My Approach to Helping
Do you have the same argument with your spouse over and over again? Do you want to have more of an emotional connection with your husband or wife? I can help you and your partner listen and understand each other in a different way. If you feel frustrated or hopeless that nothing will change, you are not alone. Many of the couples that I work with have felt the same way. I help couples communicate better so they feel good about their relationship.
More Info About My Practice
If you are having the same arguments over and over, I can help you feel understood and listened to. I take a Solution Focused approach so that you and your family learn new skills to get back on track. Most people who work with me stay in counseling short term because I do not believe people need long term counseling in most cases.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I specialize in working with teens who have lost a parent who has died or abandoned them. For over 15 years, I have worked with teens who come into therapy because their grades have gone down, they have "bad attitudes," gotten into trouble, drug abuse, or they have run away. However, there is usually an underlying issue. I am passionate about helping teens work through their issues so that they can have healthy relationships.
