As a Certified Gottman Therapist, I specialize in helping couples navigate their relationships by applying advanced skills to explore their stuck places and rejoin in the friendship that brought them together in the first place. Over my 15+ years as a Marriage & Family Therapist, I have witnessed the kind of pain that couples experience in the repeated and frustrating tension cycle of “Here We Go Again”. This perpetual cycle includes each partner having a dream and not being understood - causing for a stalemate and disconnection. I sit with couples that need to explore their cycle for greater clarity and have a goal of change.

Feeling isolated? An interesting career, friends, or loving family doesn’t protect you from feeling anxious, sad, & lonely. The needs of others come before your own? Sometimes, as children, we fundamentally altered who we were to adjust to trauma, role-reversals, and cold parenting. This can create an underdeveloped sense of self or we are sensitive the slightest shifts in the moods of others. Relationships are scary. When happiness finally starts to seep in, an overwhelming fear sets in that it will all collapse & disappear.

You are living a daily battle in your head about what you can eat, how much you should exercise, if you are worthy of taking up space. You are consumed by counting calories and by the negative voice inside that tells you, you’ll never be good enough or thin enough, smart enough or pretty enough. You are fed up with how the society/culture tells you how you should look and feel and behave. Your behaviors have you feeling exhausted and depleted and you wonder how you can go on another day. Others may think you have it all together on the outside, but the mental torture inside is killing you and feel like your life is shrinking.

You thought you had a pretty good lid on things, and then Covid hit. You feel lost, and there is a chaos inside you now. You used to be a little irritable, now the anger is white hot. When not angry or depressed, you are anxious and have a hard time concentrating. When you’re at work, you wish you were home, but when you’re at home, you can’t relax. Maybe you even have flashbacks. Maybe you drink too much. Things just keep on coming up, and your family and friends are kinda fed up too. They tell you not to worry about it, or even to just get over it! But you’re stuck.

Do you ever find yourself asking, "Why can't I just get my life together, get along with people like everyone else?" "Am I the crazy one?" How about "I'm tired of feeling misunderstood, walked all over, like I can't do anything right." It's easy to feel stuck and alone when struggling in life and relationships, as if you're "too emotional" and destined for a lonely and shameful life. Many opinions about what you're doing wrong and recommendations of how to fix discourage you, leaving you feeling even more flawed and confused than before. Most importantly, do you find yourself feeling sad and terrified that nobody will EVER get you?
