I firmly believe that the trust and the relationship that is built in each therapy session matters.
You've come to the realization that there is a circumstance (or area of your life) that for whatever reason is not changing at the pace that you want, or worse staying stagnant. While your current situation might feel suffocating at times, and as cheesy as it might sound, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. But getting to that point might require the support from an outsiders perspective. This is where I come into the picture. By providing an array of experience, both lived and professionally, my relational approach to therapy can help you understand the tools (skills/coping strategies/insight) you have for your own growth.

Therapy provides a relationship where you can rediscover and be your authentic self; feel truly heard and understood; let go of old, limiting, or inaccurate beliefs about yourself or others; or simply experience life the way you want to!.
We all can benefit from the support therapy offers from time to time. Some reasons people come to me: they may feel stuck in some area of their life; feel confused about who they are or where their life is heading; find that they have trouble showing up fully in relationships or lose themselves in relationships; struggle with feeling okay within themselves; have experienced a loss, and need someplace safe to grieve; feel lost, alone, and not in control of their life; are having difficulty reaching goals; or want to feel more joy, connection, and love in their life.

Building a trusted therapeutic relationship is central to my approach: one that can become a powerful instrument for you to use in finding your way.
What brings you to think of talking to someone, may have to do with personal or work relationships, with past or present trauma, with serious losses, and/or may be psychological in nature. Inner or outer obstacles may be shutting down access to inner resources and clarity, and, possibly, hope. Here, a safe therapeutic environment, where you are accompanied as you express the thoughts and feelings that occur to you about your situation, is needed. Unrushed, being accurately heard and responded to, you will gradually put together pieces of your own puzzle, leading to new insights and a sense of inner freedom.

In my work with couples, I start from the reality that relationships are hard. Whether you are baffled by your single-hood, or in the throws of trying to make it work, relationships can feel impossible and essential at the same time. In spite of the challenge, I know we all have the capacity for connected, secure relationships. I especially love working with folks who have never been in relationship, or who have a difficult time moving from dating into commitment. My relational work is also a good fit for sexual issues like low libido, sexual avoidance, erectile dysfunction, high conflict counples, and painful sex.

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.
