A crisis can be an opportunity to build intimacy instead of breaking it. Couples often get caught in cycles of negative behaviors and poor communication leading to hurt, frustration, disappointment, and mistrust.

I work with couples to identify the circles they are trapped in and provide tools to build or repair their connection and intimacy.

No one gets married to get divorced, and yet most marriages either end or are unhappy. This can happen because no one ever teaches us how to stay connected or have a healthy relationship.

I can help premarital or newlywed couples improve the quality of their relationship and honor their vows.

What To Expect

My therapeutic style is generally very active and solution-focused. I usually meet with clients 2-4 times per month, and I follow a simple formula for helping you achieve your goals.


Identify your primary goals, potential barriers, and then create a plan of action


Learn personal techniques and skills to make positive changes and become independently successful


Make sure you are on track and modify program as needed
