Do you feel utter loneliness because of the lack of intimacy in your marriage? Are you a mother who feels feels overwhelmingly lost as to what your daily purpose is now that your children have transitioned to school? Do you feel trapped at home with your newborn while you fight a depression that is darker than anything you have ever experienced?  Are you feeling hopeless and sad about not having yet found a realtionship and/or a satisfying career?

I know how you feel.  I know this not only as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, but as a woman, a wife, and a mother. In addition to my 10+ years of clinical practice, my most powerful training has been my own personal journey in this complicated world we all live in.  Whether it be work life, marriage, pregnancy, postpartum, motherhood, or loss of any kind of loss, I am present to support you through whatever challenge you face.

I believe in therapy and I believe in the work I can do with you.

To find out more about my psychotherapy services for adults and couples, please visit my private practive website and for those of you who are ready to lock your husband in a closet, I invite you to visit Be the Smart Wife and sign up for my monthly posts about the trials and tribulations of surviving your marriage in a smart way.
