My Approach to Helping

I CAN HELP HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIP. "Why does my partner overreact?" "Why do I get so triggered?" "How come the punishment doesn't fit the crime?" “Why can’t he be more supportive?” “Is anything I do ever enough for her?” While you are feeling hurt, you have an added layer of confusion. You simultaneously love your partner and even hope to stay in this relationship to keep your love, family, and dreams intact. You are torn in a tug-of-war of emotions and desire to feel understood, accepted, and embraced by your partner.

HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIP AT ITS ROOT! Your dynamic is being driven by vulnerable and deep emotions. Those deep emotions are sensitive ‘raw spots' that are easily provoked and can cause you intolerable emotional discomfort- and leads to a “fight-or-flight” (anxious, angry, avoidant) response. This starts a negative cycle that creates more distance between you.

CHANGE IS POSSIBLE! In therapy with me, you will learn strategies to respond differently and avoid slipping into old negative cycles of criticism, questioning, defensiveness, shutting down, and avoidance. I’ve helped HUNDREDS of people experience EMOTIONAL INTIMACY by learning how to effectively share and receive each other’s deeper emotions.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?


It took 26 years for my own dormant emotional issues, which I never knew I had, to surface.

Frankly, I was shocked and confused as to who I really was. It was frightening for me to call a therapist. Admittedly, I only made the call because my struggles were also affecting my fianc?.

I jumped right in and guess what? I didn?t like it!
It took even more courage to try another therapist, but that saved me and my marriage and I am forever grateful.

I sincerely hope that you find the right therapist on the first try, and if not, that you draw from your own willpower to continue and seek a better you.
