My Approach to Helping
26 years experience ~ Solution Focused Relationship Expert
COUPLES THERAPY ~ MARRIAGE COUNSELOR ~ PREMARITAL COUNSELING
Communication expert helping you get closer
It's so easy for good love to slide into bad patterns. Life gets busy, communication falls off and suddenly there is a barrier between you. I understand how that happens. I'm here to help you move past conflicts, get on the same page and feel closer to each other.
Relationships have a powerful impact on our emotions whether we are dating, living together or married. When love is off course it can distract you from focusing on other areas of your life.
Frustrating power struggles and unfruitful communication increase when a Couple gets out of sync. I'm here to help you reverse that trend and get into a loving zone with each other.
I can help you prevent or undo emotional damage, solve problems together and learn gentler communication. All of this will reinvigorate your connection so that you experience each other in new and more positive ways.
As a Couples Therapist I will give you a safe place to explore, vent and grow. We'll define the challanges and focus on solutions. I'll honor your feelings while helping you get unstuck.
Lack of trust, differences in personal rhythms and vulnerable mood patterns can often cause confusing resentments to form a wall which separates and frustrates leading to unhappiness in the relationship. It's not always easy to fix this on your own and sadly the passage of time doesn't always heal the differences between people.
If you find yourself in this spot I can help you. You will know that you have an experienced Couples Therapist working with you to improve your relationship. If you're struggling with issues of trust, communication or in emotional distress email me, let's see how I can hep you.
I counsel all relationship issues including the non-traditional. I have an unflinching fascination with all facets of human nature and I am happy to extend my expertise to you. Bring me your relationship issues; I will help you sort things out and find solutions.
I also offer special emergency sessions on Sundays in Santa Monica, CA 90404.
I look forward to speaking with you. Email me for fastest contact. Feel free to visit my personal website for extensive info on who I am and what I can do for you. (The link to my website is above under my picture.)
