Best Way of Reaching Me: Phone or Email is Fine
The reason I chose to specialize in marriage and couples counseling is….:

Families and Couples are the foundation of where we all have come from and maybe where most of us want to be. Sometimes those families or part of a couple were not healthy and happy and we then struggle to make our a place that is supportive, happy and healthy. Sometimes we need to learn those communication skills.

What you most enjoy about working with couples is….:

I love teaching couples skills, helping them build on their strengths and seeing them begin a new. I know the couple is hurting but sometimes hurt shows up in ways that aren't helpful and just helping them get to and understand that place of hurt allows them to understand, forgive and find love again.

Are there kinds of couples or issues that you work with a lot?:

I find I work with couples who have anger issues that derail the process. Their anger leaves them skeptical and contemptuous to their partner. Or their anger lets them stay behind walls where they don't have to be vulnerable. I like teaching them other ways to handle the frustration, disappointment and anger.

What are the steps to becoming a client in my practice?:

I try and respond to clients within 24 - 48 hours from when they reach out to me. I always call them back whether they call or email me because I want them to hear my voice. I discuss with them what days and times they might have open. I offer them a choice as to if they would like to come in for a 30 minute session to just ask me questions or find out more about me that is free. Or if, after speaking to me on the phone they are comfortable, we just make an appointment and begin with the initial session of 1 hour.
