“Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.”
— Maya Angelou
“Love is that condition in the human spirit so profound that it empowers us to develop courage; to trust that courage and build bridges with it; to trust those bridges and cross over them so we can attempt to reach each other.”
— Maya Angelou
My specialty and passion is working with couples. Our intimate relationships can be the most rewarding, fulfilling and meaningful parts of our lives and at the same time, they can also cause us the most pain, frustration and sadness. By providing a space that is safe and supportive, I work collaboratively with couples to help heal wounds, deepen connections and navigate change.
My approach is warm and supportive with a focus on emotions and attachment. I believe that lasting change and healing come from new emotional experiences; feeling life in a new way versus just thinking about it in a new way. I also believe in having a good sense of humor.
It is in our human nature to be drawn to connection and to attach and depend on others. The destructive and dysfunctional patterns, we often become trapped in, make it very difficult, if not impossible, to connect with each other. I believe that through our work together you will reconnect with your natural tools, to turn toward and reach for your partner for support, growth and healing. My goal is for couples to leave therapy feeling a deeper connection within themselves and within their relationship.
Common issues of concern that may be addressed include, but are not limited to, communication, trust, sex, life transitions, parenting conflicts, betrayal, divorce, forgiveness, disconnect.
