My focus is providing an opportunity to learn how to increase attention and awareness of thoughts, feelings, leading to behaviors that are not serving us; motivating shifts in thinking in order to respond rather than react. What is most satisfying to me in this work is once individuals or couples gain the awareness of how childhood experiences affect communication and reactivity, they are open to learning skills which enable them to change their communication patterns that formerly were feeding conflict and negativity, leading to empathy, compassion, deeper understanding and willingness to find resolution.
Other interests of equal importance is assisting clients negotiate life transitions, including managing grief, loss of health, relationships, loss of independence while maintaining dignity and self-determination with supportive guidance in a loving, caring, safe environment.
My objective is meeting my client where he/she is, working collaboratively to meet the goals set in the initial sessions.
