North Pembroke, MA 02358
Offers online therapy
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.
