As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I truly believe that the relationships that surround us shape and mold who we are as people and, therefore, can be incredibly distressing when these relationships go awry. I chose to get a degree in Marriage and Family therapy for this reason, and focus in sessions on relationships and our interactions with others in our lives, be it family members, significant others, coworkers or any other person that one may interact with throughout the course of their life.
I have experience working with couples on a wide range of issues that plague relationships. Issues related to infidelity, communication difficulties, trust issues, frequent conflicts, divorce and blending families to name a few. I also am able to effectively work with those couples who feel that they need some help and support in nurturing their relationship and feel that everyday stressors in life have led them away from a focus on the relationship.
I also work with individuals experiencing distress from the ending of a relationship or with any stressor that may arise in their lives. Even in my work with individuals I make an effort to view problems through a relational lens as, again, my belief is that relationships are often at the core of our distress or unhappiness.
I also have a special ability to easily connect and build a therapeutic relationship with a wide variety of individuals and couples. I am able to effectively connect with teens, families and couples to create a safe environment where change is possible. The effectiveness of therapy is based upon the relationship that is formed between the therapist and the individual(s) seeking out the therapy. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to see if my unique style of therapy may be a good fit for you.
