My Approach to Helping
I join, support and guide people in their self exploration as they work to achieve their goals and dreams for themselves and their relationships.
I work with people, individually or as a couple, who feel lost, stuck, anxious or just in emotional turmoil. The issues show up as affairs, career confusion, patterns of bad relationships, loss of emotional connection with their partner, substance abuse, loss of passion or engagement.
I also support people through life transitions which are positive but challenging like adjusting to college, a new marriage, a new baby or launching those grown babies. Along with joy and pride, people may feel anxiety, uncertainty, and loss of their former identity.
I help people to develop self-understanding, effective coping skills, and fulfilling relationships by working with them from a place of empathy, connection, and understanding. To create change, we talk about their concerns, feelings, needs, strengths, and vulnerabilities. Together, we find the threads of connection and meaning in the stories and feelings they share, in order to create the life and relationships they want.
