In our therapy sessions, we’ll work together to understand how your interpretation of your experiences, and how you respond to them, impact your quality of life. We will explore new ways to find workable action to respond to painful thoughts and feelings while moving closer to what matters most to you. My approach to treatment focuses on increasing the insight and skills you need to live the life you want.
Healthy relationships are the bedrock of lasting marriages and strong families. In couples therapy we explore the dynamics of your relationship to identify patterns that are helping or hurting your relationships. I utilize Gottman Method Couples Therapy to assist you in creating greater love and health in your relationship. Whether you have been with your partner for many years or are seeking pre-marital counseling to get started on the "right foot", couples therapy can help build the relationship you desire.
Sex is a normal and healthy part of life. A derailment of your sex life, whether due to medical, psychological, relational, or situational factors, can significantly impact your quality of life. While sexual dysfunction can be highly distressing, it is both more common, and more treatable, than you might expect. I have specialized training from The Buehler Institute and am an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist for the treatment of male and female sexual dysfunctions. Whether you are experiencing decreased libido, performance difficulties, painful sex, or feeling sexually detached from your partner, therapy can be a valuable tool in improving your enjoyment and engagement in your sex life. Referrals for evaluation and medical treatment are offered as necessary.
Often, the best way to deal with a problem is to identify it before it begins. Information becomes our best tool to proactively address many of these potential problems. I offer a range of talks relating to relationships, communication, sexuality, men's health issues, and mental illness within a couple, among other topics. I cater each talk for a particular audience to ensure an engaging presentation which will optimize the opportunities for participants to walk away with lasting and meaningful knowledge. I also offer lectures on the psychology of magic and the psychology of belief, as a unique and fun way to learn about the real-world applications of psychology and neuroscience.
