About Me

I am a licensed counselor in the states of Florida and Virginia and life coach. I have been honing my skills for over 20 years. Most couples have challenges in their relationships and can struggle with finding ways to communicate respectfully and honor each other while also being true to themselves. This can sound impossible.

Yet it is possible to overcome difficulties in your relationship, to find ways to parent together, to enjoy time together again without endless conflicts. I do this through components of family systems therapy and concepts taught by the Gottman Institute. I find that most often couples are having trouble due to demands on their partner that seek compromises that do not work rather than finding a way to respect differences that are often the result of innate differences between men and women. Understood, these differences enhance the relationship rather than tear it apart.

I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including mental health challenges suffered by a partner, parenting and life transitions. You will be treated with respect , compassion and sensitivity. My goal is to get to the core of whatever is bothering you and help you find satisfaction with your choices and feel that you and your partner are living in accordance with your values and on a path to your highest potential in your life rather than simply surviving day to day.

In the end, however, it is not a technique that resolves problems but that you find fresh strategies to enable you to transform blocks and limitations into creative energy, calm, and confidence. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support: to equip you with new skills and cheer on each new success. I look forward to working with you!
