Prefer video? I've got a greeting for you here!
why do I do what I do?
I specifically decided to become a therapist when I learned of a condition called "vaginismus" that creates pain during sex for so many women - yet it is rarely discussed. Since then, I have found deep enjoyment in helping couples walk through the hardest parts of marriage - whether the difficulty be in intimacy, communication, or even an affair. It may sound odd, but I want to be with you in the most painful seasons of your life...to give you hope, and to show you how to make consistent improvements.
what's my therapeutic style?
I believe in challenge mixed with fun. Some sessions will be a stretch, as you learn new communication skills that you've never used before. Some sessions will be fun, focusing mainly on encouragement and affirmations for your progress. You set the pace, and I collaborate with you to set the feel of your therapy experience.
I work online or in-person with couples in the metro-Atlanta (or Suwanee, Georgia) area. Our sessions will involve

don't wait anymore. you need this.
you deserve to heal...finally
how often will we meet?
Make space in your schedule for weekly sessions for the first 4 to 6 weeks. This will give us a chance to really get the ball rolling and create new change.
Remember: if we're changing a pattern in your life or relationship that isn't working, we'll need to be very intentional on the front end to shift directions to something healthier!
After this, we move to biweekly sessions. This will give you time to practice what we've learned and experience change outside of therapy.
You'll know when you've met your goals. Trust me :) At this point, most clients will choose either monthly or seasonal sessions to maintain all of their hard work!
what can you expect?
