I work with couples to manage their conflict, strengthen their friendship and appreciation, and to create intimacy through long term relationship shifts. With couples I utilize Gottman Method therapy, which is research based and tested. Couples therapy, believe it or not, can be an enjoyable and deeply healing process.
I utilize Gottman Method with couples in order to manage conflict, deepen their friendship and intimacy. One of the most important keys to long-standing contentment in a relationship (even when there’s significant conflict!) is learning how to repair the emotional harm partners have caused for one another. Couples therapy, believe it or not, can be an enjoyable and deeply healing process.
I work with clients to understand the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and actions in order to make positive changes in their lives. This can be of especial help when clients feel that they are out of control and reacting rather than responding intentionally. It is also helpful for people who struggle with anxiety or depression.
I love working with parents on a variety of issues including but not limited to; co-parenting more efficiently, behavior change with your kids, and becoming the type of parent you want to be. I base a lot of my work with parents in Gottman Method Emotion Coaching, which is research based and tested.
I am both personally and professionally involved with LGBTQ community and am very aware of the dynamics of being part of those communities. I find that, like so many oppressed groups, it is important to find support with someone who you don't have to teach the basics of your experience to along the way.
I work from the Gottman Method of couples therapy, which is research based and tested and considered by many in the field, the most effective roadmap for helping relationships to become stable and happy.
Post Traumatic Stress is the brain's natural way of dealing with trauma when it has gotten stuck and hasn't been processed. I work from a variety of research based methods to assist clients in processing their trauma so that they can move through it and get to the other side.
