Couples Therapy

 

Have you found yourself and your partner experiencing: 

 

  • The same fights 

  • Feeling misunderstood

  • Not knowing how to reach the other person

  • Loss of intimacy and closeness

  • Communication problems 

  • Fears about the prospect of divorce

I believe that relationships with other people in our lives, especially our intimate partners, can be the source of the greatest joy as well as the most excruciating pain, leading to feelings of being misunderstood, anger and loneliness.  Because these people matter the most to us, distance and disconnection can seem unbearable.  Through my work as a Certified Emotionally-Focused therapist, I help couples see and articulate the negative and destructive patterns they find themselves in, discuss the often lost, scarier more vulnerable emotions in order to create stronger, long-lasting connections.

Individual Therapy

 

The thought of entering individual therapy, especially if you’ve never done it, can feel intimidating. I know this feeling having been in your shoes. I also know that it can reveal a totally different, and often more healthy, approach to how we address the issues in our lives. 

 

Everyone struggles at various times in their life. You may be considering therapy because of

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Loneliness and isolation

  • Rage and anger management

  • Body-image issues

  • Low self-esteem

  • Trauma

  • Abuse

  • Relationship problems

 

My focus in individual therapy is to understand and explore the root causes of your discomfort and create a safe space for you to grow and change. I believe that every behavior has been integrated into your life for an adaptive purpose.  Anxiety is there to protect you. Anger is there to protect you.  Numbness is there to protect you. Unfortunately, at times, these emotions can take over in a way that doesn't make sense but is overwhelming, all the same.  In therapy, I provide space to safely explore this emotional world and unpack the experiences that contribute to this way of being.
