Are you frustrated in your current relationship? Do you and your partner seem to have the same arguments over and over again? Are you tired of making improvements that do not last?
If your partner tells you things aren’t going well, pay attention! Don’t dismiss their complaints. Don’t wait until it’s too late! I can help.
I specialize in couples counseling and am a Certified Gottman Couples Therapist. I aim to help couples build a stronger relationship and develop healthier ways to cope with issues. I have 20 years of experience working with new couples, blended families, same sex couples, and couples who have been together for over 30 years who are seeking assistance.
My specialty is guiding couples, children, and their families to have strong relationships and put one another first as they progress through their life journey. There are many transitions a family goes through during their journey from dating, marriage, and having children to empty-nesters and retirees. There are families with same sex parents, single parents, divorced parents, blended families, families experiencing mental illness or addiction, and career changes.
Whichever stage you and your family are in, I can equip you with the tools you need to love, respect, and support one another along the way.
The work I do with divorcing families is brief, solution-oriented, and supportive. I assist with the transition from the spousal relationship to a co-parenting relationship and divorce partnership. I also educate and prepare clients for the successful negotiation of a divorce settlement agreement, including a parenting plan.
My hope for divorcing parents is that they will maintain a loving environment for their children. I strive for parents to put the children's needs before their own agenda. This work is done by helping parents shift their focus away from individual adult issues and towards their children's developmental needs instead.
Family Solutions Counseling
I specialize in guiding and counseling couples and families through their life journey. Whether you are a new couple looking for tools to build a solid foundation or a couple in crisis looking for a life raft, I am here for you. If you and your children are transitioning through divorce or are a newly blended family, I help family members heal while finding balance and harmony within the new family structure.
I am a Certified Gottman Couples Therapist and specialize in couples counseling. Couples in healthy marriages have a deep friendship, are able to manage conflict, and have a shared purpose. They do small things often for one another, help each other realize dreams, and put each other first. I help couples regain fondness and admiration, recognize bids for connection, solve solvable problems and overcome gridlock.
In my work with children, I help them resolve issues on their level. Families play an important role in children's healing processes. The interaction between children's problems and their families is always complex. Sometimes children develop problems as a way of signaling that there is something wrong in the family. Other times the entire family becomes distressed because the child's problems are so disruptive. In all cases, children and families heal faster when they work together.
