Being in love and being loved is such an amazing feeling, then life settles and we get into our routines and before you know it the relationships we felt so connected to feel so distant and it's hard to remember what life was like in those early days. Work, child rearing, and the general grind of any normal day can feel so heavy on any relationship. Relationships are hard work and when we are willing to do the work they can grow stronger than ever and stand the test of time just like you always hoped they would. If you are looking to make positive changes in your life and enhance your relationships you are in the right place.

I believe in order to make changes in our lives, we must first examine the impact that past relationships, experiences, and environments have had on us. The therapeutic process allows us to examine and process how things that have happened to us can impact who we are as individuals and integrate the past into who we are in the present. The therapeutic relationship can help us to identify sources of resilience and strength that can help us to overcome past negative experiences. By connecting our past with who we are in the present, we can start the process of change.

I believe that clients have within themselves an amazing ability to self-heal, and the role of the counselor is to find and tap into that ability. I also believe it is important to learn about each client's world and to develop a relationship where clients can feel understood and supported while learning about themselves. This creates the space for exploring the choices they have and any changes they may want to make toward more personal fulfillment. Therapy for children may involve consultation with parents who need support meeting their child's challenges. Play therapy is used with children.

I approach each client holistically (whole picture) because I strongly believe that a multitude of factors (e.g. physical health, diet, sleep, unresolved trauma, quality of relationships) play critical roles in our mental and emotional well-being. Beyond symptom relief, I seek to uncover the origin of issues, as this promotes longer-lasting outcomes as well as opportunities for healing and self-discovery.

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.
