Couple & Marriage Counseling

Keeping a marriage or relationship thriving is hard work ! I am passionate about helping couples work collaboratively on their relationship, to make it a safe haven and mutually fulfilling.

It's important to me to provide a warm and safe environment where each partner can be heard and understood. I keep current on the most effective strategies to improve communication and connectedness, control anger, and bring more peace to the relationship.  Common results are a feeling of being on the same page, more intimacy, the ability to disagree respectfully, clearer boundaries and roles, and mutual appreciation. 

I use effective interventions incorporating strength-based, solution-focused strategies. Theories include Brief Therapy, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Mindfulness.
