"Is this you? All we do is fight! It seems like we never hear each other and neither of us listens anymore! It is so frustrating I do not want to come home and try. I have been successfully helping couples to develop the tools necessary to communicate effectively for more than 20 years. Having disagreements is not unusual. Learning how to resolve disagreements is a key element to healthy relationships. Conflict resolution is about learning to fight fairly by listening in an atmosphere of Respect, Trust, Safety and love and not placing my desire to be right over the relationship. $150 per 50-minute session. Discounted rates apt.11-4"

"It hurts to feel disconnected from your partner, parent, or child. And sometimes the harder you both try to close that distance, the farther apart and more lonely you both end up feeling. Yet you keep using the same ineffective relationship strategies, because you don't know what else to do! Or maybe you just give up. If yours is like most relationships, you're already spending enough time and effort trying to make it work -- you're just spending it in the wrong way.

"Life is a series of challenges. Many people wrestle with emotional clarity or the resolution of past experiences or circumstances. Most couples experience communication breakdowns or breaches in trust at some time. Old coping skills often become inadequate as time goes on and life's challenges change. For many, a collaboration with a therapist can provide a safe space to explore areas of conflict with oneself and others. Finding a good therapist is a matter of finding someone who listens, empathizes, is responsive, and can empower clients with hope and bravery to do the difficult work involved in change. "

I've helped many couples and individuals through the most difficult problems of an intimate relationship, and I can help you too, with powerful guided experiences that will bring you closer to your partner, and closer to yourself, will promote far greater awareness of your needs and those of your partner, and how to get them met.
