In the beginning, your relationship felt fun, connected and loving, but now there’s distance between you, leaving you feeling more like roommates than lovers. When you talk, neither of you feel like you’re getting anywhere, or most of the conversations are about schedules, work or kids. One or both of you may feel lonely in the relationship at times. There may be some painful experiences that haven’t been healed, and some trust has been eroded. The possibility of enjoying each other again, as partners, lovers and friends, is one you and your partner feel ready to explore. You both long for a more meaningful and joyful relationship.

Most of the time we are able to meet life's challenges using our natural resources of life experience and supportive relationships. Sometimes more specialized help is needed. There may be patterns of behaviors or relationships that one feels stuck in, or fated to repeat over and over. In those instances I feel I offer a warm, steady, and skillfull hand in understanding the root causes of these distressing patterns, and guidance in how to be free of them...finally.
Are you struggling with managing stress? Are you experiencing struggles within relationships, work, home, and/or parenting? Do you feel stuck, tired, and frustrated with not having effective tools and strategies to manage all of life’s stressors? I teach stress management tools by becoming aware of ineffective stress responses, which have a negative effect on our ability to stay regulated and manage life's stressors well. I help clients repattern stress responses and I offer tools that allow for feeling in control, resourceful, and free to consciously create the life you choose, encouraging a ripple effect of positive change.
