Announcement icon I am open to sessions in person, video - eg Google Meets, Zoom or FaceTime. Thank you.
You may be looking for marriage counseling (long-term, pre-marital, dating) or therapy for yourself. As a counselor/therapist, I believe we can work together to help you navigate any of life's many challenges - including your desire to be more connected with your partner, yourself and others in your life. You can work towards becoming more self-aware, and start uncovering unhealthy behavior patterns. Also, we can explore your core beliefs - beliefs we all hold onto that make up who we are, who we are not, and the way we feel about ourselves. Ultimately, my belief is - all of us are wired for change, for growth and healing.
Couples or individuals? I'll customize our work together (using evidenced based methods) to cultivate awareness of patterns causing you difficulties for yourself and perhaps your relationship(s). You can begin to relate to those unhealthy behaviors in new ways and heal their origins. Through our work, you'll better understand and resolve your struggles.
How do you want to show up and be seen in the world? In your relationships? Your work? Most importantly, how do you want to show up for YOU? All the while we are working together, I'll create a compassionate and safe environment so that you (or you and your significant other) can heal, change and thrive in your life! Reach out today to begin our work!
