My Approach to Helping
I work with individuals and couples.
Couples, in particular, often attempt to connect with one another, but this is sometimes more difficult than it sounds. We all desire to have that person to "come home to," and that desire starts with learning more about ourselves and our partners.
In-ti-ma-cy: "Into Me See" occurs when we are able to fully embrace our deepest fears and longings and share them with the ones we love. Instead of doing so, we learn to hide our vulnerabilities and find ourselves engaged in repetitive arguments, or isolating from our partners. Perhaps you've also experienced the sense that no matter what you try, you are unable to establish the healthy, secure relationship you've longed for. None of us is perfect, so in our work together, I'll help set the stage for healthier, richer conversations with your partner, focusing less on blaming, and more on how to become more known, more open and more truly a "couple."
With a gentle curiosity, it will be my honor to walk this journey with you, as one who can guide and support you along the way. Communication problems are the symptom, but no one can give you a "to-do" list that will solve every issue. In our sessions, you will learn how to communicate more effectively by learning to trust your partner more deeply. Humans are like that: Once we feel understood and supported, it's amazing how easily we can learn to communicate in ways we never dreamed of.
