You are probably asking who am I and how can I help you.
I’m someone who has a lifelong interest in understanding:
what makes us “tick” as human beings and what do we need to cultivate in ourselves to live a happy, fulfilled life.
I am particularly interested in helping people develop satisfying couple relationships. I was fortunate to grow up with Clare and Bernie, parents who modeled a loving relationship and to see relatives with strong, stable marriages.
My husband, also a psychotherapist, and I have been attentive to nurturing our marriage and it is a source of great blessing in my life - a blessing that I would like others to have as well.
In the course of my 25+ years of training and experience, I’ve integrated many learnings and skills that I’d like to share with you
