Whether your sex life lacks spark or you keep having the same arguments over and over, I can help break down the chronic patterns that keep you entrenched in the struggle. I'm interested in collaborating to create realistic and achievable goals while measuring our progress along the way. Let's talk specifically about what you want so we can get you there.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I have experience working with individuals and couples who've been involved in infidelity and extra-marital experiences, who are on the verge of divorce and ambivalent about what to do next. An intimate betrayal may be the most painful and damaging event a couple will ever face. You might feel shattered and broken or fierce and furious, numbness, or nothing at all, and all of this at once. Your sense of self is irrevocably changed. But it does not have to mean the end. You can survive this.
I can help you make sense of what you're experiencing and look closely at what brought you here in order to move toward a course of action that we can take step by step. I'm here to help you examine your role in the relationship so be prepared to talk about the contributions you've made, both positive and negative. If you're ready to move forward, together or apart, I'm here to help.
What I Usually Need to Know to Help
To help you think about what our first session might be like, here are few questions I usually ask:
What hasn't been working and for how long?
Can you think of a time when you're weren't experiencing what you are now? What was going on then?
How would you like to feel that is different from what you're feeling now?
I am looking forward to working with you!
