Due to the COVID19 virus crisis, I am happy to meet with clients via video or phone sessions in order to comply with safety concerns. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Session Formats: Individuals
Practice Description: I help my clients feel better about themselves and deal more effectively with the people in their lives. Do you sometimes wonder how to get your partner or children to understand you? Are you feeling frustrated and don't know who to talk with? Do you want to increase your effectiveness with others? It is so very important to be known and understood by the people that you care about the most. Your relationships have the potential to be a place where you can bring more joy and happiness into your life.

My approach to therapy is to facilitate successful communication and cooperation resulting in increased closeness and affection. Our work together can help you learn about the patterns of relating to each other, where you get stuck, how to better understand each other and how to resolve your differences respectfully. Once you understand and learn effective strategies and develop key skills, you have the capacity to create a close loving relationship no matter what your past history or current situation.

Symptoms such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, grief, illness, infertility, infidelity, isolation, loneliness, and low self- esteem can contribute to personal and relationship problems. -If you and your partner argue and fight more than you'd like to... -If you are in an "OK" relationship but you secretly long for more... -If you would like help resolving a current challenge or long standing difficulties, I welcome your call or email and I would like to hear your story.
