A collaborative, non-judgmental approach to couples therapy.

I have had the privilege of working with couples for more than 15 years. When they come to me, many partners find themselves on the brink of splitting up – which is a profoundly painful and lonely place to be.

My role is not to assign blame or assume I have all the answers. Instead, I teach couples how to turn toward one another so they can offer mutual understanding and support. Working as collaborative partners, we find ways to rebuild the relationship on a new foundation of love and respect.

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT), I use many tools when working with couples. I am trained in the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Relational Life Therapy and the Developmental Model advanced by The Couples Institute. I embrace more than one method because experience has taught me that each couple’s needs are unique.

Overcoming the pain of infidelity in couples therapy

Many couples come to me after one or both have cheated. They want to know if their relationships can survive the pain, anger and confusion they feel in knowing their partner has been unfaithful.

Finding the answers requires us to dive deep into the issues within the marriage. People cheat for so many reasons – and these reasons need to come out in the open.

Counseling after infidelity is a challenging process, but one that can create hope, understanding and the chance to reestablish trust between you.

Digital wellness: a growing issue for many couples

Have you noticed that your relationship with digital devices is driving a wedge between you and your partner? Many couples have come to me seeking help with phubbing, online shopping, pornography, gambling, gaming and other online behaviors that are tearing them apart.

  •  Concerns about phubbing, the practice of turning away from our partners the instant a new text or alert hits our phones
  •  Replacing intimacy with increasing amounts of online porn
  • Binge-watching favorite shows alone instead of spending time together
  • Compulsive online shopping that undermines financial health
  • Emotional or even physical affairs that happen over the internet
  • Staying digitally connected to work 24/7, even on vacations and holidays

If you’re experiencing these issues — or simply feeling angry and annoyed by your partner’s addiction to tech — don’t wait until things get worse. Let’s address the situation together.
