My Approach to Helping

We fill our lives with relationships of varying degrees of closeness and importance. Friendships, Intimate Partners, Spouses, Parents, children, etc. all have different meaning and value. When relationships struggle, so do other areas of life. Frequently, feelings of depression, anger, or stress coincide with an experience of disconnection within a significant and meaningful relationship. This feeling of disconnection is threatening and scary; it creates space for additional feelings of abandonment, and loneliness. When confronting these intense feelings, the all too common response is to withdraw, turn inward, and hide the disconnection. Unfortunately, this only intensifies feelings of disconnection, abandonment, and isolation in our most important relationships. This is a dangerous cycle that too many people frequently get stuck in.
