My Approach to Helping
***I work with individuals and couples who are locked in repetitive emotional cycles that are difficult to understand and difficult to break out of. I will help you express the underlying longings and needs you have for more intimacy and closeness with others. ** I provide a positive, mindful, solution oriented environment where you can explore and manage the stress that comes with living a real life. Your stress may be triggered by overwork, job loss, relationship issues or by more positive things like getting married or having a child. We will work together so you can develop new insights, learn to relax more and create a balanced outlook. ***You can learn to communicate more effectively, to pursue the life you want to live, to increase your tolerance for change, and to accept the things that can't be changed. I will give you a place to practice new skills in session, including practicing acceptance of yourself, other people and our human condition. ***I support women and men who want to develop better relationships with the important people in their lives. You can use me as a sounding board to find out what's going wrong and how to be more connected with others.***I offer Pre-marital Counseling for couples who are getting married for the 1st, the 2nd or the 3rd time and want to learn from the mistakes of a prior relationship. You can use this time to learn new skills and become more open with your partner so you can both make this relationship a success. We can work on improving communication at the emotional as well as the practical level.
