Starting a marriage with effective communication tools and a strong sense of trust to begin a healthy marriage. Using the world-renowned Gottman Method, I help you and your partner learn how to avoid the 4 Horsemen of Failed Relationships and how to apply the 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work into your own relationship.
I am trained in Gottman methodology and I use Gottman concepts in my work with couples. I am also Certified Educator for Seven Principle workshop. Dr. Gottman’s approach emphasizes couples’ strengths, skill-building for mutual happiness, and the development of a shared meaningful future.

I believe in the relationship of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and have experience in identifying and challenging various aspects of these interrelated concepts to help you transition toward a more peaceful life.
I support my clients in identifying personal changes they would like to make and developing strategies to work towards goals. I assist clients in identifying their core values and living a life consistent with those values.
My work with families focuses on the unique challenges of: divorce/separation, involvement with the foster care system, the effect of children on the couples' relationship, co-parenting and shared custody, the birth of a child, blended families and behavior challenges . I apply Positive Parenting strategies and Attachment based theories.
Individuals grow in relationships and I am interested in helping couples develop loving, constructive and creative relationship environment in which growth can flourish in satisfying ways. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. I utilize evidence-based Gottman methodology when working with my couples.
I have specialized skills for working with those impacted by trauma or loss and struggling with relationships, anxiety, and depression. I help adults and couples heal wounds of the past, contact their strength, and create opportunities for authentic, satisfying lives.
