I would like to start by saying that I am honored you are considering me as your couples therapist...
Sharing with me the personal details of your relationship and allowing me to help you work through the obstacles you and your partner are facing is not easy and I recognize that. Thank you for coming here to read more about me!
My particular interest in couples therapy was sparked after my own time pursuing counseling with my spouse both prior to and post-marriage. Being a counselor by trade does not mean that my own relationship doesn't face struggles, and because of my profession I understand the value in pursuing an unbiased opinion from a trained therapist.
After witnessing first-hand the benefits that my relationship reaped as a result of couples therapy, I became interested in gaining the education and experience to provide some of those same benefits for other couples.
I find couples therapy to be especially effective in helping each partner learn how to better communicate their perceptions and emotions in a healthy and productive way. In addition, couples learn how to recognize the wants and needs of their partner while sharing raw emotions in a "safe space" free of judgement and bias.
