Are you finding yourself having the same fight with your spouse over and over again?
 Do you feel like your partner just doesn't hear you and you're starting to lose hope about this relationship? 
 Is it becoming a constant struggle to get your needs met in your relationship? 

We learn a lot of great (and maybe not so great) things in school, but we don't get the education or training we need to help us have the kind of relationships we want. The kind that allow us to feel fully seen and connected. Yet it's the one thing that many of us want most in life, and the one thing that has an enormous impact on our level of happiness.

Imagine a world where we saw couples therapy or relationship skills development as just a part of our regular education or health care plan...or even as important as getting an oil change or a haircut. We might be looking at a pretty different world, don't you think?

If you're here because you're looking to prepare for marriage, brush up on some skills before small issues because more problematic ones, or have a pretty good relationship but think it could be better, good for you. My dream is for more people to see me for prevention rather than intervention.

However, the truth is that by the time couples decide to come to counseling, one or both partners might be on the verge of losing all hope. This might even be you right now. In my experience as a marriage and family therapist, it's very common for me to see two people who care so much about one another yet are just unable to connect. They feel like the possibility of positive change is just "wishful thinking."

The good news is, I rarely find this to be accurate. Although you may not be able to see it in the beginning, positive change can be a reality. I have seen firsthand the transformation that can take place when the right tools and guidance are in place. My job is to not only instill a level of hope, but to provide the emotional space necessary to safely address concerns, break old patterns that aren’t working, and learn new skills and behaviors that will help you be the couple you want to be.

I believe good relationships and marriages make good children, more productive employees, and better citizens. I’m passionate about the work that I do and it would be a privilege to accompany you on this challenging (yet very rewarding) journey!
