I see myself as an emotional fitness trainer. I can help you fine tune your communications skills, work on assertiveness, and improve self-esteem. I enjoy couple’s work–helping each learn to understand and meet the other’s needs, therefore enhancing the satisfaction of both. I can help stressed and depressed individuals learn ways to take better care of themselves as they begin to listen to their bodies. I have over 20 years experience as an Employee Assistance Professional, specializing in solution-focused therapy.
I specialize in codependency, marital issues, parenting concerns, communication problems and substance abuse. I offer individual, couples, family and group counseling for adults and adolescents.
I believe that life is a journey–a series of problems–and that talking with an objective listener can help with the challenges encountered along the way.
As an AASECT certified sex therapist since 2005, I enjoy helping adults re-ignite excitement and be more comfortable sexually. Michael Cranston, LCMFT, CST, and I work with some couples as a husband and wife coaching team to take on relationship dynamics, communication problems and intimacy concerns.
Life can be challenging, whether planned or unexpected. Trauma and loss can sometimes be overwhelming as we learn to navigate those life stressors. Careers and relationships can require attention and children are learning their way in this world. In working with an individual, couple or family, I offer an approach that values your experiences and strengths while supporting you to develop new skills and empower change. Making that first call demonstrates that you are motivated to make a change and that is an act of courage.
