Individuals can get stuck and couples often bicker over seemingly small stuff. The easy solutions don't work. Why? In many cases, those petty problems are tethered to larger meanings for the individuals. The real solutions need to address these deeper issues. I provide a place where individuals and couples can safely explore and clarify -- what's really going on here? With both individuals and couples, I encourage people to look inward -- how am I contributing to this impasse? How is this related to my history? And importantly, what can we do about it now?
The most successful individuals and couples are those who can thoughtfully consider their perspective and the perspective of others in their lives. We work together to move away from blaming, attack/defend situations, into mutually respectful relationships. We learn from history and use it to make a difference in the future.
I am on the faculty of the Couples Therapy Training Program at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis. With more than 30 years in private practice, I bring professional experience and life experience into the therapy. Let me know if you would like to schedule an initial consultation.
