Juggling emotional challenges with the day-to-day activities of life is not an easy task. It can be exhausting. Often times, people lose themselves in their struggles.
This is a place to check-in with yourself. It starts with self-care. From a place of
self-respect and understanding, great work can be done. My role is to set the stage and help in the process of self-discovery. In a place of trust and respect, you will have the opportunity to reflect upon the challenges in your life. We will then set
goals and work together toward achieving them.
When a marriage is strained, day-to-day activities can feel overwhelming. The pain of not knowing where you stand in a relationship is very real, and can leave you feeling exhausted, confused, and alone. Relationship counseling is an opportunity for couples to build, or re-build a strong relationship in which each partner feels understood, respected, and loved. In session, we will discuss challenges, identify each partners needs, and learn skills that will help partners reconnect. We will also work towards improving communication by identifying negative patterns of communicating and learn effective listening and response. It is work for all involved. My goal is to assist the restoration of a safe, healthy, long-term connection between partners.
Family Therapy provides a safe, structured place for families to work through challenges, improve relationships, and open lines of communication. A common complaint of many family members is that they feel misunderstood. In session, we work towards improving patterns of communication so that each family member may begin to feel safe in sharing. This new communication will give family members a new found feeling of love and respect, and is the foundation for the family's success as we work through challenges. It is my continual priority in couples and family therapy is to provide a safe atmosphere in which every member feels as though they are an equal in the "system" and safe to participate in session.
