Counseling and Therapy
For some, counseling and therapy can be an intimidating prospect—perhaps a last resort in a time of crisis—when the circumstances and situations you are facing seem to stretch you beyond what you can bear.
Perhaps you’re facing a betrayal or a rupture in your marriage.
Or, maybe you are at a place in your life where everything is spinning out of control, and you need a safe, calming place to be seen, heard, known, and cared for.
Wherever you are at, whatever you are facing, reaching out for help is one of the wisest things you can do. You do not need to go through this alone.
My passion and purpose as a therapist is helping individuals and couples move from feeling stuck in damaging relational patterns or behaviors. I work with clients to first recognize then communicate their needs and feelings in ways which promote a more functional and fulfilling life, both personally and professionally.
I often see couples who have waited to seek counseling until their relationship is in crisis due to chronic lack of attention and/or due to an affair. This is rife for intensity in the counseling room. Utilizing a directive, compassionate approach, I guide couples into empathetic interactions leading to a safe and secure loving attachment.
There is nothing quite like the transformational experience of a couple who entered into therapy emotionally cut off or at war with each other, yet after much relational work are now deeply connected, committed and equipped to endure. It is likewise so rewarding to see that joyful expression on an individual’s face when understanding and realizing resolution and freedom.
