My Approach

Perhaps feeling lost or like a mess doesn't begin to describe your current struggle. Maybe you worry you're permanently damaged or that your relationship has experienced too much pain and resentment to recover. The isolation of keeping it together for the world makes the exhaustion, worry, and unhappiness even heavier. You are not alone and you are not doomed to this place forever. You can be ok, you can feel happier, your relationship can be fulfilling again. Common symptoms of these hidden struggles include: anxiety, depression, numbing, & PTSD. Whether you're an individual finding your way back to happiness, a couple adding new depth to your relationship, or you are just desperately trying to make things work, please call me. I'd love to help. What you see is what you get! My style is relaxed but direct, I want to optimize your time and growth.
