My Approach to Helping

Are you having people stress? Are your relationships chaotic and draining? Interpersonal stress adds up and can become overwhelming. I am a pro-relationship therapist who works with couples and individuals. I believe that meaningful personal growth takes place in the context of our important relationships. Emotional maturity is not possible in isolation. My commitment is to help you be more relationally effective. I have a passion for helping couples rebuild the connection they had when they first fell in love. While it is ideal to have both people engage in the therapy, individuals whose partners are reluctant to participate can still benefit from doing this work. If you are willing to make an honest effort in therapy, give me a call. Let's talk about your specific needs and see if you and I might be a good fit.

My Therapy Focus

The focus of my work is High Impact Therapy for couples and Group Therapy.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

When looking for a good couple's therapist, it is important to find someone who is specifically trained to work with couples. He or she will be trained in specific interventions that will interrupt your your toxic patterns. It is also important to find a therapist who is "marriage-friendly" if that is a value of yours.
