I have a passion to help others improve their relationships! The marriage relationship can be the most important one of our lives. Whether you just want to keep your relationship on the right track, or you are experiencing serious relationship problems, couples therapy can help you. You don’t have to be stuck in an unhappy relationship, feeling like things will never change or get better.
Services I offer include:
- Premarital or pre-engagement therapy for couples preparing for marriage (eligible for $60 reduction on marriage license fee)
- Marital enrichment for couples who want to build on their strengths
- Marital therapy for couples with problems such as communication, conflict resolution, intimacy, family relationships, parenting, household responsibilities, and infidelity
- Sex therapy to improve sexual intimacy and overcome sexual problems or dysfunctions, including the effects of purity culture
I completed my doctoral dissertation (a two-year long research project and book) on couples therapy, entitled “Grace and Trust in Hope-Focused Couples Therapy“. My approach focuses on increasing hope, building trust, intimacy, and communication skills, and forgiving hurts and offenses in the relationship.
I am currently undergoing Level 1 training in the Gottman Method, which is an evidenced-based and highly respected approach to improving couples approach to conflict, build friendship, and enhance shared meaning.
