You will select me as your psychologist not because I simply listen- but because together we will change, create, and organize your true self. After 30 plus years of working with clients in psychotherapy, I continue to look for the unexpected, the surprises, and the unknown, about the important people in your life and most of all, renewal within you. It is exciting to define new directions in a career or a relationship. As an older parent, I still look for overcoming the challenges in seeing how we all grow. I have had training in schools, agencies, and hospitals.

This is why the relationship between you and I is most important in our work.
Sometimes, life deals us an awful hand with so many wounds and hurts that we have no idea how we'll get through. We feel sad, anxious, overwhelmed, angry, depressed and don't know how to move forward with that emotion. We find ourselves stuck in the same patterns and don't know how to change them. Frequently, our relationships struggle as a result. I believe in becoming whole and healing from these wounds and hurts. I believe each person has innate characteristics that make this healing possible. In therapy, our goal is to remove these constraints that prevent you from accessing your core Self and create a life that feels lighter.

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 an Old Saybrook relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Old Saybrook.
