A relationship is a connection you share with someone special, where you're willing to do anything for the other person without thinking it's a compromise. There's never a compromise in a relationship, there's understanding between two people. Through counseling, you will learn how to talk to each other more effectively and to work through conflict more productively.
You will learn about patterns and “ruts” in which you and your significant other have become stuck. My goal is to help you learn how to build new, more satisfying ways of relating to each other. By understanding the dynamics of your relationship and learning how to interact with each other better, you will be more prepared to make thoughtful decisions about your relationship and to enjoy each other fully.

Conflicts are not a sign you’ve married the wrong person. They simply affirm you are human. Dr Gary Chapman
There are instances when life experiences often disrupt our sense of wholeness, leaving us feeling unable to find our way back to ourselves. When this happens, our lives and our relationships can become difficult, or even unbearable.
As your therapist I will help you challenge old habits while helping you understand how you formed those habits in the first place. Through insight and action, you will learn new skills and make positive changes in your life. Please know that you do not have to endure life’s difficulties alone.

Asking for help does not mean that we are weak or incompetent. It usually indicates an advanced level of honesty and intelligence.
Anne Wilson Schaef
There are life circumstances that not only impact an individual, but they can also cause stress for an entire family. Perhaps you are going through a divorce and you are concerned about how it will impact your children. Or maybe you are marrying someone who has children from a previous relationship and you would like to make sure you blend well as a new family. Still others of you may be grieving a family loss or you may be struggling with a family member who has an addiction or severe mental illness.
As your therapist I will help you use your strengths to your benefit while also helping you work on areas you may desire to improve upon. We will take a look at how your family tends to deal with emotions and problems. Family therapy is a great way to deepen your family’s relationships, and you can gain skills that can continue to help you beyond the end of your therapy sessions.

“Family” isn’t defined only by last name or by blood: it’s defined by commitment and by love. It means showing up when they need it the most. It means having each other’s backs. It means choosing to love each other even on those days when you struggle to like each other. It means never giving up on each other. Dave Willis
