"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step." -Lao Tzo


Thanks for visiting my site!


With over fifteen years of clinical experience, I help people navigate the stormy seas of complicated relationships. Weather you are involved with a manipulative partner,  struggling in your marriage, dealing with infidelity, considering uncoupling, starting over, or grieving the loss of the one you love,  I can help you get to the heart of the matter so that you can heal and  make loving and authentic choices for yourself.

As human beings, we thrive when we feel connected to others.  For some, connection does not come easily and intimacy poses many challenges. I can help you understand why that might be and how to change it.  Whether you are struggling with a personal or professional relationship, I can help you turn whatever blocks and obstacles that you are experiencing  into grand opportunities for personal growth, wisdom, and a deeper sense of aliveness with both yourself and your partner.  It IS possible to have happy, healthy, fun, playful and passionate relationships in your life, it that is what your heart desires.

Though where you find yourself right now as you consider coming to therapy may not at all be where you thought you would be, you are where you are. With a willingness and openness to learn, heal and grow, the sky is the limit for you and I want to help you find that!

I very much look forward to working with you.


P.S. I am very proud to announce the release of my first book: Finding Hope in the Crises: A Therapist's Perspective on Love, Loss and Courage this spring.
