About Me

For 25 years I have had the privilege to help people navigate difficult passages in their lives, in a variety of settings. As a Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice for 14 years, I have a great deal of experience working with couples. I utilize several of the leading approaches to couples counseling and will tailor my approach to your particular situation. I have also led blended family groups and have experience in navigating the complex emotional terrain of blending families and step parenting.
Participating in a healthy committed relationship can be one of the most fulfilling experiences in life; conversely a relationship in trouble can be very difficult. A toxic relationship can be very harmful, and has even been shown to adversely affect physical health. As intimacy grows, the deepest parts of your psyche - attachment styles from your family or origin – can be activated. Having your partner support you and love you as you reveal these parts, can be very rewarding. On the other hand, some couples can be helped by making simple behavioral changes.

Whatever your particular challenges might be, I wish you the best, and if you choose me to be your therapist, I look forward to working with you.

John is an excellent counselor. He is compassionate, but will keep me on track if needed as well. I appreciate his compassionate listening skills, but also the ability to call people on their stuff if needed. That is courageously, not many counselors take that chance. He is well read and educated in the field of psychology which is helpful to gain greater insight into my issues. I highly recommend him. I feel as though I am healing more, feeling more at peace and gaining more insights. Thank you for having this service available on the internet. It is so convenient with my busy schedule.
