“Are you feeling unhappy with your relationship and don’t know how to get to better place? Or maybe you do know how to get to a better place, but can’t get your partner on board. I can help. From our first meeting, you will see that I have the gift of being able to see things that others often can’t. I’ll enter each of your worlds, understand the hurts and frustrations that have created distance between you, and then see hidden pathways that will bring you back together. Based on your individual needs and scientifically-proven strategies and skills, I’ll create an action plan that will take your relationship where you want it to go. You will love the level of detailed guidance that I offer. I am a relentless, optimistic, empathic problem solver that uses research, humor, and 19 years of experience working with individuals and couples to inspire and execute change. I’ll show each of you, step-by-step how you can navigate every twist and turn that happens in your relationship more effectively. Week by week, you’ll move closer to having the truly enjoyable relationship that you and your partner were meant to have.”
“Problem talk creates problems, Solution talk creates solutions.”
-Steve de Shazer
“Relationships are such that if one person changes, the relationship changes.”
“If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.”
