You are not alone in figuring out how you ended up where are at and deciding where you want to go. I'm excited to navigate this with you!
Every relationship comes with its fair share of issues. Navigating the complexities of life together is hard enough, but when you start to feel regularly distressed or hopeless, about your relationship, it may be time to seek professional help. No matter what your issues seem to stem from (disagreements about money, sex, stress, chronic illness, mental illness, infidelity, trust, emotional distance, parenting etc.), if you and your partner are arguing more frequently and experiencing feelings of resentment or contempt, it is likely that there are some underlying problems to address. Because many problems in relationships are a result of communication issues, a qualified mental health therapist can teach you to find new ways of talking to each other to help you find your way back to common ground.

My clients are successful individuals and couples who utilize my services to help them thrive at work and home. Typically, they are adapting to change, learning new communication strategies, building resilience, and healing their trauma. Many of my clients are leaders or change agents who are experiencing anxiety or depression related to work stress. Therapy helps them to build healthy coping practices to become more effective in their roles and to gain work/life harmony.
My clients are the coolest. Not that I'm biased. They're often kinky, within the LGBTQIA+ umbrella, in non-monogamous relationships, with some neurodivergence, and often are pretty sarcastic. Sometimes, they need support when it comes to their relationship(s), or when it comes to their sex life. Sometimes, they need help with anxiety and depression. Sometimes with their ADHD. As a team, we help to navigate the challenges and complexities of life.
We live in anxious times and anxiety is the primary symptom that most of clients come to therapy for. As I only see adults and couples, my clients tend to seek counseling when they are struggling with life transitions. My clients usually have come to the end of their own resources and know that they need extra help to manage their symptoms and to help them get through difficult times. Many of my clients are often working through grief and depression.
