Are you and your partner seeming distant from each other lately ? Does it always seem as if you are fighting and are never in agreement?


If you answered yes, then you have arrived at the right place. I help couples learn ways of saying what they mean in a non-violent , non-aggressive communication style. Often it is not because, two people just happen to fall out of love. No, it is quiet the very opposite. We sometimes grow and become comfortable in thinking our partners know what we are thinking and what we want, and that is just not always correct.


I help couples learn their love language and communication style. We will discuss attachment styles and ways to understand your partner from a stand point of empathy. Bringing clarity into your relationship is like clearing the slate for healthiness to happen. Allow me to join you on your journey into creating a fulfilled relationship! 

Couples Counseling 













There is power in numbers and I believe groups are a unique and powerful way to be amongst others who share a common goal... "to feel heard, understood, supported, validated and educated in a creative and therapeutic safe space.

As your group leader, we will establish a safe and supportive environment where individuals are empowered with each other to become their "greatest self'.  We will explore various ways to heal after trauma or ways to help family/friends who have experienced trauma, loss and grief. 


Groups sessions are Trauma-Informed and are designed to meet individuals where they are in their healing process. 


  • Narrative Therapy

  • Guided imagery 

  • Grounding 

  • Expressive arts

  • Growth and Resiliency

  • Mindfulness Based CBT
