    My Approach to Helping

    If you’ve experienced difficulties in your current relationship that overshadow your ability to feel joy, wellness and hopefulness, we can work together to rebuild and enliven your connection. As we explore the dynamics of your relationship, we may come to understand that you feel both fulfillment of your innermost needs, and reactivation of your deepest wounds. We will look to the positive, fulfilling aspects of your relationship to use as resources to repair your current rifts. We’ll look at how you each express yourselves and your communication styles. And as you gain insight into how you show up in your relationship, you’ll be able to experience more healthful interactions with your partner.

    My calm, empathic demeanor invites you into a confidential, nonjudgmental space where we can discuss your concerns. My goal is to foster a trusting therapy relationship with you while we address your current concern, nourish your healing process, and encourage your ongoing personal growth.

    More Info About My Practice

    In addition to couples counseling, I work with adult individuals, seeking support as they work through personal challenges and life transitions. Affirming and secular, welcoming clients from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

    Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

    Throughout our lives we are presented with the opportunities to evolve into our best selves. Sometimes these opportunities show up in subtle ways, and we make minor adjustments or decide they’re just a random event. At other times issues clobber us like ‘cosmic two-by-fours’ and render us unable to carry on with our day-to-day life without experiencing a great deal of emotional distress.

    Reaching out for support and guidance through these challenges does not mean that you have an inherent character flaw or that you need to carry shame for wanting help. I honor you that you have put forward the courage to recognize and make the call to seek help for your present concern. I work compassionately and collaboratively as we explore the nature of the issue and seek ways to create the opening for more choice, flexibility and enhance your problem-solving ability.

    When a friend or loved-one is hurting we naturally jump into care-giving mode. Rather than thinking that ‘I can do it myself’, why not allow that same caring awareness to be turned toward ourselves and reach out for support?
