My Approach to Helping
Do intimate relationships cause you excessive stress and frustration? Are you tired of feeling unmet and misunderstood by intimate partners? In therapy, I’ll help you get clear on how to build a secure and loving relationship, and help you get confident speaking your needs in kind and effective ways. Whether you are struggling to navigate disagreement in an existing relationship, or want to build a new relationship, I know how it feels to be frustrated. Constantly worrying if you’re in the wrong relationship; wishing your partner would grow up and get past all the childish and inconsiderate behaviors; and feeling frightened and hopeless about the prospect of another relationship ending.
Fulfilling relationships are central to your well-being, and you can build a secure partnership that inspires and encourages you to be your authentic self. Together in therapy, we’ll start by getting clear about persistent areas of tension in your current or past relationships. Then, I’ll empower you with new relationship skills and communication techniques that enable you to speak your needs while simultaneously building depth and increased connection. By the end of therapy, you’ll feel more confident and emotionally at ease about who you are as a relational being, and what you’re willing to stand up for in your relationships.
