Deciding to share your life with someone can be both exciting and scary.

Most couples experience conflict at some stage of their relationship, whether it’s while you are dating, after years of being together, or after a significant change like moving, having children or a change in career.  The truth is that you are stronger together and it is not as hard as you may think to achieve the necessary balance in your relationship.  

I enjoy working with couples at all stages of their relationship and have happily worked with couples of diverse sexual orientation and gender identity. I believe it is important to work with couples individually and together to identify their biggest needs and goals for the relationship. If you are struggling in your relationship, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Often counseling can provide clarity and help you learn new and healthier ways to deal with conflict in your relationship. It can also help prepare you for all of life's changes which are seemingly always around the corner.  Few things in life are more important than your relationship with your partner, make it a priority.

Dynamics for Healthy Families

The biggest risk to the health and well-being of a family is a lack of communication and understanding.  

To work together towards common goals requires us to understand each other.  A family works the same way, every member must feel included, understood and valued.

My focus when working with families is to look at the health of the whole family as well as each individual member.  I have worked with families from all kinds of backgrounds.  I understand that 'family' means something different to everyone and I would welcome you and your family.

Being part of a healthy family reduces feelings of stress, anxiety and depression.  A rising tide lifts all boats and I work to make every member of a family as strong and self-assured as possible.  When we believe in and care for each other anything is possible.

Sometimes the best way to express what you are feeling is through creation.

If you struggle with putting into words how you feel or have experienced trauma, I can show you ways to communicate your feelings through creative expression.

As a photographer, I know first hand how powerful creativity can be in your life.  I have seen my clients recognize what they are feeling and begin to heal their old wounds by sparking their creative mind.

Building self-awareness and a sense of identity can be achieved when you stop thinking and just create.  You can expect to learn more about yourself, your goals and your experiences.

Life Transitions

John Lennon once said, "Life is what happens while you are making plans".  

We can't plan for everything that happens to us, but we have control over how we respond to it.  Whether it is a transition in your career, relationship, identity or your place in the world, discussing how you are affected and navigating for your future can help.

Most of my clients come in with a major life transition whether that is what brought them to therapy or not.  Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Therapy, I can help prepare you for anything that life throws at you.

Change happens all the time in life.  You can find happiness by embracing change and learning ways to grow.
