I offer both individual and couples therapy. My work with individuals uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and this approach is heavily influenced by my training in Imago Couples Therapy. I also offer couples Imago therapy sessions
and weekend long retreats at Oak Crest Lodge, on scenic Peter’s Pond, in
I love to help individuals and couples when they feel stuck.
I find that when people feel connected and safe in their relationships, they
are able to deal more effectively with life's other stressors: work, finances,
and family. When you work with me, that's
what I will help you achieve and sustain.
Why work with me? I
believe that by the time someone has contacted me, they've been dealing with an
issue for quite some time. I want to help you quickly and without
judgement. My skills-based approach
empowers you and gets results.
IMAGO COUPLES WORKSHOP
The GETTING THE LOVE YOU WANT: A WORKSHOP FOR COUPLES
is a weekend long retreat based on theories and exercises from the NY Times Bestselling book
of a similar name by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. and Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D.
Imago Relationship Therapy
is a form of relationship and couples work that focuses on equipping partners to satisfy each other's unmet childhood needs so they can establish a broader sense of safety and grow in deeper connection with one another.
This workshop provides you with a distraction-free weekend focused on your relationship. You will learn to validate your conflicts, power struggles and frustrations as predictable and even necessary aspects of a committed relationship.
We will present, demonstrate and practice essential relational tools that will help resolve conflicts and move you to a more meaningful connection as a couple. You'll practice the skills that will allow you to increase safety and reduce reactivity in your relationship.
You will leave the workshop with a jointly created vision of what your ideal relationship will look like and knowledge of the tools necessary to take you on that journey.
