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, lower their anxiety and stress levels, improve their depressed mood and explore any issues of self esteem. My goal as your therapist is to help you learn how to better tolerate anxiety and discomfort around change or uncertainty rather than to have no anxiety at all. I have specialized training in working with couples. Accommodating the needs of another person while trying to maintain one's self intact is no easy task and it 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". Being in a committed relationship forces you to grow and what is a normal process can lead to gridlock. 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.
