Sometimes life can get rough. Relationships can feel disconnected or heavy with resentment and distrust. Sex and intimacy can get lost in the shuffle of every day. Babies can come along making life feel completely out of control. Through it all, maybe you feel like you just don’t have what it takes, or you feel stuck in cycles of worry, sadness or loneliness. Here’s the good news: CHANGE IS POSSIBLE. Better yet, you have within you what it takes to make it happen. Together through therapy we can work to identify, challenge and reimagine the undesirable aspects of your life and relationships, making space for something better.
I work with individuals and couples on concerns such as: personal development, relationship issues, sexual/intimacy issues, post-partum mood disorders, anxiety, and depression. With a stance that is both compassionate and challenging, I bring to each session insight, creativity, empathy, a dash of humor and a host of therapeutic strategies that work.
Creating fulfilling, loving relationships, be it with yourself or with others in your life is absolutely possible. I’d love to work with you to make that happen. Shoot me an email or give me a call and we can get started.
