Have you and your partner grown more distant lately? Or perhaps do you find yourself chasing short-term relationships, never quite sure if you are making the right choices? Is your sex life less satisfying than you think it could be? World events in the last few years have put a lot of strain on relationships and intimate moments. I love working with individuals and couples who need help getting un-stuck and on the way to more satisfaction and connection.
Mindfulness has been a successful way of life for thousands of years. Based on Eastern traditions it is a non-theistic philosophy, grounded in our core values and beliefs. Practicing mindfulness improves attention, focus, effectiveness, tolerance, acceptance, and compassion.
Much of my career has been working with individuals and groups from a cognitive behavioral perspective. There is a strong connection between our thoughts and beliefs, our emotional experiences, and the choices we make. Developing an understanding of that chain and the skills to influence it makes a significant difference in your quality of life.
Sexual issues are often the least talked about, yet the source of many complications, misunderstandings, and hurt feelings. I believe everyone has the right to a healthy and fulfilling sex life. Together we can work through the issues that keep you from a satisfying sex life. I am BDSM/kink friendly and comfortable working with the polyamory/ENM community.
Anger is often the only 'acceptable' emotion for men to display, while for women it is often 'unacceptable' to show anger. I will help you uncover what is behind the anger and resolve the source while developing the skills to more appropriately express yourself.
Having a lengthy forensic background, I am personally experienced with issues of vicarious trauma and burnout that many caregivers face, especially first responders. Together we will help you recover and strengthen your resilience against future traumatic exposure. I also have had many clients who are adults that were abused as children.
Life throws many curveballs at us. I will assist you in building and re-building your identity as you adjust to the unexpected turns your life takes.
