Couples and Individuals Supporting Your Well-Being
I'm Here to Listen
I'm Here to Listen
My experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized, psychological care. I treat a number of mental health disorders, and provide a neutral ground to individuals and couples.
My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. I am an active therapist and provide a neutral safe space, listen to your concerns, and customize a treatment plan.
Psychotherapy for people with addictions and for family members of people with addictions. I have worked in addiction treatment for 30+ years and understand the difficulty of changing. I approach addiction and families with addiction with respect and concern and without judgement.
Wouldn't you like to feel close again? Wouldn't you like to have strategies for addressing problems--that work?
My work with couples leans on two approaches, the Bader approach and the EFT Couples Therapy approach. We will find what is pulling you apart and help you intervene in the negative cycles that keep the conflict or the distance in place.
Discernment counseling is a specific short term approach designed to help couples on the brink of divorce decide whether to take one of 3 paths:
This service is for couples where one person is leaning towards ending the couple relationship but not absolutely certain of that decision. It is not therapy, but is a process to attain clarity and confidence in your decision by understanding how you got here and each person's contribution. If you think you or your spouse is considering divorce (whether married or not) this may help you make a decision.
Mediation involves a neutral party trained to help resolve conflict. I am a trained mediator and have years of experience helping people resolve disputes in simple and more complex areas, including divorce mediation, business partnerships, neighbor disputes, tenant landlord disputes among others.
If you have decided to divorce, Collaborative Divorce is a strategy that supports your family in divorcing with dignity and respect. Deciding to end your couple relationship does not mean that it was never good or valuable. Using the collaborative process means that you have a team supporting you through this, including two attorneys, a financial professional, one or two coaches and possibly a child specialist if you have children. I am a trained collaborative coach and work as a part of the team.
