About
Whether your relationship is out of balance, or you just want to build upon what you already have, I believe all couples can benefit from counseling / coaching. Together, we will discuss what is needed to create and maintain authentic, healthy relationships. We will dive into the mystery of your relationship, highlight the positive aspects, while dealing with the setbacks, and work toward tangible goals.

In therapy, I use proven counseling techniques combined with coaching skills to help you change your life. I have found this strategy effective for a wide range of couples, from newlyweds to those struggling because of work imbalance. I will join the couple in their relationship struggles to improve what is already a beautiful partnership and more importantly, help you stay in love. I have experience, and enjoy, working with same sex couples and all are welcome in my practice.

Relationship counseling and coaching includes:
Sexuality and Affection
Money and Finances
Creating a Shared Vision
Taking Risks
Making Decisions
Communication and Trust
Life Transitions
Balancing Time and Priorities

Gaining Work | Life Balance
Career Transitioning
Gaining Self Confidence and Self Esteem
Skill Building in areas like Time Management, Stress, and other Life Skills
Encouragement and Support
Building Self Worth
