Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Life is demanding, relationships can be challenging, parenting can be overwhelming. It may seem impossible to find the balance of taking care of ourselves, our relationships, and our loved ones. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I help people build on their strengths and learn new ways to cope with their feelings, improve their relationships by talking to each other with kindness, resolving conflict respectfully. My goals are to provide a caring counseling relationship in which you feel heard, and to help you learn the science-based skills to reach your goals. My expertise is working with adults to help them manage stress, put self-care into practice, and do the things which bring them joy. With over 30 years of experience, I help couples who want to build a closer loving relationship based on mutual respect and positive communication. I also provide parenting education and coaching to guide parents in raising their children thoughtfully and positively. Please call to schedule a free 15 minute initial phone consultation on how we may work together towards your goals. If you have a Faith Tradition or Spirituality that guides your life, we can include this in our work together. I look forward to speaking with you.
