My Approach to Helping
REHEARSE FOR LIFE
I recently got a lovely note from a client of mine. She said that she often hears the questions I ask her in my soothing voice as she faces the anxiety and depression in her life. It really calms her down, she says, and let's her view her feelings in a healthier way. I love that. It shows how collaborative we can be in our sessions together.
I see individuals, couples, young adults and families of all cultures and backgrounds, though I'm sorry to say I only speak English. Many of you may recognize me from my previous career in the entertainment industry. I bring all of those creative practices into our work together. Let's find out what works for you.
I invite you to explore my website. In it you will find that I work very creatively using cognitive-behavioral techniques, positive psychology, mindfulness, spirituality, meditation practices (to reduce stress and become aware of how you breathe), humor, and most of all, inspiration for you to find and practice the gifts you already possess in your life right now.
I call my work "Rehearse for Life" for, in our safe environment, we can practice the communication techniques you need to have with yourself and others; without shame and without blame. What do you want to say? What do you need to express? Let's find out together.
I specialize in addiction issues and relationship problems. Infidelity and recovering after an affair, intimacy problems, preparing for marriage, separation and divorce, if necessary. We can work on developing trust, improving communication, codependency, and parenting. I do not take sides. I simply try and promote good and healthy communication during this important transition in your life.
I offer a free 20 minute consultation in my office to let you ask any questions you have about me or my practice and let you feel the energy between us in my space. I usually find that we start to jump right into the work.
Finally, let me say that I love my clients and I love the work that we do together, hard as it it sometimes for both of us.
