Individual counseling can help one get back on track. Life with its challenges can sometimes feel overwhelming. Traumas, losses, life transitions, depression, stress and anxiety are struggles common to most. These difficulties can make it hard to function at our best and can affect our families, work and our overall sense of well-being and confidence.
Counseling can help you to recognize and change your distressed or habituated patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving to create a life more aligned with your deepest intentions of how you want to live. Therapy is a joint venture of identifying your goals and intentions. What do you want to have happen differently? In a kind and caring atmosphere I help you build on your strengths and experience. Each session is unique to the situation and to the person. Cultivation of Mindfulness (present moment awareness), and Self Compassion are the basis for personal growth. Somatic Focusing, inquiry and investigative skills will aid you in understanding your motivations, in unwinding past script, to resolve conflicts and to more easily find your way back to balance and a sense of freedom.

Couples counseling is often a vehicle to help couples find their way back to trust and love for one another. Through a safe, non-biased, caring process couples can share intimate details about their lives and interaction. This safe haven creates the possibility for couples to open up more easily. Each person will be heard and respected.
Couples therapy challenges couples to investigate their individual motivations and commitment to one another, as well as, to explore new, more effective communication skills. Nonviolent Communication skills are taught to help couples learn to communicate easily-to really listen and hear, to recognize trigger words that cause a sense of separation, to learn to disagree fairly. Distressed couples often find themselves repeating the same patterns, the same argument, over and over. My training in Marriage and Family Therapy can help couples identify their dysfunctional dynamics and choose new ways to relate to increase warmth and connection. My style is direct and dynamic. Couples say they appreciate the caring and supportive atmosphere, for the work of relationships is often challenging and can be painful. On the flip side, the results is often more connection which spurs more shared love and joy!
