Practice Description

Do you find yourself going around and around, in the same negative, draining, patterns with your partner, not knowing how to stop them from happening? Or worse yet, you've given up hope believing things can really change? This leads to feeling angry, numb, and shutdown. You believe you have tried everything possible to reconnect but nothing works, leaving you more and more depressed and hopeless. It can be so disheartening and depressing, then to top it off you just don't know where to turn or whom to turn to? I would like to help you with this process and help you feel safe and connected.

As a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist and Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist, I can assist you and the ones you love start to untangle those negative cycles you become caught in so you can feel more deeply connected with one another. I have been helping couples for over 20 years and I have the training and experience to make that happen. Of course you want help with problem solving and communication, but once you are able to safely turn to each other and share your hurts and hopes, problem solving and communication comes naturally. I just want to know what gets in the way of doing this in order to build a bridge of reconnection.

My areas of focus include: helping couples who struggle with affairs/infidelity, infertility challenges both during and after, grief and loss, military couples who struggle with transitions, parenting struggles, including blended family issues, trauma that occurred during the time of relationship and prior, medical challenges, anxiety, PTSD, depression, as well as couples who have just given up and are leading two separate lives.

I also provide family therapy. As a couple, marriage and family therapist with over 20 years of experience and knowledge, I have also worked with many diverse populations. My own marriage of over 30 years has benefitted from Emotionally Focused Therapy, the primary form of therapy provide. So whether you are just beginning your relationship, are newly engaged or have been together for many years, I want to help you transform hopelessness into hopefulness. Let me help you by calling 443-254-0686.
