Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I specialize in working with couples struggling with a wide range of issues. From problems with communication and feeling connected, to parenting, affair recovery and just learning not to take the relationship for granted anymore, therapy can make a big difference. Like any other living thing, a partnership is a dynamic, growing thing that needs attention and to be nurtured and cared for. Couples therapy is an effective way to learn how to identify and express your own needs at the same time hearing, understanding, and meeting your partners needs. I have helped many couples overcome seemingly impossible challenges and go on to build happy, healthy, more satisfying relationships that last!

I help couples who have become stuck in arguments that seem to repeat and rarely get resolved. Sometimes it can seem like the same argument happens over and over even though the topic might look different. Often partners don't feel that they are understood or heard. I help couples with understanding, seeing, and hearing their own and their partner's more vulnerable feelings. These feelings can quickly ignite into anger and frustration or have one person pull away in silence. This sets up a pattern that people get stuck in. However, understanding what is driving that pattern can help couples change and find the support, safety, and closeness they crave from their relationship.
