I take an empathic yet direct approach to working with individuals and couples. I can help with problems in relationships of all kinds: intimate, professional, family, caregiver. I believe that the quality of these relationships has a direct impact on our overall well-being. My goal is to help you enjoy full, respectful living.
My role is both therapist and coach, helping you with greater personal fulfillment and relational intimacy. My extensive training in Terry Real's Relational Life Therapy, Pia Mellody's Post Induction Therapy, and EMDR are the modalities that inform my practice.
Do you want to make improvements in a specific relationship?
There comes a time when many of us need outside help with our relationships. We may find ourselves in the same old fight, feeling the same bad feelings, or having thoughts of ending the relationship. Many of us can think of things in the relationship that, if they were only different, we would be much happier.
If you discover that the efforts you have made on your own to improve your relationship are not working, I know that I can help. I can help you identify the patterns of behavior that cause disconnection, and teach you skills to practice so you can relate differently - with love, compassion, understanding and empathy. Developing and using these skills leads to a greater sense of intimacy which in turn allows for deeper connections - spiritually, emotionally, psychologically, physically, and sexually.
Do you want to move forward in a certain area of your life?
My approach to therapy looks at past, present and future aspects of your life that are impacting the important relationships in your life: partner, spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, work, physical health, sexuality and spirituality. The goal of our work together is a greater awareness of self-in-relationship and sense of well-being.
Together we can improve your life
My therapeutic style is compassionately confrontative and directive. I have the tools and understanding to give you the boost you need to make thes steps happen.
I primarily practice using Terry Real's Relational Life Therapy, and am affiliated with the Relational Life Institute. This approach to therapy promotes relationship repair through holding people accountable for behaviors that damage the core of the relationship. I also use the EMDR therapeutic model for processing and relieving stress caused by anxiety and trauma.
