What I tell couples all the time is this, “what may seem hopeless at the beginning is actually very changeable.” I utilize a positive, values-driven approach to help couples create a relationship where both partners feel honored and respected. I get in there with you. I’m active with you. Your relationship becomes a sacred space where it is safe for you to be complete and whole, as well as help each other continue to grow. My 15+ years of experience have taught me couples appreciate my open and direct, warm and inviting style. I know how to be gently directive when you need that from me. My job is to empower both you and your relationship. Perhaps my most important role is to hold the hope for your relationship until you are ready to reclaim it. We often laugh together in therapy because rediscovering that hope and love is exhilarating.
