With You Every Step of the Way
A More Content, Healthier You
The relationship between therapist and client is really important for the effectiveness of therapy. If you are not comfortable, you will engage in the same protective processes that inhibit change to occur in the first place. I do my best to provide a warm, natural, humorous and relaxed atmosphere. Allowing personality traits like quirkiness into the therapy room, creates a safe place for us to explore all aspects of self.
Trust that this is going to be work. Sometimes laugh out loud funny, sometimes hard and emotionally draining. Just know that I will be with you every step of the journey.
Do you and your partner find yourself having the same argument over and over? Different times and context, but ultimately the same words are spoken, and the same, old wounds are opened.
Couples therapy provides a safe space to come together; where both parties are seen and heard, and both feel protected from either a barrage of words, or the equally scary -- silence. Together, we can identify the breaches of communication that cause people who love each other to consistently get stuck in the same patterns. We can work together on improving and strengthening the unit, while still preserving the individuals within it.
I provide a safe and warm space to address intimacy issues, sexual difficulties, co-parenting and communication problems.
If One in the Family Suffers,
the Whole System Suffers
Families realize that their system is hurting when one or more members are starting to show symptoms. These symptoms would be manifested as emotional outbursts or negative behaviors.
Family sessions will support the unit and system of the family, and together we will identify the patterns that perpetuate the symptoms of the individual, while also helping those hurting within the family.
Be seen, heard and validated
So much healing lies in feeling validated and heard. Sometimes our thoughts and feelings make us feel so out of control we wonder if we are going crazy. Until we learn that there are many that feel exactly this way.
Group therapy is a powerful way to feel seen and heard in a validating way. It is empowering to be a resource to others, while sharing your own narrative.
