Though I have the education of and credentials of a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Indiana, my work is best described as coaching. With a Ph.D. in Clinical Sexology, Certification as an Imago Therapist, and the completion of all three training levels with the Gottman Method, I believe in education. What I do not believe in, however, are labels - which is the organizing principle behind what is commonly known as "mental health," and also referred to as counseling, therapy, and psychotherapy. 

Coaching is my preferred modality. The focus in coaching is on how you wish to feel and what you wish to experience, without emphasis on diagnosis and "treatment." We work together to clarify the gap between where you are and where you wish to be, so we can align your thoughts, actions, and choices with the experiences and goals you wish to move toward. As your coach, I will provide relevant resources, information, and guidance, as well as homework, and other strategies to assist you in making progress toward your goals. 

In addition to individual and couples counseling and coaching, I also offer relationship-changing couple's weekends for lesbian couples. (For more info about the Lesbian Couples Retreats)

My ultimate goal is to support you as you journey toward living the life you desire.
