Couples in Crisis: You're Not Alone
Relationships are tough and we can find ourselves acting in ways that surprise even ourselves when things go wrong. So, you won't find me occupying the moral high ground, playing therapy tricks on you, or judging you. I'm marriage and relationship friendly, so I won't push you toward a crisis, a divorce or a break-up. As it is 50% of marriages end in divorce and upwards of 65% of second marriages end in a break-up, so if you have hopes and dreams for making things work, I'll be behind you 100%. The vast majority of couples who work with me, find healing and peace in their relationships - often faster than they expect. If you aren't sure if saving your relationship is what you want, that's okay too. I won't judge you or make it my mission to convince you otherwise. Some people in such a situation find Counseling with the sole aim of Clarity to be a helpful route to greater self and relationship understanding before they jump into making things work in Couples Counseling or pursuing a Divorce.Maybe you’re not in crisis and you are deeply committed to your partner and generally you’ve got a great relationship, but 10% of the time things get painfully off track. Sounds pretty normal, right? No doubt about it — and Couples Counseling is great for people who want to take the rough edges off their relationship, finally make progress on worn out old arguments, or end the cycle of tiring dead end interactions.
And I know this is hard. You've likely been debating seeking help for months, if not years. But I'm so glad you found me and have taken the courageous step of being here.
Solo Private Practice Specializing In Relationships
Couples Counseling isn’t run of the mill Mental Health work and the training to do couples work shouldn’t be run of the mill either. Fewer than 12% of therapists specialize in Marriage and Family Therapy and have pursued clinical supervision and mentoring specifically geared toward making relationships work. I’m excited to watch how my specialized training and passion for relationships makes a difference in the lives of the couples I work with. I’ll be glad if you are one of them. A relationships expert is especially needed when a couple’s problems are nuanced and part of old ingrained patterns. Couples who see me notice right away that Couples Counseling isn’t run of the mill Mental Health therapy. Couples therapy requires more than a passive, caring listener. I’ll be engaging, active, practical and comfortable with the intensity and pace of your relationship so that you won’t leave a session with me wondering “what use” it was — and you can rest assured that you are getting the personal attention that a solo private therapy practice provides
I understand no two couples are the same, and I tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand the root cause of your struggles and address those issues with time tested couples therapy strategies designed to be practical and powerful without blame, judgment, or time wasting.

Compassionate & Professional
I'll care about you, your family, and your story. You can trust that I will treat you with respect, dignity and compassion in every interaction, while maintaining the highest standards for integrity and ethics.
I'm a Husband and Dad who experiences the ups and downs of relational life like anybody else. In fact, good therapists very often have "been there", survived, and come out better for it eager to help others do the same. I'm no different (my wife will gladly confirm this!) -- I'm learning as I go, improving along the way, and along with my specialized training and lengthy experience, I love helping others move forward into better relationships too.
