Wires crossed? Having trouble communicating with a person/people you love the most? Does the end of the relationship seem imminent? Wait up - cosnsider counseling before cord cutting. My philosophy is to ‘leave no stone unturned.’ In couples/family therapy HEALTHY communication in high conflict situations IS crucial. Family work is artfully dynamic - a science & skill. I’m proficient in both, working objectively with family members (individually &/or as a unit). This allows each person to safely express unmet needs. Being kind & respectful toward each other (I teach that too), is an important non-negotiable…whatever the outcome.
With 20 years in practice, I am somewhat of a 'Relationship Whisperer' and I specialize in helping interpret relationship speak. I find we often don't communicate what we actually want to say; instead we act it out. We have trouble hearing our loved ones; as a result, they too enact their emotions. Demystifying relationship communication is my superpower.
My clients refer to me as tough, often unfiltered, always kind... I don't sugarcoat or mince words. My hope is to provide you with insight and support through some of the most difficult times you might be facing and to make sure YOU know you'll get through it. I take my work very seriously, its a privilege. That said I try not to take myself too seriously:)
