Healthy couples are my passion! Couples work is a commitment to go deeper in your relationship and yourself. We will explore the ways you each connect and the barriers that you encounter when connection doesn't go well. It is often the differences couples have that create problems so we will tackle the issue of how to me a "me" in a "we". I'll throw in some of the latest research in neuroscience so that you will learn to calm and soothe and your relationship will have the space to flourish.
My education and training is in Psychodynamic theory and clinical practice. This type of therapy helps us delve deeper into the motivations and unconscious conflicts underlying why we do what we do.
I am an EFT-informed couples therapist. This means that I prioritize your emotional way of relating to one another. This helps us get to deeper issues beyond what is on the surface level. We will unlock stalemates, break negative communication cycles and improve bonding, communication and intimacy.
I am passionate about healthy relationships! I have the education, training, and experience to help you and your partner work toward a more satisfying relationship. Throughout the therapy experience, you and your partner can move from distance to bonding, isolation to intimacy, and confused communication to understanding.
Do you want to live with more authenticity? More passion? More creativity? Maybe you don’t have a single defining “issue” but are interested in learning more about yourself and your role in the world. Your motivation is commendable and together we can work to expand your insight, strengthen your resiliency, and reach your goals.
Anxiety is something that affects us all. You may have anxiety about a specific situation (a problem at work, social anxiety) or it may be more generalized and your anxiety involves deeper existential questions. Together we can explore the causes and effects of these intense emotions.
Whether your experience of depression is situational or rooted in something much deeper there is hope. I use my analytic approach to therapy to help you gain insight and resolve any underlying issues that may be contributing to your depressed mood. With thoughtfulness and sensitivity we can examine the meaning of depression in your life and find your spark again.
