!

I offer flexible appointment times Monday-Friday in the morning, afternoon and evenings. I accept most major insurance and there are self-pay options available.
