Relationships that stand the test of time.
Online counseling for couples and individuals
With such a high divorce rate and the pressure to make it work, it's not easy to figure out what ingredients are necessary for love and relationships to truly last.You could be feeling overwhelmed right now with this pressure to be one of those couples that grow old together and feel happy long-term. I've known many singles who don't feel confident enough to date because of this same pressure. It can be intense!! Common feelings I hear about this type of relationship pressure:
• worried that you will repeat your parents mistakes
• feeling like you are not on the same page with your partner
• unsure if you are a good fit together
• desire for long term happiness but unsure how to get it
As your therapist, I will walk you through the steps to have healthy conversations and a deep meaningful connections based on the latest research. So you won't have to worry about what's important and what's pure myth.

Having come from a military family who lived on military bases and moved frequently, I saw many struggling relationships in my youth. I was so confused as to why so many people seemed to struggle with love and connections. Once I realized my passion was in helping people, I wanted to learn as much as I could about it. It was studying about stress and relationships that I found peace. I learned that love has some amazing research about why so many people struggle. What I learned is my family did not have the skills required to make it work and still feel happy. So, I got some training in the Gottman Method (a world renowned science based counseling) for couples and some extensive work in the physiology of stress. So now I use this in my own marriage. It doesn't magically make things perfect. We still have to work at it every day, but it's the only marriage I want to be in. My hope is that you can feel this way too. I won't preach things to you that I'm not willing to do myself. I have a relaxed and calm personality that most people say help them feel they have an advocate on their side.
