Announcement icon I am offering a secureTele-counseling on-line site. It is Hippa compliant ,allowing us to view each other, while not in social contact.
My heart, for the past 38 years, has been dedicated to Couple Counseling! My hope is nothing short of Radical outcomes! I am genuinely seeking, from the heart, radical, sustainable connection, radical communication/ conflict management skills, resulting in radical, long term intimacy- instead of survival-at- best outcomes, which will gravitate back to an- auto-pilot, business as usual -relationship- My work with you is invested in the authentic sustainable experience of Thriving. A true sense of being felt, understood, heard, and accepted. A "transformation". A real sense of being Loved by and honestly Loving with the true person.
My specialty resides in difficulties infused in couple functioning hampering healthy couple development and relational flexibility. They highjack the relationship out of the "US" zone- lack of intimacy, poor communication/conflict management skills, the sense of disconnection, relational absence-Things that leave us feeling NOT turned towards, but away from.
In addition, I reach out to you who have given much of yourselves UP in relationships. Making futile attempts to gain others approval or operating out of fear that you might cause conflict in the home. Finding that your efforts are further exploited, guilted or shamed for it. Starting in childhood and now into adulthood, effecting significant relationships.
