“I’ve learned more from you in 2 sessions than I’ve learned from other therapists in 5 years. It feels so good to finally be making progress. It helps to have a clear understanding of myself and my partner. This is change that will last.”    – AP, 38-year-old


Private. Trustworthy. Effective.

Marriage Counseling Madison       I KNOW…

It can be a challenge to get started with therapy for many reasons including time, intimidation, money, embarrassment, it seems like a selfish investment, or you may try to convince yourself that doing something different just on your own will relieve the need for therapy.

When you arrive,

please let yourself into the private, cozy waiting room…

Help yourself to a glass of cold water or a cup of hot tea/coffee and relax in a recliner.

Enjoy the soothing sounds of waterfalls and bubbling brooks. 

I will call you in when your therapy room is ready.

No check-in necessary.


First and foremost, my approach is non-judgmental and non-shaming.

My personality is very caring, interested, relaxed, and down to earth. I really do want to hear about what is weighing heavily on you. My office is your therapy space and provides a very safe environment to discuss difficult topics of any kind.  Marriage Counseling Madison

What you are looking for?

Advice? Direction? Need someone to simply listen? You might know exactly what you want to accomplish and need support in getting there, or you may need help exploring what’s wrong and what’s next for you in life. Either way, I am your enthused co-pilot!

Some of our sessions will bring immediate change, like feelings of relief or confidence. And you’ll love that the majority of the tools and skill-building we discuss are simple and NOT TIME INTENSIVE, therefore you can easily sustain these outside of our time together.



Remember, engaging in therapy is a phenomenal expression of self-care and HIGHLY ENCOURAGED in order to be the very best version of yourself (e.g. the best spouse, employee, parent, etc).  

You will benefit from therapy regardless of the magnitude of your concerns and whether or not you stay in or leave a relationship.

I can’t stress enough, SELF-CARE IS NOT SELFISH.

Only you can do it for yourself, which is good news!

You aren’t reliant on someone or something else to create the best version of yourself!

You will be glad you made an appointment!


Therapy makes your growth, healing and change easier, more focused, and much more efficient than doing it alone.



Accessible. My clients really value that I am easily accessible via phone, text, and email in between our sessions so they get prompt support when a significant challenge arises.

Immediate. Appointments are typically available within two weeks. Crisis appointments are usually accommodated within 24-48 hours.

Digital. If proximity or time constraints makes in-person visits a challenge we can meet via Zoom (HIPAA compliant), Skype, or FaceTime (not HIPAA complaint).

Flexible. Sessions are 60, 75, or 90 minutes (longer by request). If we hit a great stride near the end of our scheduled time and both our schedules allow, we can continue our appointment to maximize your progress.

Private. My cozy therapy room is located in a low-profile, quiet building on the near west side of Madison (adjacent to Hilldale Mall). Your personal information and the content of our sessions are kept confidential; unlike HMOs/larger clinics my practice is not subject to annual state audits where client files are reviewed by state personnel.

Solution-Focused. Many of my clients are looking for input, direction, and solutions. My approach to therapy is practical and expedites your change process.

Because your comfort is a priority, I will do my best to provide it. Please ask for what may help you!  Marriage Counseling MadisonMarriage Counseling MadisonMarriage Counseling Madison
