I specialize in couples therapy. Whether you’re married, living together, or dating. Or maybe you’re divorced and need help co-parenting? I am trained in interpersonal relationship dynamics and processes. I’ve conducted research on couples and would love to help your relationship thrive.
I help people reconnect with their partner, rekindle the passion they once had, and redefine their relationship moving forward. I work WITH clients instead of for them. Your goals are my goals, and I have the training and experience to assist you in meeting those goals.
