My view of psychotherapy is an intermittent and life long process where individuals and couples are able to explore and challenge their fears, confront their past, and heal to make positive change to improve their quality of life. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment that is free of judgement where you can look at personal fears, issues that hinder growth, and identify feelings so that one can move toward the steps of change.
I work with couples to help them get the most from their relationships and their lives. You may be at a crisis point in your relationship or just wanting to improve your connection with your significant other. Through this work you may then be able to free yourself from stress, anger, sadness, anxiety and help you both live your life to the fullest. With support, empathy, and concern, I can help you create and develop or maintain a loving relationship that can last a lifetime. The process begins with couples looking at their individual needs in a task oriented approach to help identify what needs are important to each as an individual and then as a couple.
