About

I'm moved by the longing of couples to be to be listened to with undivided attention, to be understood and accepted, to be seen in their virtues and appreciated, to be held with affection and delight, to be allowed to be themselves and shift from it's all about me to you need all the same things. Your criticism and force can step back when I help you care about your own wounds - that your partner can respect, but cannot heal for you. I walk with confounded parents to calm their reactions to their children's resistance. They feel ignored, failing to raise a caring and responsible son or daughter. Heart is heavy, values seem irrelevant. Unburden the heart so your children can hear your values, not your reactions. Couple and family difficulties have roots in old hurts where we managed with knee jerk reactions and attitudes of how things should be. I can help you hold perspective, where you value yourself when others discredit you, where you're open to feedback about what is not helpful without feeling criticized or angry. Therapy is not getting partners or children or peers to respond, it's being able to bring my values with conviction without being attached to the outcome
Internal Family Systems is a way to embrace and befriend your leading tendencies - to worry, to feel you are bad, to hopelessly give up, to rebel and protest, to make others do it your way, to escape from feeling. Relax the way you scold some parts and indulge others. See that they have a mind of their own, to do us good, in a way that doesn't quite work. Meet them with an open heart. Allow them to relax and follow your lead to handle challenging situations.
I am a pianist who hears the inner melodies in music, and where one phrase answers another. In your suffering I listen to your inner restlessness, and the unmet needs. I join with your heart that follows and wants only to calm and understand those needs. You can recover from unbearable losses that leave you trodding without vision, from conflicts where others don't see you or they discredit you. Your hurts wait for redemption. I hear you, but even more, I help you to respond, from your heart, to those hurts.
