My Approach to Helping
Are you struggling with relationship challenges? Our world is filled with connections to intimate partners, spouses, co-workers, family members, and friends. These relationships go a long way in defining who we are. I can help you understand yourself as a relational being, then turn that understanding into better and more satisfying relationships. After all, for many of us, the quality of our relationships determines our happiness.
Every couple jointly creates a unique relationship dance. Understanding how this dance changes and evolves is key to the therapy process. I nurture the growth of each partner as an individual and a member of the couple. I've worked with families and couples for more than 25 years, with advanced training in both areas. I also work with adolescents and individuals.
My approach works well for a number of relationship challenges, including loss of romance, communication difficulties, infidelity, and lack of relationship satisfaction. I also help my clients with individual issues such as low self esteem, and difficulty with goals and direction in life. My style is to be active and engaged. I believe a comfortable, secure connection between myself and the client is the hallmark of successful therapy. This is true in my work with couples, individuals and adolescents as well.
