  • PLEASE NOTE: I am ONLY a network provider for Beacon Health Options insurance (formerly "ValueOptions", which some may access through Kaiser). For all other insurance plans, I take full payment at the time of service and can provide a SuperBill for the patient to seek out-of-network reimbursement directly from insurance.

I specialize in working with couples. My approach in couples therapy is fair, kind and collaborative. Often couples that come to me for help have found themselves locked in a pattern of relating that leads again and again to the problems they are hoping to address in couples therapy. I help couples identify and alter these patterns, often with insight into how they developed in the first place. We might also explore the connection between these patterns and each partner’s experience of early formative relationships. I work with couples to address a variety of goals or challenges, some of which might include:

• improving communication
• establishing a strong and loving relationship
• frequent fighting and arguing
• pre-marital counseling
• relationship problems
• sexual problems
• parenting
• managing a separation or divorce
• recovering from affairs
• negotiating new life circumstances, such as marriage, child birth, fertility challenges, “empty nest”, blended families, major financial changes

This list is by no means exhaustive. I encourage you to contact me to discuss your particular interest in and goals for couples therapy or consultation. I am always happy to offer referrals or other resources if we should determine that I am not the person best suited to help with your particular situation.
