My Approach to Helping

Personal relationships can bring untold joy to our lives. However, they may also be the source of chronic emotional pain. We specialize in helping people establish stronger relationships through better communication, understanding, and engagement.

Successful therapy requires a commitment to making positive changes, honesty, and effort. We offer a safe, comfortable environment where you can explore your concerns and heal. Our treatment team is empathetic, respectful, and supportive. We will help you as you journey toward increased health and happiness.

More Info About My Practice

Family and relationships are the most important things in our lives, but they can also be the place where we find most hurt and need the most healing. We specialize in working with individuals, families, and children by helping people communicate better through understanding and engagement. Therapy takes effort, honesty, and a willingness to engage in self-exploration. We will seek to meet you where you are and provide a safe environment for growth and change. We are here to listen, support, and help you in your journey forward.

We offer services to individuals, couples, and families. We utilize an optimistic, person-centered approach to individual therapy. When working with couples, we primarily employ techniques grounded in emotionally focused therapy to help partners lower their defenses and increase intimacy. In sessions with families, we help family members to interact and cooperate as a close-knit unit.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Many new clients will often tell me how they've had a negative experience in therapy. This experience can be quite jarring because few things are as difficult as being vulnerable with someone. We make an active goal to make you feel as safe, supported, and engaged as possible.
