Are you struggling in your relationship? Do you have a desire to
patch the growing rip driving a wedge between you and someone you
love? Whether you’re experiencing difficulties with a significant
other, family member or friend, these troubles can weigh heavily on
the ability to be happy.
I’d like to help you improve your relationships. My goal is to
facilitate healthy communication, to ensure needs are being met within
your relationship, emotions and feelings are being validated and heard
and concerns are being brought forward in a safe, trusting and
comfortable environment. I believe changing negative belief systems
and communication patterns can lead to healthier behavior, happiness
and ultimately, a restored relationship.
I practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with a Solution-Oriented
approach. I work with teens dealing with social pressures, couples
experiencing relationship blocks, individuals contending with pre-
and/or post- divorce trauma and families undergoing communication
Relationships can be tough at times but you don’t need to struggle
through them. Feel free to schedule an appointment with me if you are
ready to be happy, improve your relationships and regain that luster
