The past 20 years of partnering with a wide range of people through times of struggle have taught me that we often underestimate our own resilience, or our resilience as a couple. It leads to worry, anger, depression, suspicion, guilt, frustration, loneliness, resentment, shame, panic... all the emotions we try so hard to avoid. Consider a teammate for this part of the journey to help you take greater control of your own growth. A partner who can listen intently, offer perspective, brainstorm with you, help you develop new insights and skills, and support you in making changes to create a life - or relationship - you love. I have two decades of experience seeing adults for individual therapy, Couples Counseling, and various divorce services: Divorce Consults, Collaborative Divorce, and Co-Parenting Therapy. I am trained through Level 2 in the Gottman Method and have served as a PC for NC Family Courts. I am on the Board of Directors for the Center for Cooperative Parenting. I use CBT, an empirically-validated approach for developing insights and skills, and blend it with other effective types of therapy. I have a direct and interactive style that is compassionate, nurturing, and team-focused. I help people know their own value. Starting therapy takes courage. When you're ready, call me to assess fit. You are worth it.
