Do you experience stress in your relationships? Do you wish you could communicate better, understand your partner on a deeper level, and feel more connected? Maybe your partner or child is exploring their sexuality, gender identity or actively transitioning. These are unique experiences that call for a unique set of skills. I work with couples and families from all walks of life to heal their relationships and form deeper connections.
Whether you are wanting to strengthen your relationship or end it well, I strive to listen to what your relationship goals are and work with you collaboratively to help you meet those goals. I work to help your resolve misunderstanding and sort out the emotions you bring to your interactions with each other.
Families take on a life and dynamic of their own. Sometimes a family can be deeply impacted by outside stressors or when a member is struggling. Through deep listening, I help you sort out what's going on in your family and assist in helping you develop resilience and deeper connection.
Every person, couple, and family are unique and therefore require individual approaches. My training includes a variety of theories and techniques ranging from solution focused, to narrative, to multi-generational family exploration. Regardless of technique, I endeavor to deeply listen and use my skills and training to help you achieve your therapeutic goals.
I support the transgender, non-binary, and LGBTQ community with living in the world as their authentic selves. I also work with their families and loved ones to foster deeper connection and understanding of one another.
Being transgender or non-binary presents a unique set of personal and social challenges. Simply stated, our society has not caught up with what it means to identify as a gender other than the one you were assigned at birth. When a family member transitions, it can put a strain on family dynamics. To that end, I support all family members in the transitioning process to build understanding and deepen familty connection.
Sometimes the pressures of the world can affect our family relationships. Busy parents may lose touch with their children and children may be stressed by school, peer pressure, and academic and social expectations. This can lead to conflict in the family. I strive to deeply listen to each member to understand your dynamic and shift to healthier relational patterns that foster love and connection.
Over time, we can lose the connection with our partner that brought us together in the first place. We become emotionally distant and out of touch with each other. By using emotion focused, non-violent communication, and integrative couples and sex therapy, I strive to help you strengthen your connection to each other and deepen your relationship.
While ending a marriage may be the best course of action, it is a major transition that can pose a strain on partners and their children. My goal is to help you 'divorce well' so that you can take care of your financial, logistical, and emotional needs while minimizing the impact on your children and extended family.
