My Approach to Helping
We all face certain obstacles that stand in the way of having a fulfilling relationship. Individuals experiencing couple distress tend to have higher rates of work and health-related problems & have been found to greatly benefit from couple therapy. A changed relationship with the same partner can provide freedom and joy without the wrenching pain of hurting others or starting over! I specialize in Compassionate Communication skills, Relationship Enrichment, Mindful Partnerships, Conscious Dating, Pre-marital, self-expansion through relationships, and Discernment Counseling/Uncoupling (for those who want to end their relationship).
I teach awareness practices to help with observing thoughts, soothing a dysregulated nervous system, caring for the mind and body, approaching feelings with mercy, focusing on life-affirming thoughts, staying in the present moment, and enjoying the goodness of life. Thanks to mindfulness, our minds, bodies, and relationships become healthier!
Therapy is a \"refuge.\" I won\'t try to fix you, I will only provide a holding environment for you to reconstruct a sense of yourself that\'s whole (not fragmented) & peaceful (not tormented) so you can unravel your own mysteries. My approach is nurturing and empowered. As a sex therapist & Tantra-Informed Practitioner (no hands-on work), I strive to protect innocence, safety & confidence.
