My clients are welcomed into a warm, safe and accepting space. I will help you to express your thoughts and feelings while I strive to understand your concerns. My extensive experience, along with current theories and methods guide me in helping you solve your problems, feel better and live a more satisfying life. I work with a range of individuals. My clients include students, persons in recovery from addictions, trauma and/or loss, members of the International and the GLBT communities, couples learning new ways of relating, individuals striving for healthier relationships and/or through life transitions.
I provide Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy for couples in distress. I will help you learn how to change destructive interactions that keep you from feeling close to each other. Some of my couples and individuals are trying to resolve family building issues. I have experience with infertility, adoption, and remaining childless by choice.
