If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these, then I’d like you to know that you’ve come to the right place. Do not be discouraged. It may be comforting to know that few people are actually educated on the complexities of having successful relationships. Few couples learn how to really communicate with one another or know how to continue to cultivate romance once the emotional high of the “honeymoon phase” wears off.
The basic building blocks needed to develop a successful relationship come from understanding what is needed, what is working and what is broken in your couple’s toolbox. I help you to create a well-stocked set of skills, resources and ideas that can be immediately put into action to improve how you interact, communicate, and get your needs met in your relationship.
I am a Solution-Focused Therapist. This means that I work with you to help develop specific goals that you want to achieve while in therapy. Then I develop a set of tools, homework’s, and strategies that help you to reach those goals. I look at evidence-based approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapies, as well as Coaching, Couples and Family Therapies and Play Therapy as tools to help you reach your goals. I also encourage you to be accountable and proactive in your therapy to help you learn to become self-reliant and capable of using tools on your own outside of the therapy setting. I believe in being encouraging and positive as I help individuals, families and couples develop their strengths while overcoming their weaknesses. I am highly invested in each of my clients and strive to help them achieve their therapy goals.
