My Approach to Helping
I help people to find deeper understanding, more effective coping skills, and more fulfilling relationships by working with them from a place of empathy, connection, and understanding. To create meaningful change, we explore problematic patterns of behavior and relating, find the underlying feelings and unmet needs in order to create new ways of being in the world and in 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.
