You can have a better relationship with yourself and other people. When there's a deepened connection with yourself, there's greater capacity for deepened connection and intimacy in relationship. In our work we will focus on the mind, body, spirit connection. We will work on helping you increase your objective awareness of how you show up in relationship, we will explore your thought process, how thoughts affect you and how to push away negative thoughts that no longer serve you. We will work on developing your capacity to sit with your feelings, even the difficult ones, so that when you feel yourself triggered you can remain calm and grounded. We will work on helping you develop compassion for yourself, which helps minimize the inner critic, and organically allows you to abide in innate confidence. We will work on expanding awareness of internal conflicts, which ultimately will allow you to make more conscious, healthier choices and follow them through.

Often problematic patterns in relationship stem from unhealed wounds from the past. When we encounter a deeper place of wounding in our work together that talk therapy can not fully address, we will use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) to help you move through and heal from that stuck place.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Relationship is my specialty. Through the many years of working as a therapist as well as my own life, I've come to view relationship as the vehicle within which we encounter our deepest wounding and that offers endless opportunity for transformation. Whatever unprocessed material we have in our psyche we still see come up in our relationships, in how we show up, in the patterning we repeatedly do. You could call me a trauma therapist. I like to view the work I do as helping people meet, address, unpack, rework that which no longer serves and thereby transforming alignment with the inner child to alignment with the conscious adult. When it's the inner child who shows up in relationship, it rarely works out, because no partner wants to be our parent. When it's the conscious adult who shows up in relationship, it can be a rich, deep, intimate, unfolding experience.
