Graduate Student Intern
Are you and your partner feeling lost in your relationship? Does it feel like you cannot communicate the same way you used to? Do you feel something is missing? Are you feeling stressed or anxious? Do you feel like it is stopping you from being you? Is this affecting the people you care about?
Often it can be difficult to take that first step in getting the help we need. I understand how sacred our relationships are to us and opening up to someone can be difficult. The key finding of the Harvard Longevity Study, the world's longest study on health and aging, is that good relationships keep us happier and healthier. Relationship satisfaction is tied to better moods, dealing with physical pain, and overall health. This is why I am passionate about helping couples, families, and individuals create the necessary conditions to achieve health and happiness. I understand that every journey is unique and I celebrate the personal differences that each client brings to therapy.
Utilizing best practice and research driven methodology, we will collaboratively find your path to healing and wholeness. I have experience working with couples, families, adolescents and adults. I consider it a privilege to walk beside you on this part of your journey.
