For the past 10 years, I have been practicing as a licensed therapist, offering premarital classes and counseling, in addition to relationship, marriage, family and individual counseling. After taking two years off to raise my young children full-time, I am returning to providing premarital classes to couples.
Nowhere in our development do we learn how to have a successful relationship or marriage. I enjoy helping individuals and couples gain education, skills, and confidence to have lasting, fulfilling relationships, while having fun at the same time.
I have advanced training and clinical supervision in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, a highly effective approach for Couples Therapy, and I am certified in Prepare/Enrich, a well-respected approach for premarital and post marital education. I have completed training in Imago Relationship Therapy as well as the Gottman Method, two well-known approaches in Couples Therapy. To best assist couples who are also parents, I am also a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator. When I am not helping couples and relationships, I love being with my husband and my two sons.
