You might ask what would be the point of individual therapy with someone who is a marriage and family therapist? Well, I have an answer: I am a relationship expert and what brings people into therapy more often than not has to do with relationships. I know what makes a relationship work and I know what makes them fail. Whether you are challenged by a familial relationship or a romantic one, let me help guide you in how to make them strong! Believe it or not, people can change the dynamic in their marriages and in their families by making changes in their own behavior. However, even if the people in your lives do not want to change along with you, individual therapy can help you figure out how to be content and, sometimes, help guide you when making difficult choices or initiating change.

“Real life romance is fueled by a far more humdrum approach to staying connected. It is kept alive each time you let you spouse know he or she is valued during the grind of everyday life.”
– John Gottman
“It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.”
