Welcome. If you are looking at this website, then I imagine that you are looking for help. Help because…

  • You find yourself running up against the same challenges in your life over and over again.

  • You feel disconnected or isolated from your spouse or loved ones.

  • You feel overwhelmed by the chaos of anxiety or the weight of depression.

  • You want to learn new, effective, and healthier ways of coping with stress.

  • You and your partner keep having the same argument in the same way, without any progress in sight.

  • You keep getting the same feedback from different people; your spouse, your friends, your family, or even your co-workers.

  • You feel like your marriage is falling apart or even on the brink.

  • You want to learn new ways to communicate and resolve issues.

  • Either you or your spouse has brought up the topic of divorce.

  • You are depleted and discouraged because this has gone on so long and you have little hope that things can really change.


We all have a deep desire to feel understood, confident, and hopeful. We all innately need to feel loved, cherished and connected. However, there are many things that can get in the way; anger, anxiety, depression, entrenched patterns, trauma, attachment wounds, lifestyle, expectations and disappointments….


Look, I get it. No one has time, money, or energy to waste. However, if you are looking at this website, then I imagine that you don’t want to waste any more time, money or energy living this way.

Guess what…you don’t have to!

With respect and compassion, I will help you recognize and identify the patterns and beliefs that are getting in your way. With warmth and insight, I will give you precise and direct feedback regarding these patterns and beliefs so that you can choose what you really want for your life and the life of your loved ones.

I agree, there is no time, money or energy to waste…so let’s get to work!  Contact me to set up a time to discuss your needs and the services I offer.



I have always had a passion for healing and transcending the challenges of life. I believe in the inherent goodness and light in each and every one of us. I believe in each person’s innate ability and desire to be their best self. Yet, I know that there are countless obstacles that get in the way of us connecting with our best self and ultimately connecting with our loved ones.


Drawn to the vocation of therapy, I completed a program in Human Services with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Services in 2005.  I was immediately drawn to working with couples. I recognized that couples therapy would create a challenging opportunity to help two individuals understand and heal their personal wounds providing space for them to connect more deeply with their loved ones, creating another whole, beautiful entity.


More recently, I completed 500 level yoga teacher training so that I might learn how to integrate mind and body techniques into therapy. I have learned that these techniques can provide another way to access your deepest desires and most entrenched deterrents to fulfilling those desires. Most commonly, I weave in breathing, meditation, imagery and even movement to give you specific tools to use at home for grounding, digesting, clarifying and transformation.


For the past 10 years, I have worked closely with Dr. Bill Doherty on projects aimed to support couples in their efforts to sustain stable intimacy and marriages. In 2008, I became the Project Coordinator for the Minnesota Couples on the Brink Project. I have been integral in developing and disseminating the Discernment Counseling protocol.
