What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I am passionate about couples/marital counseling. I have been trained in The Gottman Method and am in the process of completing certification. The Gottman Method is an evidence-based model developed out of over 40 years of research. Using this method I have great confidence that I can support you through your relationship challenges and if you are committed, I can teach you the new skills you may be in need of to create a healthier, happier union. It is important to know that some of these sessions will be recorded, with your written consent. I can discuss this with you in more detail if you are interested. Whether you and your partner have recently run into issues or have been long-suffering or simply want to learn some preventive skills to continue thriving, help is near. The initial session is an oral interview for me to learn about the history of your relationship and assure you feel comfortable moving forward working together. If you do, I will email you an online questionnaire, which will show me the strengths and growth points within your relationship. Please note, the questionnaire is a separate fee of $29. If you are ready to find some true solutions to your relational problems, I am ready to support you.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

Therapy can be scary! First and foremost, I do not take lightly the responsibility of being your safe place. When working with couples, it's important to know that I don't take sides. It's likely that you've already felt unheard in your romantic relationship. When working with me, I will help you move beyond the petty arguments and surface level issues into meaningful conversations about your heart needs. You will walk away with the ability to truly be vulnerable with your partner, effectively express your individual needs to one another, and the skills to reignite your passion & connection. You will not only gain knowledge backed by research but also tools to reach for to help change your relationship experience.

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I am compassionate, committed, and optimistic. These characteristics show themselves in the work I do as I am always present in the moment with you. I see you, will meet you where you are but also challenge you and hold you accountable for where you want to go. Whether I am working with you doing individual counseling or couples counseling, I will ride the wave of life with you as long as you are willing to do the work. I bring patience, endurance, and understanding to every session. I believe in living life on purpose, as you walk in purpose. As I am intentional in the efforts I make to support you, I aim to teach you intentionality to reach your goals.
