Individual Therapy

Sometimes change occurs as a result of having someone listen to us non-judgmentally and help us gain a better understanding of ourselves and our thoughts and feelings. Sometimes it is a result of changing long-standing patterns of thinking or behaving, thus leading to increased feelings of happiness, peace, and security. Individual therapy can be a very effective way of increasing self-awareness and beginning to intentionally create the life you want.

Couples Therapy

Few things in life bring as much fulfillment as our relationships. Isn’t life much richer when we share it with someone we love and trust? We all know that relationships also have the potential to bring much discontent and strife when they aren’t going well. Couples counseling is aimed at meeting each couples’ needs, whether it’s understanding and resolving conflicts, improving the connection in the relationship, communicating better, negotiating differences, problem solving or learning to argue in a healthier way. Sometimes the need is healing after a painful event or period in the relationship. When working with couples, I aim to create a neutral atmosphere focused on improving communication and coping skills to bring a greater level of intimacy and relationship satisfaction.
