Caring for individuals, couples, and families

Couples Counseling

  • Are you feeling tension, disconnect, or disappointment in your marriage? Maybe your marriage is pretty good, but you long to strengthen your bond and grow even closer to the one you love. Together we can work to heal and restore joy to your marriage that has been damaged by neglect, unhealthy conflict, infidelity, loss, or any other issue that is hurting your relationship. 

    • Feeling strain and lack of engagement?

    • Going through the motions, but longing for more from your marriage?

    • Wrestling with despair and considering a separation?

    • Struggling with forgiveness and rebuilding trust from past betrayals or unfaithfulness?

    • Considering pre-marital counseling to start your relationship on solid ground?

Anger Issues

  • Damaging expressions of anger can take many shapes and sizes. Whether you are aggressive in your tone or action, you bottle up and suppress your anger, or you engage in passive aggressive ways of relating, it is probably having a negative impact on your relationships. We often don't know what to do with our very real feelings of anger. In this confusion we hurt others and ourselves, but we are also left feeling misunderstood, isolated, and self-protective. I seek to help you understand the root of your anger in a way that promotes emotional resilience, so that you can express your anger in a healthy way that fosters deeper connection with family, friends, and coworkers.

Sexual Struggles

  • Sex is a wonderful gift from God in the context of relational intimacy, but we often use it to fulfill our needs in unhealthy ways. Sex can be used in an attempt to escape, avoid, numb, and provide a sense of validation. I work with individuals to help them understand their internal world of thoughts and feelings, so that they can discover how they have been using sex in their lives. You do not need to hide anymore, and you don't need to wrestle with these issues alone and in shame. Real help and community is available to you.

    • Wrestling with guilt, shame, or self-contempt?

    • Do you feel stuck in habitual sexual behaviors?

    • Pornography?

    • Questions of orientation and identity?

    • Do you long to be known, accepted, and desired by another?

If you have any questions or are looking for counseling about another issue, please reach out and I’d be happy to help any way I can.
