Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist #94741
It can be incredibly healing to have someone truly listen.
I am warm, engaged and non-judgmental. I offer time, space, and support to unpack what is going on in your life and to be curious about your experience. Curiosity gets us out of the middle of our life stories to discover beliefs and parts of ourselves we’ve never seen before. This new awareness can bring more capacity for self-acceptance, self-compassion and self-care. The hope is to have more tools to respond to both life’s events and relationships that challenge us.
I love this journey and enjoy working with individuals, couples, families and teens. I support those struggling with anxiety, depression and loneliness, childhood trauma, relationship challenges, grief, and feeling lost. I can help with changing patterns, establishing boundaries and life balance, creating meaningful relationships, strengthening your sense of self and developing healthy ways to work with your emotions. I come to this important work with valuable life experience with partner and family relationships, and life transitions including career changes, parenting and aging parents.
Working with couples is extremely rewarding. I have an interactive style that is supportive to both partners. I focus on:
-Creating emotional safety
-Understanding how we replay our past in our current relationships, so that we can respond instead of react
-Making space for both the “me” and the “we” in partnership
-Learning how to communicate non-defensively
-Developing skills to make conflict productive
This work is in service creating a partnership of connection and compassion.
I invite adult family members who want to improve their relationship with their siblings and/or parents to contact me. It is not too late to learn how to listen and understand one another better so that we can break free from the stories that keep us stuck in anger, resentment and pain. It never ceases to amaze me how really understanding the other can create empathy. Empathy makes space for healing to begin.
