About

I specialize in helping couples and individuals develop "connection" in their marriages and relationships. To illustrate, your partner seems "distant" lately- so you seek reassurance. Instead of providing comfort, he or she "pulls away" in anticipation of triggering an argument. In turn, your insecurity grows yet bigger. Over time, the more one mate seeks "closeness," the more the other "distances." Partners become "stuck" in painful "circles" such as "Pursue-Withdraw." Both are hurt by each others "criticism" or "coldness"- and unintentionally trigger their mates' invisible "raw spots." Even if identified, "vulnerabilities" are difficult to discuss constructively without a "translator" (therapist).
Disconnection is repaired through corrective interactions. I promote "Emotional Safety" conducive to conversing in a new way. As mutual empathy is experienced, softer emotions and supportive behaviors emerge. Partners identify and align against their "circle" as misunderstandings are clarified. Disappointments and even betrayals yield to heart-felt forgiveness and compassion.
I serve as "guide" through a maze of "Interpersonal Difficulties" (inadequacy, intimacy, infidelity, anxiety, trauma, depression, grieving, shame, arguments, anger, jealousy, etc.). "EMOTIONALLY FOCUSED COUPLES THERAPY" is an evidence-based treatment supported by 3 decades of research; it reflects advances in adult romantic bonding, development of secure relationships, and neuroscience.
