When we are in a happy and fulfilling relationship we can take on the world. Humans, we weren't meant to do it alone. I specialize in love & relationships. Do you ever find yourself saying yes when you really want to say no? Or saying nothing at all because you're walking on eggshells? Afraid the next thing you say will kick off the dynamic you know all too well. The highs are high and the lows are low. The good moments keep you around, keep you longing and hoping for when things will get better. The rest of the time you're emotionally exhausted. I help couples find the "us" again so they can fight the problem instead of each other.
I help couples and individuals heal from relational distress. Whether that be reconnection with a partner, picking up the pieces after the difficult and painful ending of a relationship, or overcoming depression and anxiety. My work focuses on improving relationships. The relationship with yourself, with your partner, and with your friends and family.
Ongoing interpersonal conflict + stress can negatively affect our mental health. I can help you and yours find a better way. E-mail is the preferred method of initial contact for all new clients. If you prefer a phone call, please expect to leave a voicemail message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Permíteme ser directa por un momento, la vida es dificil. El estrés de las exigencias de la vida nos puede dejar deprimidos y sin motivación. En otros casos podemos sentirnos confundidos o decepcionados porque todavía no somos la persona que queríamos ser. Quizas cuestionas el futuro de tu relación o matrimonio porque parece que ya no pueden llevarse bien. Es casi insoportable sentirte solo y sin amor incluso cuando tu pareja está presente. ¿Con qué frecuencia te preguntas cuándo van a cambiar las cosas o si es posible que cambien?
Me especializo en las relaciones. Tu relación contigo mismo/a, con tu pareja y con tus amigos y familiares. Juntos podemos participar en un proceso de exploración para descubrir tus fortalezas, identificar patrones negativos y comenzar el viaje hacia la creación de relaciones más fuertes y saludables. Y al largo plazo, una vida más satisfecha.
Ofrezco servicios en mi oficina y a través del internet. Todos queremos aprovechar al máximo esta experiencia que llamamos vida. Pedir ayuda es difícil. Enfrentar nuestros pensamientos mas obscuros y dolorosos, lo es aún más. Pero si al fin estas listo para lograr cambios positivos en tu vida y escoger la felicidad, yo te puedo ayudar.
