Working with a COUPLES SPECIALIST gives you the BEST CHANCE to heal your relationship so you can feel safer, more trusted and more loved.

“Love me when I least deserve it, because that’s when I really need it.”


My practice is completely on serving couples. Working with couples can be challenging and intense when compared to individual counseling. Specializing in couples makes a real difference.


I am passionate about the work I do, and have consciously chosen to make this my lives’ work. I truly enjoy serving couples — and hope that it shows! Don't settle for a therapist who may not be able to offer what you truly need.


I have received specialized training in couples therapy as part of my Doctorate of Clinical Psychology (PsyD) and Master's in Counseling Psychology (MA). I am also licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and teach marriage therapy to graduate students as an Adjunct Professor.


In order to improve in any area in life, it is important to practice the fundamentals. Most couples think that this doesn't apply to relationships but, actually, it is not different at all. There are fundamentals and skills we can (and must!) practice if we want a lasting loving relationship. I offer lots of training exercises that are designed for couples. You will be trained on how to use them to interact with each other in new healthier ways.


Many therapists work with you in their office and just hope you can "remember" the experience. With me, you will walk out of my office with clearly explained tasks to attempt on your own. Couples find that this makes a huge difference in their progress. 


I enjoy helping neurodiverse couples find ways to heal and find connection. This is a meaningful part of my practice that requires experience and a specialized approach.


I use scientifically-validated psychotherapy techniques for couples (an integration of Emotion-focused Therapy, Gottman and Imago) which have been proven effective through decades of research with thousands of couples. There are no guarantees but having an experienced couples therapist applying an evidence-based approach gives you a realistic chance to reach your goals.


I create a safe healing environment to deal with extremely challenging situations such as a devastating affair, uncontrolled anger, sexual wounding, verbal or physical abuse, harsh co-parenting conflicts, high-intensity arguing, a painful divorce, isolation due to a neurodiverse relationship, and even the loss of a child.


I believe in a loving and just God and am affiliated with the Christian Counseling Center; however, bringing your faith into therapy is COMPLETELY your choice. My aim is to serve you as a trustworthy resource for professional care whether you have a faith background or not.


Being married for 35 years and having raised children to adulthood, my work with you is built upon decades of real life experience, not just textbook knowledge.
