Are your relationships burdened by loss of trust, constant fighting, or a feeling of disconnection? Are dealing with the fallout of an affair? Are you struggling with anger or communication issues? Do you you want relief from suffering, stress or isolation? My mindfulness approach, based on over 30 years experience, will help you get immediate relief through new perspectives and skills. By learning to see your problematic relationship patterns and negative cycles, you will also discover new pathways and new ways of relating. As you feel better, you will take steps to strengthen your new discoveries and abilities.
Because I focus men's issues, I offer both men and women a unique perspective. Men feel more understood, and women get support breaking through the wordless barriers their men face. I support women and men to free themselves of the pain of living in old roles and negative communication.
The Power OF Group Work: I stress the power of groups as an interpersonally rich, effective place for change. Group work gets to the heart of our isolation, & lack of community.
