In a compassionate setting, therapy can help you feel more fully alive and more satisfied with your life. I work with individuals and couples, inclusive of all partner and family configurations. Individual therapy can help ease anxiety and depression. Communication and intimacy are common concerns for couples. Sometimes the initial focus involves attempting to restore trust.
As the author and family therapist Virginia Satir said: "Life is not what it's supposed to be. It's what it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference."
An experienced individual and couples therapist with a humanistic approach.
My experience includes helping clients explore their inner selves, as well as their relationships. I am a relationship and relationship trauma therapist. Sometimes our distress occurs within the context of how we relate. Therapy can provide a place to explore loss, sadness, a traumatic past, as well as current relationship challenges.
