My Approach to Helping
Has something recently overwhelmed you such as a loss, a change in career, or a family issue? I can help you sort through the many layers of these experiences - from helping you understand the impact of these events to addressing old childhood wounds that may have been activated by these stressors. Old patterns may be making it difficult for you to resolve these issues or interfering with your ability to create more fulfilling relationships. Change can be difficult, but the rewards are vast. I pay close attention to your personal experience of past and present and am mindful of the body-mind connection. We will work together to make sense out of your emotional reactions, thoughts, feelings, and beliefs and to change what gets in your way. Such an exploration often alleviates personal and interpersonal suffering and sets in motion a process of transformation!
Couples: Repetitive arguments that escalate often indicate important individual differences that are not understood, or family patterns that are asserting themselves in your relationship! You can improve communication skills, reducing conflict. By examining underlying issues, and facilitating deeper empathy, love, and understanding, I can help intimacy grow! Recognizing the complexity and uniqueness of each individual or couple with whom I work is essential to my collaborative and in-depth approach.
