My Approach to Helping
I truly believe that nothing is more important than having a relationship that is fulfilling, close and connected, and that that relationship is vital to having happiness and satisfaction in life. But, it is a sad truth that many people have presenting problems that interfere with their being able to enjoy a close and connected relationship. However, things like a lack of empathy, a feeling of loneliness, even a history of infidelity or domestic violence can be overcome with careful guidance.
Emotionally Focused Therapy is a model that has been proven effective by couples? counselors all over the world, and in employing that model in my own practice, I have been gratified to see couples heal, grow and nurture a bond between them that is stronger than they'd ever experienced before.
If your relationship has suffered injuries, or if you just feel that you've slipped into a state of complacency, know that there is a pathway to healing and rejuvenating the love you have for one another. There is no need to live with a less than satisfying partnership, and you don?t have to go through the rough times alone. Couples therapy can be the beginning of a wonderful journey to reclaiming love and caring, and to feeling like you are the most important person in your loved one's life.

I offer all new clients a free 30 minute telephone consultation. This meeting gives our clients an opportunity to speak with a counselor, find out more about their approach to counseling, and ensure they are a good fit for them.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I have been a practicing counselor for decades. I have dedicated myself to helping couples reconnect and build supportive, loving relationships by working with them to overcome past injuries and correct harmful cycles. By redefining their interpretations and emotional triggers, couples can transform the most negative or just an average relationship into one that is positive and flourishing. I am here to help you stay connected.
What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process
The therapy process is about having a safe haven in which you can talk through the issues you are facing. It is about allowing a professional to give you the guidance you need and to define the map that you can follow to a healthy and fulfilling relationship. As a therapist, it is my job to commit myself to being your guide, to hold your hand, to encourage you, and finally, to celebrate your accomplishments. There is no shame in hiring a mechanic to fix your car, or a plumber to fix your taps, or a therapist to help you fix your relationship.
