  • Couples, PreMarital & Marital Counseling: I help couples develop long-lasting ability to love and be loved. More than just changing the way couples communicate with each other, couples counseling is about negotiating the boundaries between two people and their search for meaning as individuals and a couple.
  • Anxiety: Clients need help not just managing their anxiety, but exploring what it is and why it happens. I help clients understand what’s at the root of the panic and groundlessness that characterize anxiety.
  • Depression: Everyone feels sad or down sometimes, but not everyone experiences the extraordinary hopelessness and debilitating loneliness of depression. In the midst of depression, you feel like there is no solution, no way out, and no one to help. I help clients develop techniques to overcome symptoms of depression and develop a sense of meaning, purpose, and freedom.
