When relationships are difficult, many couples wonder. Do we really belong together? Often these people are simply missing knowledge and skills about how to keep their friendship alive and manage conflict capably and constructively. Once both partners know how to apply the right principles, even when your difficulties have become serious, amazing things can happen.
I work at uncovering and breaking unhealthy cycles, and negative self-perceptions, that get in the way of your happiness.
My goal is that you develop a more expansive, positive and compassionate sense of self. This renewed sense of self you walk away with is stronger and clearer about who you are, what you want, and how to move forward in your life so you can get it!
I specialize in therapeutic work with toddlers, children, and adolescents who are struggling with a range of emotional, behavioral and social concerns.
I believe every child and parent has inherent strengths. My therapy approach brings this back to focus. They are not “bad kids” and “bad parents”, but there are circumstances that can reinforce or bring out unwanted behaviors and responses.
A research-based therapy
All relationships can be challenging and we all can get stuck.
I am Licensed Professional Counselor and Gottman Trained Therapist who loves working with couples, parents and individuals to build stronger and healthier relationships. Research has shown that almost nothing has as much positive or negative effect in your life as the condition of your relationship with your significant other or your children.
No matter what the problem seems to be, my work centers around expressing feelings, examining old dysfunctional patterns, learning new positive skills and finding new ways to relate. That lead to creating a new loving, communicative, and rewarding relationships. I use evidence-based concepts and materials and will provide you with a step-by-step, reliable guidance so you can break free from stuck patterns and develop the kind of relationship you've been longing for.
