Announcement icon Welcome to a virtual or in-person consultation with me. My office is equipped with an air scrubber and HEPA filter for our optimal safety.
Are you feeling overwhelmed and vulnerable as you attempt to navigate the COVID pandemic? Are you crying often and burdened with sadness over too many unknowns? With all of these pressures are you uncertain where to turn and feeling disoriented? Now is the time to speak with a professional about your concerns. I can help. Together we will develop a plan and set specific steps in motion to address your concerns. You do not have to be entangled in the same arguments over responsibilities, finances, sensitivity or loyalty. There is a way to stop the repetition, to resolve the nagging issues and to have a meaningful relationship.
Emotional intimacy is difficult. We pick the same type of person, even if it is a bad choice, because of their emotional familiarity. Old feelings and patterns of behavior have made it difficult for many to be in nurturing, adult relationships. These cycles of repetition can be resolved and replaced. A phone call to me is the first step in this journey.
With individuals I explore the emotional pulls that determine their patterns of counter-productive behaviors, anxiety and depression. In my relationship work I see each partner regularly and the couple periodically. This helps me better to know each person individually and to understand the strengths and distortions impacting their relationship.
