I like to bring fresh perspectives to old habits and overwhelming issues, such as, depression,anxiety, grief, trauma, relationship problems, life transitions.
I understand it is not easy to come to therapy but talking to family and friends is entirely different then talk "therapy". This is especially true if you are depressed, anxious, grieved, struggling in your marriage or have trauma. Just take that first step and make the phone call and I will guide you through the rest. My clients are so surprised to find out what a relief it is to come to therapy and wonder why they waited so long. My seasoned listening skills and thought provoking questions will help you know yourself better and reach your goals. My style is light and warm yet focused on results. Growth is my specialty!

As an Imago therapist I can assist you and your partner (or family) with relationship skills and communication.
Does it seem like no matter how hard you try, you still aren't able to make concrete change in your life? Do you struggle to heal from the past, or a current crisis you need support with? Here are things clients said about working with me: "The number one quality you bring to your practice is kindness...your respect for me has allowed me the space to find respect for myself." "I have gained some real understanding of myself, my own struggles and patterns...this has helped me to let go of behaviors and thoughts that don't work..."

People always tell me that they feel comfortable sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings with me. I believe this is because they feel unconditional acceptance without any judgement. Many people I support are living with anxiety, depression, wrestling with a life transition, struggling in their relationships at home or at work, or just feeling stuck. If you are contemplating making a change in your life and are seeking guidance as you explore your options and the possibilities that change may bring, I can help.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Chester relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Chester.
