I have studied in the Emotionally Focused Therapy model, the GOLD STANDARD for couples therapy. The majority of my practice and training is focused solely on helping relationships improve. I see couples who need help as well as individuals who either need support in their relationships or who have other concerns such as anxiety, depression, grief or anger.   

The disconnect in a relationship can be profound, yet some couples I’ve had the privilege of working with repair even the deepest wounds and are able to reconnect fully.

I AM NOT THE THERAPIST THAT SIMPLY SMILES AND NODS. I know what it takes to keep a relationship strong and work best with clients who are tired of being unhappy.  My clients are most successful when they are willing to do what it takes to make some changes. I can't change your relationship. You have to change your relationship and I am 100% ready to help support you in that.

Personally Speaking

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my 4 children, my husband, my friends, and my extended family. Mine is a blended family, which has been interesting to say the least! I think managing the schedules and needs of a family of 6 while getting dinner on the table each night merits bragging rights!  If I can remember who needs to picked up where, who has swimming lessons when, and which kid needs help studying for their math test the next day, I'd say that's a good day! 

For this to work, my husband has been my greatest inspiration. It is through this 2nd marriage that I've learned some of the most challenging and foundational lessons of my life. It is from him that I learned how to face conflict.

It is with him that I learned how to parent four very different children and step-children, with different needs, at different stages of their lives. And it is with him that I learned that having a life partner who is emotionally present and connected can be a strong force that keeps us happy and able to overcome our conflict together.

A few more random tidbits to help you get a sense of who I am, beyond my work: I enjoy yoga and am actually a certified yoga instructor.  I love exploring and travel, baking with my children, reading a good book, and watching my Netflix shows while sipping on a cup of green tea.

Are you and your partner caught in a cycle of repetitive arguments? Do you feel like you're constantly criticizing each other or avoiding important conversations altogether? You're not alone.
