My Approach to Helping
I have been in practice for many years. This gives me the opportunity of understanding the different life transitions that we all go through. I have worked with people making decisions about their life choices as well as couples deciding to have a baby... couples dealing with challenges of parenting, making decisions to have more children and working with couples dealing with relationship problems at all stages of their relationship.. I also work with many couples that are dealing with affairs and how to deal with this in their relationship.. In addition to dealing with relationship issues, I am also a sex therapist and sexologist. I will also help couples navigate the muddy waters of what to do in their relationship when one person wants out of the relationship and the other partner wants to work on it.
I am a Certified Gottman therapist, Certified Gottman workshop leader and Certified Gottman education where I teach couples about understanding how their relationship changes after having a child. Also a clinical sexologist .
More Info About My Practice
I do not accept insurance but I will for your convenience fill out any forms that will help you get reimbursed. AS everyones financial situation is different, we will discuss this in private.
I will do whatever I can to help you with the problem you come in with. I see many couples that have been to several therapists and I have been told that I was the first therapist that really helped them make changes in their relationship with not only communication issues but also sexual issues that they struggled with for years.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I specialize in working with couples. I understand couples issues because I have been married for many years and I have had to work on my own issues in my relationship. I understand how people fight and why they fight and everything that I help my couples learn, I also integrate in my own relationship.. I experienced anxiety with my first child and I understand what women go through with the exhaustion, fatigue, body image, lack of sexual desire , and all the other issues that come with being a mom, a parent, etc. Even though all the issues I went through were challenging at times, I believe they make me a better person and a better therapist. Because of my personal experiences and because of all the training I have acquired, I feel capable in understanding what people need and therefore I am able to help them... I do not want people to come to therapy and just sit in a chair and talk . I want them to make changes that will help them have a better relationship, and get in touch with what is important to them in their lifetime. If people come to therapy week after week and make no changes, I will ask them what is it they want out of therapy, since they come and pay me but may not do any homework assignments given or practice any exercises that are asked of them.
