There are times in life when we feel stuck and frustrated. We know things can be better but are unsure as where to began and how to improve. Sometimes we see the same patterns happen over and over in our lives but feel powerless to find solutions. Knowing when to ask for help is often the important first step.
I provide a supportive therapeutic setting enhanced by ethics, competence, wisdom and sensitivity. I understand the courage it takes to be vulnerable and face pain and uncertainty. Your unique desired outcome and individual needs are explored. We will deconstruct perceptions and obstactles that are holding you back and tap into your resources and strengths to empower you to create long-term change. My approach is warm and caring as I want you to foster self-compassion. Witnessing my clients' experiences and watching them reach their goals makes me feel so blessed to be in my career.
The ones we love the most are truly the ones who can make us the angriest! Every relationship goes through growth-provoking challenges, especially when time is short and life is demanding. Our closest relationships teach us our largest and most painful lessons.
We all want to feel understood. As resentment builds, compassion and understanding for our partner dissolves. Couples often find themselves in unhelpful conflict patterns that seem to get them nowhere. You can learn skills to hear your partner in new ways. You can even experience what it is like to be truly heard and undersood. You both have to be willing to learn and to grow. Recognizing how painful it can be to feel vulnerable, I provide couples with a safe environment to explore the tangles. If you find the courage to do the work necessary to heal your relationship, I will ensure a warm but respectfully challenging setting to support you both to feel loved and cherished again.
I draw from many years of experience working with couples. My approach is informed by evidence-based treatment modalities. Couples untangle unhealthy patterns and growing resentments and replace them with reliable relationship tools. Conflict triggers are explored and couples learn how to nurture and rekindle their intimacy and their friendship, leading them to solid and lasting change.
The ones we love the most are the ones who can truly make us the angriest!
