My Approach to Helping
People hurt because they care. We are emotionally wired for relationships, and when our relationships hurt, we hurt. Whether I am helping you as an individual or as a couple, the goal will be personal empowerment and emotional well-being both in yourself and in the quality of your important relationships.
In INDIVIDUAL THERAPY, I work with adult men and women with patterns of depression and anxiety which are often related to hurts in important relationships. Since the work is emotion-focused, it leads to deeper and more meaningful understandings of your life patterns and relationships. This, in turn, leads to a more integrated sense of oneself in relation to others and the world at large.
In COUPLES THERAPY, the heart of the work is emotion focused. I help partners understand their roles in painful and stuck patterns so we can then turn to more vulnerable, underlying emotions where partners can feel into personally felt truths and needs which can then be openly shared with one another.
