As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I specialize in helping individuals and couples address relationship problems. I have a special interest in working with couples but I also enjoy working with individuals in helping them improve their coping skills and lower their stress levels, gain insight and explore issues of self esteem and depressed mood. The focus of our work together will depend on your needs but my goal as your therapist is to hep you learn how to better tolerate anxiety and discomfort around uncertainty and change rather than having no anxiety. I have specialized training in working with couples. Being in a committed relationship forces you to grow. What is a normal process though can lead to gridlock. Accommodating the needs of another person while trying to maintain one's self intact is no easy task and can lead couples to make all sorts of wrongful conclusions: "we love each other but we are not in love anymore", "maybe we are not compatible", "this is not normal, other couples are not like this", "if we loved each other this shouldn't be so hard". Together we can explore what is keeping your relationship stuck, how to better tolerate anxiety and discomfort, how to rebuilt trust and how to ignite your passion again.
