My primary area of expertise is in working with people who would like to create a healthy relationship from the start. I know how challenging this can feel when so many seem to do it effortlessly. The truth is, we all have challenges when it comes to marriage. Some of us have a harder time finding love, others have challenges that arise later on. It is my greatest hope to get people into the best place possible to invite a really great relationship and keep it going.

I work with my clients to clear the palates from previous negative relationships that may be blocking the way. We look at what has previously worked and what hasn't so that you can make informed decisions and feel empowered in your search for a partner.

For people just starting out, I work through potential relationship challenges, to clear away potential relationship cobwebs. Imago therapy and Gottman theory often provide an excellent base for teaching great relationship building skills.
I also use the Prepare Enrich program to help identify relationship strength and growth areas.

Doing couples work can feel challenging. It is so enriching to be able to work with people to create a relationship that they can feel proud of. Laying a great foundation from the beginning paves the way towards being able to overcome common challenges that can plague any of us.
