Lonely. Hopeless. Confused. Your partner doesn’t listen to you anymore. You haven’t had sex in months and there is constant stress about money.

You miss your best friend and you want to save your marriage, find more joy, rediscover your authentic self and live your best life.

I help frustrated couples find more effective ways to emotionally and physically connect with each other. Together, we will explore the Five Love Languages in order to more deeply connect with your partner.

Most couples wait to seek counseling an average of six years after problems started. And we all know that divorce costs much more than repairing your relationship.

My approach with couples:

  • You and your partner both want to save your marriage and improve your relationship. I can help you improve communication skills and increase the empathy you have for your partner.

  • We will talk about sex. I am there to help facilitate the conversation. You're not "turned on" and you don't feel attractive or sexy any more. Maybe you haven’t had sex in a very long time. You are not alone.

  • Each partner is allowed time and space to describe their experience from their own perspective. I am very careful about pacing our sessions so that you do not become too overwhelmed with emotions. We will share our time so that I am able to listen and validate each partner’s experience.

  • I help couples rediscover friendship for each other. I especially enjoy helping men improve their ability to simply listen and turn towards their partner, instead of shutting down, trying to fix something or cutting you off emotionally.

  • My office is a designated safe space for couples to share emotions, change behaviors and to improve their relationship. Hurtful venting, heated arguments or any kind of abuse during our sessions is strictly prohibited. I support and encourage you towards shared common goals that we will agree upon together in our first session.

  • During our time together, it is essential to maintain a consistent self-care routine.
