Change can be hard! Grief can result from any loss; a loved one, a job, a pet, a relationship. Changes, like those caused by illness in yourself or others, moving to a new city, or family changes like divorce or blending lives can bring up a lot of emotions. It can make you feel sad, overwhelmed, angry, hurt, confused, lost, and any other number of emotions. Processing all of the feelings associated with loss or a life transition in a safe place can be extremely beneficial.
Your brain never turns off. You have back up plans for your back up plans. You fear you will say the wrong thing or disappoint people.

I am a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator. This assessment tool is useful for couples preparing for marriage as well as those wishing to enrich their relationships. This can be used as a one-off "report card" for your relationship or as a great starting point for traditional relationship therapy.
I offer an accepting, non-judgmental environment no matter what your relationship looks like. There is no "one size fits all" when it comes to love and sexuality. I aim to get to know the unique dynamics of your relationship and help you meet your goals. From heterosexual monogamous couples to CNM, LGBTQ+, and those who hate labels: All are welcome.
When I work with relationships, I typically meet with all participants for the first session to identify what you are hoping to achieve through therapy, get a sense of how you interact, and gather information on any presenting issues and concerns you may have. I then utilize one individual session for each member of the relationship in order to gather more information and personal history. Once I have met with you individually, I bring everyone back together to propose a treatment plan and discuss next steps.
