Couples in Crisis

Given the importance of marriage and family for most people, a relationship crisis can be one of the most difficult and high-stakes challenges faced. My best work is with couples who are worried about the future, for themselves and often for their children. Discernment Counseling will help you and your spouse explore what has happened in the relationship to lead to the crisis, and the possible, realistic solutions. Each person must decide the best solution, and then together put into place a quality plan to help the family be healthy for the future. I have been working with individuals and couples in relationships for 16 years.

Co-Parenting and Divorce

When the marriage ends, children’s well-being is the priority for most parents. I have experience working with these parents, along with Collaborative Divorce attorneys to help make a child-centered parenting plan, coach parents on what children need, and mediate parenting conflicts that get in the way of healing.

Individual and Family Therapy

I enjoy working with teens, adults, and family groups and intend my approach to be respectful and practical for every client.

Intensive Sessions

Intensive therapy sessions, 2-3 hours in length, are offered for couples, families or individuals. This can be helpful due a sudden crisis, wanting to make progress quickly early in therapy or just to better fit busy family’s schedules. Intensive sessions are not billable to insurance.
