Can I help? Maybe you are looking to feel better than you do or you want a healthier relationship. Maybe things feel more dire than are successful and together, the one others turn to, but secretly you are afraid that you're permanently damaged or that your relationship has experienced too much resentment and pain to recover. Together we will look at those issues and develop goals & tools to move through them. Essential to this growth is strengthening emotion management, communication, and conflict resolution skills. You can be ok, you can be happier... you can even feel amazing.
What you see is what you get, as a person and a therapist. My style is relaxed but direct; I want to optimize your time and growth. Specialties: Successful couples on the rocks & successful individuals struggling with self, potentially experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, addiction and trauma.
On a personal note, I've been married 10yrs to my favorite person, Jason :). Some of my favs include, our rescue dogs, outdoors, friends, family, gardening, camping, cooking, eating & wine.
