My Approach to Helping
Do you feel unheard or misunderstood in your relationship with your spouse or family member? Relationships can be difficult to navigate at times! I strongly believe in John Gottman's Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, and as a Level 1 Certified Gottman Therapist, much of my work with couples is based on those key principles. I believe that in relationships, people want to feel (at a minimum): love, belonging, support, safety, understanding, trust, and peace. However, there are moments when we are missing something, and we can feel lost, unbalanced, and disconnected. The disconnection can lead to feeling depressed, anxious, stuck, and hopeless. Does this sound like you? Are you missing one of these key elements?
I am passionate about helping individuals, couples and families work through relationship challenges and conflict! I enjoy teaching strategies to help others more effectively communicate their message, to feel heard and understood. I can also help individuals learn how to ask to get their needs met while meeting the needs of others, rebuild trust and reduce jealous thoughts and feelings, and more!
