My training is primarily in healing couples by looking at the repeated patterns that get in the way of safe intimate connection. We all have responses that are were wonderfully helpful in the past but are less successful at getting what we want now. My aim is to help you let go of what is causing distress and develop ways of interacting that create happiness and health. I also work with individuals and provide EMDR if deemed appropriate. Mindfulness, to self regulate, is central to my work.
In an intimate relationship we come in touch with deep feelings of vulnerability, fear and longing. To share safely creates connection. Whether you come in as a couple or individual we work with how you express and create what you want in your life.
I'm particularly interested in understanding the positive intention behind a behavior or statement. Old reactions can make room for current responses. Supporting people in the face of potential discomfort uncovers developing strengths. I have experienced marriage, divorce, blended family and co-parenting.
