Do stress and worry get in the way of your participating fully in life? Do you have trouble being yourself in relationships?

What to expect from the therapy process?
Some of the ways I help my clients is to alter negative thoughts, improve mood, reduce anxiety and stress, build more fulfilling relationships, adopt a more optimistic approach, and make better choices. My approach is tailored to each client’s needs, strengths and goals.
What to expect from the couples’ therapy process?
In the initial sessions, I ask the couple to talk about the difficulties that led them to seek to counsel. I want to understand not only your challenges but your strengths. As I get to know you, my feedback includes offering a new approach to your problems that you can practice at home. I help you to communicate better, fight less, and support each other more.
Throughout this process, I create a safe and neutral environment in which both partners feel heard and comfortable sharing their experience.

Reduced fees are often available for people who can’t afford my fee, including students and recent college grads. Most HMO plans do not reimburse for the fee.
For Couple Clients Seeking Couples Therapy
Is your relationship troubled by resentment, criticism, or silence? Do you feel like you’re walking on eggshells? Are you struggling to be heard and understood? Are you living like roommates rather than romantic partners? Is your relationship lacking sexual chemistry or vitality?

By creating a safe and neutral environment, I help couples work through the anger, disappointment and frustration that builds up through failed attempts at solving persistent problems. Together, we work to resolve these problems and rebuild the connection that brought you together.

Stop repetitive arguments
Listen and be heard
