Focusing on change

Marriage-Individual-Relationship Counseling

Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, PTSD

Need to change your life and relationships for the better? I’m here to make it happen through warmth, support, and care. Let’s work together as I guide you toward a life full of joy and happiness.


Why change?

Life is complex, with demands on you, your relationships, and your time causing stressors that make your personal and work life seem overwhelming.

Headaches. Lack of sleep. No energy to spend time with loved ones. Maybe you’re not showing your best self to your spouse and are faced with the dreaded “We need to talk” conversation. You know that anxiety, depression, or past trauma is affecting your well-being, marriage, and meaningful relationships. It makes you feel as if you’ll never meet your own or others’ expectations or goals. DO YOU RECOGNIZE YOURSELF?

How do i make change happen?

GOOD NEWS. THERE ARE SOLUTIONS. There isn’t one magic technique that fits everyone, but my 35 years of experience working with couples and individuals allows me to find personalized approaches that work best for each one.

During my career, I’ve helped military couples through the uniquely challenging circumstances that these families face. It became clear that common mental health issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, and PTSD were negatively impacting marriages. In many cases, significantly troubled marriages were creating states of anxiety and depression, as well as possibly leading to traumatic situations and PTSD.

ART Therapy

Accelerated Resolution Therapy is a peer reviewed evidenced based eye movement therapy. It has been found to be effective in treating trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, grief, phobias, self-esteem issues as well as numerous other problems. ART can produce fast and rapid change, frequently in as little as 1-5 sessions.

Icon Trauma Therapy

Trauma Treatment

These mental health issues keep you locked in your past or frozen in fear of moving forward. Your daily supply of energy is consumed by distressing emotions and memories or visions of future failure. Your own inner critic’s voice never seems to quiet; even during sleepless nights it continues to berate you. It has convinced you that this is who you are and that this is how your life will always be.

Healing can happen by working together

As a Marriage and Relationship counseling specialist and brain-based therapist, my clients have benefitted from traditional psychotherapy, plus techniques and methods based on the latest research. I use significant advances in tools, methods, and modalities to support change for my clients, including Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Brainspotting (BSP), and Mindfulness Training. Documented research in marriage and relationship counseling (Gottman) and Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) have also provided proven tools to enhance your life, your marriage, and your relationships.
